I seldom see eye to eye with Gov. Gary Herbert, but two of his recent decisions have inspired a renewed confidence that perhaps he really does have the best interests of Utahns at heart.
Either that, or he capitulates on core Republican principles in the face of citizen opposition for the sake of re-electability. But I'm willing to give credit where it's due.
First, the governor did the right thing by vetoing HB76, a bill that would have preempted background checks and safety courses for any adult wishing to carry a concealed sidearm for self-defense.
