(Washington, D.C.) — Governor Gary Herbert’s schedule today in the nation’s capital includes a meeting with National Rifle Association president Wayne LaPierre. “The Deseret News” says neither the governor’s office nor the NRA is responding to requests for information about the meeting. The paper quotes University of Utah political science professor Matthew Burbank as saying the conversation is probably going to be about the governor’s veto of a “constitutional carry” gun bill the NRA backed and the Legislature passed earlier this year.
