So former Chronicle editor Amanda (Skow) Weatherman was amazed and baffled when she read “with dropped jaw” that Utah legislators expect its agencies, including the U, to obey its laws (Chronicle, June 2).

She shouldn’t be so staggered, and “with a sigh of relief,” vow never to return to the state. Her new homestate of Vermont has gun laws which make her concerns virtually insignificant. There, Vermonters may carry legally concealed firearms WITHOUT permission. This reasonable liberty was guaranteed to her by then-Gov. Howard Dean, former Democratic presidential candidate.

Deep breath, Amanda. The Utah law isn’t about guns at the U. It’s about the U obeying the laws like the rest of us.
