Letter: Cox’s statement on Utah’s “tradition of respecting private property rights” is a loaded proposition

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Gov. Spencer Cox at a news conference in Salt Lake City on Thursday, March 11, 2021.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Gov. Spencer Cox, speaking about mask mandates, said, “Utah has a strong tradition of respecting private property rights.”

That statement is not true. Just ask any private property owner who doesn’t want people carrying loaded weapons on their property.
