Salt Lake City, UT – Both houses of the Utah legislature have now passed a bill that tells the federal government it may not regulate guns made or sold within the state's boundaries. And hundreds of public employees turned out for a hearing on changes to their pension system, though only a few got to speak. KUER's Dan Bammes looks at legislative action on Wednesday.
