Jmbrown With a stroke of Gov. Gary Herbert’s pen this week, Utah became the first state in the country to have an official state gun, John Moses Browning’s 1911 pistol. Utah native Browning’s famous gun now joins the elk as the state animal, the Bonneville cutthroat trout as the state fish, and the Dutch oven as the state cooking pot. Salt Lake Tribune.
