Utah Official Apologizes For Sending Out Gun-Designed Mask

A state official has apologized after a family was sent masks featuring a gun, the American flag and the phrase “don’t tread on me” as part of a program offering free face coverings during the coronavirus pandemic. KUTV-TV reported that an official with governor’s office of economic development said it was a mistake and that the design was one of about 150 that were identified as potentially controversial and not to be delivered. Christine Passey-Spencer of Salt Lake City says she received the masks this week after ordering them from a state website two months ago.
