Take 2: Sexually transmitted diseases, firearm safety and 2020 presidential race

2News Anchor Heidi Hatch hosted Maura Carabello, from the EXORO Group, and Greg Hughes, former Utah House Speaker for a new episode of the Take 2 podcast.

The 3-member panel squabbled over issues that ranged from “The Holy War” ( Utah vs. BYU) outcome to the shrinking Democratic pool of presidential candidates.

Other issues debated include:

  • INLAND PORT AGREEMENT FROM SLC MAYOR AND COUNCIL; Despite overwhelming public opposition, the Salt Lake City Council voted Tuesday to approve a hefty tax reimbursement to a developer in the city’s northwest quadrant, where an inland port is planned.
  • FIREARM SAFETY: Will it stop school violence and or suicides? “This addresses the reality that guns are a part of our society and are often in places where children can find them,” Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said.
  • STDs ARE THE MOST COMMON DISEASE IN UTAH OVER INFLUENZA: Two sexually transmitted diseases top the list for the most common diseases in Salt Lake County and the health department says the current approach to sex education is not working. Chlamydia and gonorrhea — the two top reported diseases — are more common than the flu (influenza,) hepatitis C and tuberculosis.
  • TRUMP USES FEMA FUNDS FOR ICE COURTS AND IMMIGRATION JAILS: Good idea to solve border issues or bad idea as a Cat 4 Hurricane barrels toward Florida?
  • 2020 RACE GETS SMALLER: Sen. Kiersten Gillibrand bowing out leaves only 10 will debate in Houston in September.
