Gun-rights advocates plan to provide weapons training for 200 Utah teachers. These advocates believe arming teachers and licensing them to carry concealed weapons is the key to protecting schools from deadly shooting rampages.
The Utah Shooting Sports Council said it would offer a $50 concealed weapons class free of charge for teachers. Instruction using plastic guns is set to begin at noon today inside a conference room at Maverick Center. The Maverick Center is a hockey arena in the Salt Lake City suburb of West Valley, Utah.
