I love Utah's laws and the fact that they have protecting children written into what you can do in the leagal use of a firearm.
Cheers for them--making it read as if all teachers in Utah want gun training. I bet at least 200 teachers in FL already have carry licenses. The missing cog on the wheel of defense is the "No Guns" in schools. Allowing "one" teacher in a school to carry? Hardly more effective than "one" armed officer at a school. But I suppose that would be a start versus having none.

I am NOT against teachers carrying in school..... BUT .... I also like armed SO"s...... here is my reasoning....
If a shooting is occurring , what's the teachers FIRST concern .... their pupils in their class.... and protecting them.
The first priority for an armed SO , is to stop the shooter.
So, I ... personally.... vote for BOTH.
