After US school shooting, teachers keen on receiving firearms training
In the wake of the mass shooting in Sandy Hook Elementary School, US which had over a score killed, including children, about 200 teachers in Utah will receive special firearms training — with a plastic gun — in order to carry concealed weapons in their classrooms in the future.
Aposhian, the chairman of the Utah Shooting Sports Council, said they will waive the $50 fee for the training. The instruction will feature plastic gun.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Utah allows citizens to carry concealed weapons into public schools without exception. By law, Utah gun permit records are close to the public, so parents will not know which teachers in their children’s schools will be carrying weapons.
