Group Offering Weapons Training for Utah Teachers

(SALT LAKE CITY) – A Utah organization is offering free concealed weapons permit training for teachers in the Beehive State.

The Utah Shooting Sports Council is holding the course today at the Maverick Center in West Valley City. As one of only two states to allow properly-permitted teachers to carry weapons on school grounds, the Utah group hopes the event will better train teachers facing potentially deadly situations.

Organizers say there has been an increased demand for the class since the Connecticut school shooting.
