Utah Town Makes Arming Households A Top Priority
Teachers at Spring City Elementary School won't be required to attend Friday's concealed weapons training, but can if they wish, Principal Mark Thomas said.
"I don't think there is anything wrong about being educated how to use a gun," Thomas said.
But Thomas doesn't believe having more armed teachers would necessarily prevent or mitigate the damage in mass shootings. Utah law allows teachers to have concealed weapon in classrooms, but the district doesn't advocate for that, Thomas said.
"By bringing weapons into school, are we creating more problems than we are solving?" he asked. "It could create a new problem. We don't want to deal with that problem."The proposed ordinance will be discussed at the Feb. 7 City Council meeting. A public hearing will be held three weeks later.
