200 Utah teachers to attend concealed gun training after Connecticut

MORE than 200 Utah teachers are expected to head to a meeting tomorrow to undergo six hours of concealed-weapons training as organisers seek to arm more educators in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Connecticut school shooting.

Utah Shooting Sports Council said it normally has a dozen teachers annually for instruction required to legally carry a concealed weapon in public places. The state's leading gun lobby decided to offer teachers the training at no charge to encourage turnout after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.

Organisers who initially capped attendance at 200 were exceeding that number by today and scrambling to accommodate an overflow crowd.
