[url]http://www.sltrib.com/2003/jun/06252003/utah/69718.asp[/url] Teachers get preliminary OK to carry weapons     The Jordan School Board gave preliminary approval Tuesday to a policy outlining the conditions under which district employees may carry a concealed weapon on school property with a valid permit.     Employees must keep the weapon concealed and employees who legally use a concealed weapon on school grounds do so in their individual capacities, not their scope of employment.     The Jordan board will formally vote on the policy at its July 16 meeting.     Both policies are in response to a law passed during the 2003 legislative session, Senate Bill 108, that harmonized conflicting parts of state code. One section allowed concealed weapons on school campuses, while another prohibited it.     Also Tuesday, the board agreed to consider a policy that would not allow student travel overseas, to Canada or to Mexico unless a principal can demonstrate "the absolute necessity of the travel and that all appropriate safety considerations have been addressed."     "I would hate to see students lose an opportunity because the policy is so rigid," said David Stoddard, the district's administrator who wrote the policy.     The travel policy also will be up for a formal vote at the July 16 meeting.     -- Ronnie Lynn

I am living in AZ right now because I am going to school down here, but my homestate is Utah and I plan on moving back there when I graduate. I heard about a bill in Utah that would make private businesses, that don't allow guns on their property, financially responsible if a gunman kills or injures somebody and he could have been stopped by someone with a ccw. How cool is that! Utah rocks!

My mother taught school in a bad, bad part of Phoenix AZ. I'm NOT saying she packed a Taurus .38spcl to school or anything...but she DID have a CCW.
