SALT LAKE CITY -- A Utah group is offering free concealed weapons permit training for teachers.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that instructors with the Utah Shooting Sports Council will provide the course for school employees Thursday in West Valley City.
Organizers say the goal is to arm more teachers in the aftermath of the Connecticut school shooting, where 20 children and six educators were killed.
The group says teachers will also learn how to respond to an attack.
Utah and Kansas are the only two states that allow people with concealed weapons permits to carry their guns in a school.
The Utah class has been offered to teachers before, but organizers say there is increased demand after the Dec. 14 Connecticut massacre.
