    I just love being right! We will see more and more if these incidents occur, and thankfully no innocent students have been killed yet, BUT, it's going to happen. Meanwhile, there's not one documented event where an armed teacher foiled a shooter event. I hope this teacher is fired, and if you want to carry a gun 24/7, I suggest the police or the military. Somehow I doubt they'd want you.

    A Utah elementary school teacher who was carrying a concealed firearm at school was struck by fragments from a bullet and a porcelain toilet when her gun accidentally fired in a faculty bathroom on Thursday, officials said.

    The sixth-grade teacher at Westbrook Elementary School, in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville, was injured when the bullet struck a toilet and caused it to explode, Granite School District spokesman Ben Horsley said.

    Officials were still investigating how the gun discharged. "This just appears at this point in time to be an accident," he said.

    Horsley said Ferguson-Montgomery has been a teacher with the school for 14 years but he did not have her age. She was carrying her gun legally with a concealed-firearm permit, Horsley said.

    Utah is among the few states that allow people with concealed-weapons permits to carry guns in public schools, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Teachers are not required to disclose that they are carrying a weapon, and administrators are prohibited from asking if they carry or barring them from bringing their weapons.

    Thursday's incident "is exactly what we are working against," said Miriam Walkingshaw, co-founder of Utah Parents Against Gun Violence, which is opposed to guns in schools. The risk of having any guns near children is greater than any risk teachers hope to prevent, she said.

    And this is why my child will NEVER attend a school where it's accepted that teachers or administration are allowed to bring weapons to school. Cops and trained security, yes, everyone else, including parents, NO.

    "Teachers (Mostly Libs) SHOULDN'T carry guns at school PERIOD!"

    The correct statement is; LIEberals shouldn't carry guns period.

    If they are not smart enough to see through the LIEberal bull shit then they are in no way smart enough to carry a gun.

    "LIEberals shouldn't carry guns period."

    You're right. Being brave and carrying a gun is a contradiction.

    "Being brave and carrying a gun is a contradiction."

    Maybe. But being prepared and ready to protect yourself and your loved ones by carrying a gun is not.

    I'll bet you don't have any fire extinguishers at your house because; "who needs them, we have the fire department."

    Sane people need guns to protect themselves from drunken union thugs.
