The powerful lobby claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut has been the catalyst for the massive interest, but Carol Lear, a chief lawyer for the Utah Office of Education said that the move was a ‘terrible idea.’Arguing that teachers could be overpowered for their guns or misfire causing an accidental shooting, Lear said: ‘It’s a horrible, terrible, no-good, rotten idea.’

I wonder if by now Ms. Lear has been informed that Utah does not have Gun Free Zones in schools and a decent percentage of teachers do carry in school grounds. And if the gun misfires, it means the pointy thingy at the end of the cartridge called bullet, failed to come out of the gun and hitting anything at all.
Thank God Ms. Lear’s blunder did not get picked up by an international media organization and her ignorance plastered across the globe….wait…never mind.
