Rep. Curt Oda, R-Clearfield, however, said it’s great to see teachers taking action. Oda, who visited the class Friday, has long been a gun rights advocate at the Legislature.
"Basically, these teachers at Sandy Hook, all they could do was go, ‘Stop!’ ’’ Oda said, holding out his arms. "And what did they do? They died with their kids."
He said he’s not planning any legislation this session addressing guns in schools and hasn’t yet heard of any other lawmakers proposing bills.
Last year, Rep. Carol Spackman Moss, D-Holladay, ran a bill that would have allowed parents to find out which teachers carried and move their kids out of their classes, but that bill died quickly.
