Brittany Laveder started this petition to Utah State House and

       In Utah,  it is legal to open carry firearms at schools K - 12. I have seen this at my child's elementary, and a day doesn't go by where he isn't freaked out wondering why this man and woman have guns out.  In my opinion, there is NO reason anyone without a permit should be carrying guns on school grounds.  There are small children everywhere and accidents can happen with open carry guns where children could grab the gun or accidentally set it off.  It also instills fear into the kids,  making them think they're in danger if people are carrying guns at school.  Not everyone follows the rules to put their gun on safety and not have a bullet in the chamber,  which is what the law requires,  but no way to really enforce that.  People are currently allowed to open carry with no training or permit around small children who are already being faced with fear of shootings at school. 

     It is only logical to ask that anyone who feels the need to carry at a elementary school,  be required to have training from a concealed permit license. This should be a law to avoid the probability of gun accidents at school.  Any gun at school should be concealed for the peace of mind of the children and their parents.  

       I would ask that all parents sign this, we are seeking safety in school zones and we are asking civilians who are not trained with a concealed permit,  to leave their guns in the car or at home.
