THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE: Utah lawmakers approve gun safety training for students

"Utah lawmakers on Thursday approved the creation of a pilot program to provide basic gun safety training to students.

The program, optional for school districts and students, would instruct eighth-grade children on what to do if they find a gun, particularly to not pick it up and to alert an adult.

"I'm a firm believer that education is the best form of prevention," he said."
