Around 8:45 AM on Thursday, a teacher in the Westbrook Elementary School in Taylorsville, Utah was shot in the leg when she was in a faculty bathroom before classes started. The good news is that no one else was injured, and the teacher remains in "good condition" at Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah. The bad news -- at least for responsible gun owners and worried parents everywhere -- is that she shot herself. Accidentally. With her perfectly legal firearm.
The teacher, who was not identified, managed to shoot herself in the leg when the weapon was discharged, and suffered an injury when the bullet entered and exited her leg. By all accounts this seems to have been a tragic accident, but it's interesting to know she wasn't required by any law to notify the school that she was armed in the first place.
