Colorado teachers will not be packin' heat after all.  Yesterday the House Judiciary Committee defeated HB 14-1157 on a 7 - 4 vote, which would have allowed teachers to carry concealed weapons in school.

The sponsor, Rep. Stephen Humphrey of Weld County, said his bill

didn't mandate that teachers be allowed to carry concealed weapons, rather it would have authorized school boards to develop policies that would allow employees to carry a concealed weapons on school grounds, if they hold a valid permit.


There is still a slight chance that an amended bill could be brought up again later in the session.
