Wyoming State House passes bill to allow permitted concealed handguns in schools

The bill is restrictive in that you have to depend on schools to allow these guns to be carried by staff.  It also will continue the ban on others being able to carry on school property.  Still this is a step in the right direction.  From Fox News:
The Wyoming House has advanced a bill that would permit local school boards to allow teachers and other school workers who hold concealed carry permits to carry guns at schools. 
The House voted 54-to-6 on Thursday in favor of a bill sponsored by Cheyenne Republican John Eklund. 
Eklund says he believes the state needs to act on the issue urgently. He says there's little if any law enforcement in many rural areas and says school workers need to be ready to protect themselves and their students. . . .
