SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) — Nancy Miramontes had 30 seconds to find the gunman.

The Utah school psychologist weaved through a maze of dusty halls before spotting him in the corner of a classroom, holding a gun to a student’s head. She took a deep breath and fired three shots, the first time she’s ever used a gun. One bullet pierced the shooter’s forehead.

“Nice work,” a police officer told her as they exchanged high-fives in front of cardboard props representing the gunman and student.

Miramontes recently joined 30 other Utah teachers at a series of trainings where police instructed them on how to respond to an active shooter. Teachers went through the shooting drill inside a warehouse set up to look like a school, then moved outside to a shooting range.

Not at all surprised.

I lived in SF, Utah for about 10 years...worked in SLC for some of those years. I worked in an office with roughly 70 guys and 20 or so women. Every man (except for a very few lefty transplants) owned guns and shot at the range, in the woods or in the mountains when ever they had the chance. Most were also avid hunters...though not a single FUD among them. They all loved a good weapon and there was no such thing as too much firepower. (Those Mormons are prepared to defend their state.) Most of the women were pretty much the same, not as many hunters though.

Moving back to Ma. 5 years ago was serious culture shock. Had been away about 25 years and boy things had changed in the (now) Peoples Republic of Massachusetts.

Before you ask...family responsibilities.
