(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Salt Lake County School Board's abiding by the law, but still says guns and schools don't mix.

Utah state law allows those with concealed weapons permits to carry guns on school campuses.

But many educators oppose guns in school altogether.

The Salt Lake County School Board approved a policy Tuesday that will comply with the law, while at the same time encourage folks to leave their guns at home.

The school board will post 28 "Stop" signs on its schools asking licensed weapons bearers not to carry guns on school grounds.

A judge recently upheld a policy banning guns at the University of Utah.

Gun control groups want the Legislature to reconsider the law to allow Kindergarten through 12 grade schools to adopt the same policy.
