Florida teachers can now carry guns in the classroom

One commentator suggested local school districts in Florida would not approve the measure, even if it is signed into law by the governor. A shortly after the massacre in Parkland to the North of Miami law passed had teachers from the carry Guns except while in the service so far.

Suffice it to say that most law enforcement officers, public officials, educators, teachers, parents, and students - particularly here in South Florida - believe that arming teachers is pure folly.

- Floridians would be able to grow fruit and vegetables in their front yards without fear of local government fines under a bill going to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Most Democrats voted against the bill, which was strongly opposed by teacher unions.

Superintendents in the Miami-Dade and Broward county school districts said they plan to opt out of arming teachers.

What might we expect to see across the Florida school-board landscape?

However the amendments run in line with Donald Trump's vocal pro-gun stance and his statement directly after the Stoneman High School that "if you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly".

"We are a stronger state when we protect our residents, foster safe communities and respect the work of law enforcement at every level", said DeSantis. While that is down from $100 million wanted by many, it was noted that more than $100 million will be available for Florida Forever this next fiscal year due to the fact dollars from the current year will be left over.

The bill was aimed to deter those who might harm students, according to Republican Rep.

Teachers who want to carry guns in districts that choose to join the program would have to undergo police-style training, psychiatric evaluation and drug screening.

"Teachers need to teach", said Rep. Mike Gottlieb, D-Davie. Upon graduating from Michigan State University, where she was a writer and editor for the school paper, she promptly moved back to Florida.
