Florida Bill Allowing Teachers To Carry Guns Goes To Governor

"It allows the good guy to stop the bad", he said.

This bill makes texting and driving a primary offense, meaning if you are caught typing on your phone while the vehicle is moving a police officer can pull you over.

The deeply controversial move, which was approved after hours of debate that sometimes brought lawmakers to tears, would ostensibly make schools safer in the wake of last year's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to sign it into law.

"The Broward County School Board voted on a resolution against arming teachers in March 2018", Robert Runcie said in a statement to the Herald. Opponents contended that the introduction of more weapons in schools would place children at risk, raise the dangers of mistaken shootings and lead to more violence against African-American students because of inherent biases.

In the aftermath of the massacre, in which 1 7 people were killed, state representatives lifted a ban on arming those who "exclusively perform classroom duties".

"Here in Florida, we look after our first responders and I am honored to sign this bill to help ensure our firefighters who are battling cancer have the tools and benefits they need", said DeSantis.

"As the minority caucus in the Florida House, our options in stopping risky bills are limited", said Rep. Anna Eskamani, D-Orlando.
