Proposal To Arm Teachers Could Hit Roadblock In Florida

Thursday, March 8, 2018

On Wednesday, the Florida legislature passed a bill that would raise the purchasing age for firearms, ban bump stocks, and, controversially, allow for the training and arming of teachers.

Now the legislation must be signed by Gov. Rick Scott to become law. But Scott, who opposes the arming of teachers, has publicly expressed reticence about moving forward on it.
