Florida Governor Signs Bill Allowing Teachers to Carry Firearms

A bill was signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis that allows school districts to arm their teachers.

????It comes just a day after a Colorado school shooting left one student dead and 8 others injured.????The two teenage suspects will be facing at least first degree murder and attempted murder charges according to CNN.??????The legislation is an extension of a program that began after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida in 2018.????It allowed some school employees, but not teachers, to go through weapons training and carry firearms on school grounds.

????But with school board approval, the new law signed by DeSantis allows teachers to take part as well, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

????The bill also includes several other safety provisions which are reported to have received bipartisan support.

????However, WSVN says that only 25 of Florida’s 67 school districts are taking part in the program.

????Teachers that are allowed to utilize the program must go through a psychological test as well as at least 144 hours of training.
