Florida: Armed teachers in schools soon

Children with protest shirt on.

Every day, news hits us of another school shooting. Although we want to help solve the problem, we feel helpless against NRA power to control the legislative agenda. This week, once again they controlled the agenda by completing the passage of a bill to start arming some teachers.

The NRA urged their gun crazy members to contact legislators. Gun sensible people must do the same, except advocating for gun safety. Gun sensible people know the solution is not adding more guns in our schools, however they don’t know what to do. For them to act, they need the timely notification of active gun bills with actions to take.

The Bill

👎 Senate Bill 7030 and companion HB 7093 will modify the Guardian Program to allow trained teachers to arm themselves with loaded guns.
