DeSantis signs bill allowing more armed teachers

The Florida legislation lays out a set of rules by which public school boards, teachers, charter schools, and law enforcement authorities must abide before any such program can take shape.

Guardians must have a valid concealed carry license, and complete 144 hours of training, including a psychological evaluation and diversity training.

On Wednesday, DeSantis received and signed the bill, which was passed by Florida lawmakers on May 2.

Ron DeSantis, a Republican, signed into law Wednesday a measure that will allow teachers to carry a firearm in school.

Authorities: ‘Multiple’ students injured in shooting at suburban Denver school
The Sheriff's office tweeted that there was an "unstable situation", but they are still investigating the situation. A Douglas County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said officers could still hear gunfire when law enforcement arrived.

Last week the state House and Senate passed the measure despite protests from Parkland students and parents and other gun control activists who argue it will put more children in danger and cause confusion during a crisis. The program allows teachers to go through a screening process and training by their local sheriff's office before they're able to legally carry a firearm on school grounds. It expands the guardian program that allows school districts to approve school employees and teachers with a role outside the classroom, such as a coach, to carry guns. Democrats and the teachers' unions strongly objected, saying it made schools less safe.

The bill makes other changes to a school safety law enacted after 17 people were killed in February 2018 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Even though arming teachers is now legal, that doesn't mean a majority of schools will allow it. Twenty-five of 67 Florida school districts are taking part in the program, including Lake and Broward counties.

Many teachers in Florida seem willing and eager to arm themselves.
