Florida Teachers Now Able to Arm Themselves Despite Uproar

We all know the saying about “good guys with guns” and “bad guys with guns”.

In America today, we face a dangerous dilemma for which the proposed solutions all seem far too complex…or nonexistent.

In an effort to keep the youth of the nation safe from gun violence, our first inclination was to enhance the punishments for those caught with firearms on our nation’s campuses.  Sure, this may have curtailed some of the “bring a gun to school” situations, where the intent of the weapon was only to invoke fear or gain “street cred”, but it did absolutely nothing in terms of stopping those hellbent on carnage and destruction.

Then, schools began employing off-duty and retired police officers as “security”…something that failed miserably and tragically in the case of the Parkland, Florida school shooting.

Now, in a third effort to protect the youth, teachers in Florida will now be allowed to arm themselves; a move that has been mired in controversy.

Florida’s legislature on Wednesday passed a bill allowing teachers to carry guns in the classroom, expanding a program launched after the deadly high school shooting in Parkland with the aim of preventing another such massacre.

Florida’s House of Representatives voted 65 to 47 to pass the bill after hours of debate over two days in which the Republican majority thwarted Democratic efforts to amend, stall or kill the measure. Florida’s Senate approved it 22 to 17 last week.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is expected to sign the bill into law, enabling school districts wishing to take part in the voluntary Guardian program to arm those teachers who pass a 144-hour training course.

The move will be seen by Second Amendment advocates as the only logical deterrent to the crazed and vicious would-be school shooters of the world.
