One year after Parkland, Florida lawmakers renew push to arm teachers -- with help from Ron DeSantis

Lawmakers have revived the idea of arming teachers — and it is gaining support, despite continued opposition from across Florida.

This year, lawmakers have revived the idea of arming teachers — and it is gaining support. A bill expanding the existing “Guardian” program, Senate Bill 7030, passed through a key committee Tuesday, which means it could be one of the first bills the entire Florida Senate will consider once legislative session begins March 5.

“I want someone there to protect my eight grandchildren and their generation,” Sen. Dennis Baxley, R-Ocala. “They deserve to have someone ready.”

2. And how will this help other areas??

What about a nightclub?
What about an outdoor venue?
What about a church or synagogue?
What about a yoga studio?
What about a bank?

Arming teachers will not help anyone. This is the most ridiculous bill I've ever seen in Florida. And there have been some whoppers here. We don't want to pay our teachers enough, but yeah let's give them a gun instead. Or hey we don't want to give our students enough funding for the classroom, but let's fund arming teachers. ARGH!

3. I actually like giving every kid a hockey puck

If a shooter is detected pull a plug, in classrooms and halls, which drops hockey pucks everywhere. Kids bean shooter.
