Senate scales back arming of teachers in gun bill

The amendment also names the program for slain assistant football coach Aaron Feis, who has been hailed as a hero for shielding students during the school attack.

Still, even with that change, Sen.

Larsen, a Democrat, and Republican Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Illinois) announced a bipartisan letter requesting $150 million for Secure Our Schools grants for next month's funding bill. "That we've gotten somewhere", he said.

"The goal is to make sure that those instructional personnel that are in the classroom can not participate in the program", Garcia said to the Times.

"I've heard that all of a sudden the folks that have been proponents of teachers all these years are saying that teachers are now incompetent. they're racist, they're bigoted, they're going to target black boys and brown boys". Scott also opposes arming teachers. The annual 60-day session is scheduled to end Friday.

"This is a risky bill for people of color, particularly, I believe, young black and brown boys, young black and brown girls, black and brown teachers, males and females". I want that to sink in.

The roundtable, held at her office in Sunrise on Monday, brought together a task force of community leaders, school board members, cops, clergy and students calling for more gun control than is being considered in Tallahassee and given some lip service in Washington, D.C.

If just one more senator voted no instead of yes Monday evening, the bill would have died.

"They're politicians and I think they'll pander to whoever is giving them the most money at the time", Joe Pierson said. "But I also support the fact, that if this bill pass, we're doing more for the mental health of our students than we have ever done and that's commendable". But, it's certainly appropriate to have administrators and others with security responsibilities. Bill Galvano, stressed that the measure was meant to be the first in a series of steps to ensure that another mass shooting is avoided.

The Florida bill would raise the age limit for gun purchases from 18 to 21, expand a three-day waiting period on handguns to include all rifles and shotguns and ban "bump stocks".

A House committee last week approved similar legislation, including a provision allowing local sheriffs to create voluntary programs for deputizing school personnel as armed "marshals", subject to school district approval and special training.

"The question I have and it was in the paper regarding my Sheriff's statement, and so, I'd like you to clarify that if you would".

The state's Republican majority agreed to accept an amendment requiring deputized school officials to undergo 12 hours of diversity training in addition to the 132 hours of firearms training to be certified to carry a weapon in the school.
