Florida Teachers Can Be "Good Guy With A Gun" Under New Bill Allowing Them To Pack Heat

Florida's House of Representatives passed a bill on Wednesday allowing full-time teachers to carry guns in the classroom - expanding on a program launched in the wake of the deadly Parkland high school shooting in February, 2018

The bill, passed by a vote of 65 to 47 after two days of debate in which Republicans thwarted Democratic legislators' attempts to amend, stall or kill the measure. It was approved by Florida's Senate last week by a vote of 22 to 17, and now heads to the desk of Republican Governor Ron DeSantis who is expected to sign it into law, according to Reuters.

Teachers who complete a 144-hour training course as part of the voluntary guardian program will be allowed to carry.
