Fla. governor signs school safety bill in wake of Parkland shooting

"If there are school personnel that want to go to the training to help shield the students and protect them, they should have the opportunity", Latvala said.

The bill would create a programme allowing local sheriffs to deputise school staff as volunteer armed "guardians", subject to special training, mental health and drug screening and a license to carry a concealed weapon.

Family members of those killed at a Florida high school are being asked to meet Gov. Rick Scott as he considers whether he'll sign a sweeping gun and school safety bill.

In this March 7, 2012 file photo, Illinois gun owners and supporters file out National Rifle Association applications while participating in an Illinois Gun Owners Lobby Day convention before marching to the Illinois state Capitol in Springfield, Ill.

Student activists from the school where the shooting took place followed the bill's track closely and called it "a baby step".

The legislature of the USA state of Florida voted on Wednesday to pass the "Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act", a gun control bill would place some limits to gun access and allow some teachers or school employees to be armed.

Nelson mocked Scott as lacking "guts" for skipping an emotionally charged town hall forum attended by survivors of the shooting, and criticized Scott over the incentives Florida has offered to gun manufacturers. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said the same. Someone who wants to do the students harm would have easy access to them, Mosier said.

The national anthem's messages have recently been exposed as racist, with several high schools banning it entirely, and I believe its messages of freedom are just as outdated. And Scott, a Republican and NRA member, did that in an election year when he is expected to announce is candidacy for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Bill Nelson. Florida's teachers' union and the National Rifle Association are opposed.

Republican Rep. Jay Fant, who is running for attorney general, said raising the minimum age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21 was unconstitutional, and he voted no.

President Donald Trump has voiced support for arming teachers as a deterrent to school gun violence, though many parents, law enforcement officials and policymakers in both parties reject the idea.

As dozens of law enforcement officers descended onto the high school, some could not communicate amongst each other. The new law strips law-abiding adults aged 18-20 of their Second Amendment right to self-protection and imposes unnecessary delays on all firearm purchases. Florida's law unconstitutionally broadens those limits, the NRA says.

Rick Scott has signed legislation tightening gun restrictions in the state.

The bill automatically becomes law within 15 days unless the governor vetoes it.

SHAPIRO: We heard Governor Scott there talking about the fact that some people are not happy about this bill. The Florida legislature blocked that proposal last month. The measure also would ban the sale of "bump stocks", which allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic fully automatic weapons.

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow died, called the new law "a start for us".

The governor said he signed the legislation to make schools safer. I'm on a mission to ensure that I am the last dad to ever read a statement of this kind.

The worlds of those who knew those 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have been shattered and join a large contingent of shooting victims. Standing mute maintains our only position: "he (Cruz) did it and he will plead guilty immediately to 34 consecutive life sentences without parole".
