Florida Legislature Passes Bill Restricting Guns, Arming Teachers
Over the objections of some state Democrats and the NRA, Florida lawmakers passed a bill that puts millions of dollars toward arming teachers, but also imposes a three-day waiting period and a minimum age of 21 to buy certain weapons. The bill, backed by the families of Marjory Stoneman Douglas victims, does not ban assault rifles. It’s unclear whether Gov. Rick Scott, who has opposed arming educators, will sign it. Meanwhile, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos visited the Parkland school, but students say she refused to meet with them.
