Bill to Arm Florida Teachers Postponed

The bill that would allow teachers to be armed in Florida has been postponed.

Student protesters were en-route to Tallahassee this afternoon when the the announcement was made.

Florida lawmakers were set to discuss arming teachers while members of the House were suppose to debate expanding the guardian program.

The MSD public safety commission changed their stance on arming teachers saying, "it's only a matter of time before the next school shooter strikes."

Trevor Wild with March For Our Lives said, "allowing teachers to carry could wreak even more havoc in a worst case scenario."

Even with the postponement, a rally is planned for 4 p.m. at the Capitol, said Serena Rodrigues, one the organizers. Students will also try to meet with state senators to voice their concerns, she said.
