Florida teachers can arm themselves under new gun bill

Florida teachers can arm themselves under new gun bill

Florida’s legislature on Wednesday passed a bill allowing teachers to carry guns in the classroom. Governor Ron DeSantis is expected to sign the bill into law, enabling school districts wishing to take part in the voluntary Guardian program to arm those teachers who pass a 144-hour training course.

144 hours of training is actually a lot. i think this is a great idea. it's not like it's mandatory

Here’s a thought: while one could argue this being a good thing (and it very well could be advantageous in the thick of it), but what if when in “the thick of it” the civilian, common day teacher gets traumatized. Never before in the line of fire w/ just a handful of lessons and safety classes under one’s belt does not give a person the absolute guts to fight, defend, go on the offensive and kill another person. Just saying, PTSD is on the way. Here’s to those who make a difference. Personally, I’d just hire on cops/install surveillance equipment/implement an alternative.
