Florida Legislative Panel Approves Measure To Arm Teachers

The Miami Herald (3/28, McGrory) reports that the Florida House's K-12 education subcommittee has voted 10-3 in support of a "controversial bill, which would allow principals to choose certain teachers and school employees to carry concealed weapons on campus. Schools opting against an armed employee would be required to hire a separate safety officer." The Herald notes that the measure "has met resistance from parent groups, local school boards and the state teachers' union, who adamantly oppose the idea of allowing guns on school property."
