Florida Gov. Scott breaks with Trump over proposal to arm teachers

Share:

Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Friday rejected calls to arm teachers with guns to prevent school massacres. The stance breaks with a proposal put forth by the president after a gunman killed 17 people with an AR-15 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, last week.

Scott, a Republican, unveiled a plan to boost school security that would bar “violent or mentally ill” people from purchasing weapons, prohibit persons under the age of 21 from buying guns, and outlaw so-called bump stocks that make it possible for semi-automatic weapons to fire faster. Those policies are in contrast to positions taken by the NRA.
