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


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.
