Governor Ron DeSantis signed SB-7030 within hours after receiving it. SB-7030 contains the language that authorizes local school boards to allow classroom teachers to go through training and carry firearms on school campuses.

News reports suggested that “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America” and another Bloomberg group, “Students Demand Action for Gun Sense in America,” were apparently pushing on Governor DeSantis to veto SB-7070 — the wrong bill.

According to News Service Florida, the “Demand” groups delivered a stack of signatures to the Governor’s office urging the Governor to veto a bill that would arm classroom teachers. It further reported that a DeSantis employee was asked by the group to tell the Governor to veto SB-7070 because it expanded the “guardian” program. THAT’S THE WRONG BILL!

Not only is their anti-gun reasoning flawed, their legislative information is wrong. SB-7070 is the K-12 Education Bill.

We are pleased that Governor DeSantis signed SB-7030.

When seconds matter, law enforcement is often minutes away. That’s why the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Commission, Chaired by Sheriff Bob Gualtiere, recommended to the legislature that they pass legislation to allow classroom teachers to be armed.

BACKGROUND:

SB-7030 Implementation of Legislative Recommendations of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission – Requires sheriffs to establish a school guardian program; requires the Office of Safe Schools to annually provide training for specified personnel teachers; requires district school boards and school district superintendents to partner with security agencies to establish or assign safe-school officers; revises requirements for school district zero-tolerance policies; provides standards and training for classroom teachers who choose to go through training in order to be armed at school.

The vote in the House was 65 – 47 with five (5) Republicans voting AGAINST the bill. The five are all newly elected freshmen. They are: Vance Aloupis (R-Miami), Mike Beltran (R-Valrico), Mike Caruso (R-Boca Raton), Chip LaMarca (R-Lighthouse Point) and David Smith (R-Winter Springs).

The Senate vote was 22-17 with Sen. Anitere Flores voting against it (along with the Democrats).

  1. It’s about time. They are truly the first responders. They will give their lives now to protect the kids why not let them be armed to stop the threat before it gets bad.
    My wife’s a principal and she would carry in a heartbeat.

  2. It is the left who created these “no gun zones” (kill zones) and must be proud of them because they fight every effort to eliminate the designation. They fight against training and arming teachers because that would create safe zones where students actually are safe.
    Even “real” Democrats are for the second amendment.

  3. Glad somebody finally had the balls to use their brains and do what should have been done when all the school “problems” started.This should be done all over the country if the parents,teachers,and everyone else in the community really want to help stop trouble before it starts!I believe anyone who has a CCW should be able to carry on school grounds.Younever know,they just might be in the right place at the right time to help stop a threat and not hiding outside like a coward like one officer did at one of the shootings did.

  4. When you look at the training requirements of the law, only the most dedicated will do this. These are the types I want teaching and protecting kids.
