The panel investigating the Florida high school massacre recommended Wednesday that teachers who volunteer and undergo extensive background checks and training be allowed to carry concealed guns on campus to stop future shootings.
The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission voted 13-1 to recommend the Legislature allow the arming of teachers, saying it’s not enough to have one or two police officers or armed guards on campus.
MSD Public Safety Commission Recommends Arming Teachers
Unless the newly elected governor makes it a personal thing and shames the hell out of the Legislature, I expect them to do nothing about this due to the pressure of the Gun Control groups and the Teacher’s Union. The other issue would be that the Legislators that still remain would have to eat crow and admit they were wrong in not only passing a rushed law, but caving to the Union and Gun Control and they would probably rather have more kids die than appear stupider and let us not forget that the new senate president gleefully admitted cashing in $200,000 from Bloomberg.
Again, Governor-Elect DeSantis would have to make it a personal mission and he could begin by suspending the Broward County School Board or at least send people from the Department of Education to take over the functions of the idiots that created and maintained the system that allowed Cruz to kill. If heads do not roll, the bad behavior is basically rewarded and significant changes will not be enacted. In fact, the school boards are still trying to kill the Guardian program (School personnel except teachers that could be trained and armed) and have the money allocated to it (Not quite remember, but close to $50 million) to be transferred to them.
And that brings one important subject: money. The Legislature set aside close to half a billion dollars with SB7026. This money is to cover from hardening schools to improving the Mental records reporting to Law Enforcement and the Guardian Program. In order to actually keep the waste to a minimum and see that true safety gets implemented (somewhat) not one single cent should go through the hands of any school board in the State of Florida. I am far from a Central Government type, but after finding out that lying and presenting false reports about crime in their districts by too many school boards across Florida, there is no way that we can trust them with money entitled to keep the kids safe. If it means the Department of education gets to become bigger, so be it. and please, make sure they do not hire anybody who has served in any school board for the past decade. I would not mind hiring former LEOs and Veterans to harden our schools.
That’ll be all for now.

Maybe survivors of previous school shootings? Yeah, some might be like Whatsername and Whosit, but others might channel their “inner JDL”, and be all steadfastly “Never Again!”
Considering how badly EVERY county agency that could have prevented the Parkland shooting screwed up what they were supposed to do, the state ought to go take over everything in Broward country. Assuming there are competent people in the state to do it.
Paging Mad Dog Mattis?

Yeah. Just repeal the “gun free zone” federal laws.
They have not stopped any crime, but have encouraged all of the mass shooters. When the delusional killer is aware enough to know where guns are “not allowed”, the killer chooses that area.
