The school guardian bill would allow those teachers to defend themselves and students in the event of a school shooting.
One democratic house representative says it’s unclear if parents or students would even know which teachers had guns.
Florida Bill to Let Teachers Carry Firearms Could Soon Be Reality
I realized yesterday that they cannot make that information available as it is against the law. One of the requirements for anybody becoming a Guardian is that they get a Concealed Weapons License. Unless something happens and the police is involved, who has a CWL is confidential in the State of Florida. There is a bill which has great probability to become law that will make the records of those applying via the Tax Collectors remain confidential (it was issued with a sunset proviso originally) with ample support from both sides, so I doubt pretty much any politician would like to open that can of worms that would be to open CWL records to the Sunshine Law.
One thought on “Arming Teachers: A detail I had not thought about it.”
Certainly a feature and not a bug. Perpetrators not knowing who might be armed is one of the most important features of concealed carry.
