Now that it passed Senate and the House, the Left is crying devilish murder and announcing impending gloom and doom. The Usual Suspects School Boards already are exercising the privilege of not allowing the program in their counties as we know they would do. That was not unexpected.
And also (and sadly) not unexpected is the litany from some Gun Owners, specially the No Compromise© and Chest Thumpers™ putting down the bill for whatever picky motive they have. No bill is ever perfect and by looking for fleas they are missing the big dog: The passing of this bill was a thunderous victory that I do believe will have an effect outside Florida too.
A bad law, passed on the heat of a School shooting with the support of Bloomberg, his minions, the Media and every idiot in the Left was challenged and again Bloomberg, his minions, the Media and every idiot in the Left came out in full force to defend it.
And they lost.
This is a huge slap in the face for Gun Control, specially knowing how much money was invested (or given away for free in Fake News) in the last 14 months. From the creation of new Gun Control “Heroes/survivors” that never were to a massive march in DC to their version of a Children’s Crusade on buses doing voter registration. It all went for naught.
We won this round. Turn off the Negative Nancy switch and enjoy it.

It’s kind of like the WWI Brit generals who thought the full on frontal assault & accompanying Calvary charge into the rear was the only way to properly fight a war.
You’re right on Miguel. I think as more schools adopt the “teacher carry” position, and the general public gets used to the common sense behind it, it will be accepted as the best answer to school shootings. Our county (Lee) is against it for now, but I have hopes they will come around in the near future.
I haven’t heard of a school board yet that is going to allow it.
Lake, Orange, Flagler, Seminole, Osceola, Marion
We are a long way from protecting kids.
But we ARE one step closer to protecting kids- the legal groundwork has been laid.
It’s far easier to change state law than national law, and it’s easier to change county law over state law.
General national acceptance of Shall Issue CCW took a lot of years (and the fight continues), mainly for the fact that CCW does not automatically equal Blood In Da Streetz- and note that it was Shall Issue that has led to Constitutional Carry in most of the states that have it.
Give the normal outrage a chance to blow over, and we’ll see counties quietly make positive changes.
