Or formerly known as CS/SB 7030: School Safety and Security.
I do like the rebranding. “What do you mean the Democrats do not want to implement the recommendations of the commission?”
Implementation of Legislative Recommendations of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission; Requiring a sheriff to establish a school guardian program or contract with another sheriff’s office that has established a program under a certain condition; requiring the Office of Safe Schools to annually provide training for specified personnel; requiring that a school safety specialist be a school administrator employed by the school district or a law enforcement officer employed by the sheriff’s office located in the school district; requiring the Florida Safe Schools Assessment Tool (FSSAT) to be the primary site security assessment tool for school districts; modifying the required use of funds in the safe schools allocation, etc.
So it seems on its way to the full Floor and the bad amendment are once again being proposed: No lifting the ban on volunteer teachers to carry, notify parents what classes have armed teachers, etc. But now they are adding two new ones. The first one is what I call a “Shame Report” which is that the School Board is obligated to provide a yearly report of how many School Guardians are there and how many screw up and how that would require removal from the program. If this sounds familiar to you, it is because it is very similar to what was done to the Concealed Weapons License law when it was being discussed thirty and some years ago. The opponents were saying “We are gonna prove that this gun permit scheme is dangerous and the state has to provide the statistics so we can shut it down later.” That not only did not come to pass, but we now know it backfired like a mother. It has shown consistently that Concealed Carriers are more Law Abiding than the average Floridian and we get to boast our 2 million licenses in a few months.
The second amendment is possibly the dumbest.
Any individual serving as a school guardian may not use
a deadly weapon or firearm in the scope of his or her duties.
He represents parts of the Florida keys, apparently not the smart ones. “There is an active shooter in school! Quick, deploy the condiment in spray!”
Never mind. I’ll try to keep you guys and gals informed. I need coffee.

Wow, he wants to enforce “gun as talisman against evil”?
“Sure, you can volunteer to carry a firearm to protect our schools, but only symbolically; don’t you dare use it to protect our schools!”
Yep. Need more coffee.
So…policemen can’t use their pistols? Secret Servicemen can’t use their MP5s? Navy can’t launch their missiles?
….. how about Legislators can’t speak, write, text, or type about anything on any occasion?
Yep. Sounds about right.
Actually, that last suggestion has some serious merit!
Indeed: Were I in the legislature, I’d amend Sen Rodriguez’ amendment, to read, “Any legislative initiative that cannot be fully explained by silent interpretive dance, shall be held to be unenforceable.”
