Lauren Book makes an impassioned plea for passage of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Student Safety Act during the session at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee, Fla., Monday March 5, 2018.

If the bill is approved by the Senate it will head to the House for a vote before heading to Gov. Rick Scott's desk.

"I'd like to see the governor veto that but I highly doubt that because he is an NRA supported coward", Hogg stated. Scott also opposes arming teachers.

The Senate already revised the program so that most classroom teachers would be exempt, leaving coaches, librarians and other school personnel to participate in the optional Aaron Feis Guardian Program. Other staff would still qualify.

The Florida Legislature's is voting this week on what's being described as a school safety bill. The program, with each school facility in the state required to have at least one armed guard, law enforcement officer, or guardian on campus, would train volunteer faculty in a program administered by local sheriffs. He is widely expected to run for a United States Senate seat later this year, and knows he will have to appeal to voters beyond his own party in a race against the incumbent Democrat, Bill Nelson.

Momentum has stalled for a bill that would have allowed human trafficking victims to sue hotels that do not take action and train their employees to prevent such atrocities. It was not clear whether or how the House might amend the bill.

"The whole goal is to try to limit the amount of individuals that can carry guns in the classroom", said Sen. Those groups favored tighter gun restrictions including banning assault weapons like the AR-15, which authorities say former Douglas High student Nikolas Cruz, 19, used in the Valentine's Day killings.

The $400 million bill increases the minimum age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21, and requires a three-day waiting period for most gun sales. "He brought this up during his meetings with Legislators today".

It is February 14, and the students of Parkland school Marjory Stoneman Douglas High are reeling.

State lawmakers are struggling to agree on a legislative response to the Parkland shooting.

OR has enacted what its governor calls America's first new gun law since a school shooting in Florida prompted a national push for tougher restrictions.

Although the measure excludes most teachers, the bill does allow for teachers who are Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps educators, current military and law enforcement members to opt in.

"These are the baby steps we need!"
