    Thumbs up New Florida law now in effect.

    I hope all counties here in Florida decide to go with this. In fact, I wish all States would adopt this law.

    And I pray to God that no teacher ever has a negligent discharge.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    Teachers will generally follow the liberal democrat NEA antigun platform.

    I guess I hope they get some training and are responsible. Personally they should be allowed to protect themselves. Of course I think the HR Manager atwork should be allowed to protect himself.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.

    Since Florida is a "Shall Issue" state, I feel it should have been left up to the individual teachers instead on the "District Bureaucracy".

    If they're willing to get the training and take a stand they should be allowed to. Especially in rural counties where LE response times could be as high as 30-45 minutes.

    I want to be enthusiastic about this, but frankly I just can't see it ending well.

    I mean, imagine that a teacher should actually have to use their firearm in self-defense against some wingnut kid who just saw the new Joker movie and decides he's gonna go shoot up the school. How do you suppose the media will spin it, hm? How do you suppose parents will react? They'll probably try to turn the teacher into public enemy number one, and even if they don't succeed, you know that they'll probably gain enough traction to get the law revoked.

    I dunno, hopefully I'm just being overly cynical and folks have finally gotten fed up with psycho kids who have absolutely no chance of ever amounting to anything because they voluntarily throw their own futures away the moment they decide to commit mass murder, won't shed a single tear for them, and will hold a parade for the teacher who saved all the school children by putting his/her life at risk to defend them from a complete waste of skin, complete with glowing news reports of their selfless heroism, followed by a feature film starring Liam Neeson based on the story. That's what I'd love to see.

    Read the article! Here is a quote from the article concerning necessary training and other conditions teachers in the program have to go through to qualify for the program.....

    "The training is 140 hours on a shooting-range, an extensive background check, drug screening, and an exam by a doctor to certify mental fitness. It’s all part of the state’s Guardian Program".

    I would probably wager that the vast majority of people on this forum do not have anywhere near 140 hours of formal firearm instruction.

    This is only a partially good thing. I do not agree with the invasive medical things (see article) they force them into in order to be allowed to carry in the "special building" known as a school. Criminals do not have to do the same, and they carry where ever they want to.

    140 hrs etc, etc and some will be better than police. If schools feel they need armed guards then this could be a discount and actually be a better result. Still it is probably just a lot of posturing with little results. Maybe just telling the bad guys it isn't a safe zone helps. But the really bad guys plan on death anyway. We will see, the leftist districts have already made themselves targets when they could have just been silent. But once again truth and results dont matter.

    Kind of liken the bear story, I don't have to be faster than the bear...just you.

    Ohio allows this, and quite a few teachers I know got the training and are packing.
