FDP Chair on Advancement of Bill That Would Arm Teachers

Posted

FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo responds to SPB 7030, which would arm teachers, passing its first committee vote:

"Last year, Floridians made it clear that they overwhelming oppose the arming of teachers. It is beyond comprehension that one year later Republicans are forcing us to have this same discussion over again. This bill is dangerous and a threat to our students and teachers. As we approach the one-year anniversary of the Parkland shooting, it is shameful that instead of honoring the victims Republicans are trying to put more guns in our schools."
