“A first-of-its-kind “school marshal” program — which would allow teachers to carry guns on campus — moved one step closer to becoming a reality on Tuesday as Florida legislators approved the idea for the second day in a row.
“The last line of defense would be a highly trained person in the school,” Republican state Rep. Jose Oliva told the Miami Herald following a House committee vote.
“What it does is create a level of preparedness that we should have in the event a threat level rises and a superintendent decides that I think now maybe we would like to have this program,” he said.
The state’s House Appropriations Committee voted 23-6 to approve a bill that would allow the “school marshal” program to be implemented — should superintendents and the school board approve and deem it necessary.”*
