The proposal would have to be approved by the state legislature
The 15-member commission who investigated the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School released a report Wednesday.
Unanimously approved, the 446-page report contained several recommendations, among which was arming teachers who volunteer to undergo training to carry a weapon.
The report was also critical of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office whose many missteps before, during, and after the shooting have been thoroughly documented.
From West Palm Beach local news:
The commission investigating the Florida high school massacre has turned in its recommendation that teachers who volunteer and undergo training be allowed to carry guns.
The 15-member Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission on Wednesday unanimously approved the 446-page report containing that proposal and other recommendations.
It’s now in the hands of Gov. Rick Scott, Governor-elect Ron DeSantis and the Legislature.
The report details what is believed to have happened before, during, and after the Feb. 14 shooting attack that left 17 dead and 17 wounded.
The Legislature would have to approve the proposal to allow teachers to carry guns. It’s opposed by the teachers union and the PTA.
The report is highly critical of the Broward Sheriff’s Office, which recently changed its policy in the wake of the shooting.
The MSD Commission previously said the Broward Sheriff’s Office’s active shooter policy contributed to the massacre.
