Florida lawmakers pass bill allowing armed teachers in classrooms

Florida students say Devos wouldn't meet will them

Florida’s lawmakers narrowly passed a controversial gun reform bill late on Wednesday that would allow armed teachers in the state’s classrooms, three weeks to the day after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school massacre in which 17 people were killed.

The new legislation, which must now be approved by the Florida governor, Rick Scott, also raises the age at which weapons can be purchased to 21 and provides extra money for school security and mental health support.

The package was backed by families of the Parkland victims, but strongly opposed by many Democrats, who failed to block its passage in a 67-50 vote.

Gun show bans AR-15s, rifle auctions in the wake of Las Vegas and Florida shootings

AR-15 removed from Illinois gun show.Following shooting tragedies in Las Vegas and Parkland, Florida, one gun show scheduled for this weekend in Illinois has taken the unusual step of banning the sale of bump stocks and AR-15 rifles, the kind used in both of those shootings, and will no longer be raffling off rifles, organizers said.

The Pioneer Valley Sportsman's Association (PVSA) has been hosting seven gun shows a year at the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton for the past 40 years.

In the weeks following the Las Vegas music festival shooting in October that left 58 people dead, fairground management began to hear concerns from members of the community about the gun show being held in their backyards, Jim McGuire, president of the DuPage County Fair Association, told ABC News.
