Shooting back when the offender enters the classroom. After the school massacre at Parkland, Donald Trump suggested that teachers should be allowed to arm themselves. Florida is now implementing the law.

In the US state of Florida, teachers in the classroom will be allowed to carry firearms in the future.

The controversial law passed on Wednesday the House of Representatives of the southern state, still has to be signed by the governor Ron DeSantis, which is considered formal.

Teachers have to complete a total of 144 hours of training if they want to carry a weapon at school.

The measure is designed to prevent school massacres such as those in Parkland in February 2018, in which a former student had shot 17 people.

Proponents of the gun permit argue that armed teachers could stop an attacker faster than the police. US president Donald Trump after the Parkland massacre, had been in favor of arming teachers.

Critics argue that more weapons would not lead to more security. They fear accidents involving firearms in schools and are opposed to teachers being effectively assigned to police duties.

In addition, they warn that armed teachers could be mistaken for the attacker and could be shot by the police in the event of an attack.
