Governor Scott announcing

Rick Scott is scheduled to hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon to highlight his action plan in the wake of the deadly high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, earlier this month.

Rick Scott announced on Tuesday a $500 million plan that will bring "massive changes" to school safety.

"More law enforcement. A significant law enforcement in a lot of our schools, mental health counselors at our schools, hardening in all of our schools", explained Gov. Scott. Front-line police officers see the risks and sometimes tragic results of an inadequate system, and the show of support among law enforcement at Scotts event Wednesday speaks to their desire for reform, Gualtieri said.

"I like seeing the kids going to school, like seeing kids alive and moving on with their lives, getting back to learning", Andrew Pollack said.

Around $450 million will be used to keep students safe by adding bullet proof windows, steel doors and metal detectors.

Williams said his staff will be focused on keeping weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill and adding officers or professional security at every public school.

Pass a "red flag law" that would be meant to prevent the mentally ill and domestic abusers from possessing or purchasing a gun. "What is more, I think it's important to establish a program so that we can enlist the help of retired military and law enforcement personnel to ensure that our students are safe while they learn".

When asked if the state would have to shift funding to implement his plan, Scott said the state is operating on a surplus.

"We have got to change". There, 49 people were killed.

Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Republican candidate for governor, finally weighs in on the gun debate and offers a nuanced backing of arming teachers while coming out against gun restrictions. Jose Oliva, R, as calling teachers with guns "the last line of defense". "Im more in favor of having trained law enforcement at the school than I am putting another task on school teachers".

It would also require anyone in the state wanting to purchase a firearm to be 21 or older and would ban the purchasing and selling of bump stocks, according to WZZM.

Scott said the proposed plan would not include arming teachers.

"Florida's never going to be the same", Scott said Wednesday.
