DEMAND A SAFER FLORIDA! TAKE ACTION ON GUN SAFETY
Our Teachers don’t want to be armed. Stop SB 7030!
We need your help now! SB 7030 is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Tuesday, April, April 23rd.
The Senate has rejected Amendments to the bill that would have removed the provision to arm teachers. Under the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program signed into law last year, “individuals who exclusively perform classroom duties as classroom teachers” are currently exempt from the program. SB 7030 will repeal that provision and set up scenarios where our children could be exposed to guns in the classroom, cafeteria, gym, and playground.
Our teachers and administrators have stated that they do not want to be armed. Our students have stated that they do not want their teachers to be armed. The only people who should have access to firearms on campus are highly-trained law enforcement officers.
What can you do?

Vote No on Senate Bill 7030.
Teachers are not law enforcement. They do not possess the tactical training required to respond to an active shooter. Law enforcement officers go through training year-round. It is unreasonable to expect a teacher to be able to act as law enforcement.
Instead of arming teachers, we should be providing schools with the tools they need to prevent a school shooting in the first place.
