Despite 57% of Florida Voter being opposed to it, The Florida Senate decide to APPROVE GUNS IN SCHOOL.
The bill is now expected to sail through the Republican-controlled House, and Gov. Ron DeSantis has already signaled his support.
Just a few days ago, An officer pepper-spray, punched, and slammed into the ground two students at J.P. Taravella High school. Police don't need guns to cause harm; putting guns in their hand and the hands of teachers would only make a situation more deadly.
A 2005 University of Colorado study replicating an experiment that had been conducted by other researchers found that forcing subjects to reacting to a split-second to potentially armed person meant participants would move to shoot armed black individuals faster and more often than armed whites and take more time to determine to not shoot an unarmed black person than an unarmed white person.
