In Florida, the House Appropriations Committee has voted to create a statewide program to spend $67 million to arm teachers in classrooms, despite the vocal opposition of the survivors of the February 14 mass shooting in Parkland, Florida. This same panel voted Tuesday against an assault weapons ban. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students are returning to classes today, exactly two weeks after a former student entered the school armed with an AR-15 and killed 17 people. And in breaking news this morning, Dick’s Sporting Goods, one of the nation’s largest sports retailers, says it will immediately stop selling all assault-style rifles in its stores.
