County of Parkland Massacre Votes for Armed Guards in All Schools

The horrific Valentines Day massacre at Majority Stoneman Douglas high school in Parkland County sparked a gun control movement among the student body. Out of it emerged the “March for Our Lives,” a highly organized movement aided in large part by the media and some elected officials.

While there was an initial rise in support for gun control following the shooting, it’s since faded. No meaningful Federal legislation passed whatsoever, though Florida Governor Rick Scott did sign legislation that raised the age to purchase a firearm to 21, introduced a three-day waiting period on all gun sales, and a ban on bump stocks. The same bill also increased funding for the training and arming of school staff. None of the semi-automatic weapons (particularly so-called “assault weapons”) that activists call to have banned were affected.
