"In essence, it was neglect of duty. We lost 17 people," Tony said.

A Florida state commission investigating the February shooting at a Parkland, Fla., high school that left 17 people dead recommended on Wednesday that teachers who undergo proper training be allowed to carry firearms at schools.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that members of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission voted 13-1 to recommend the state legislature pass the proposal. The recommendation calls for teachers who would be armed to undergo a background check and proper training.

Broward County sheriff's deputies took a largely symbolic vote of no confidence against embattled Sheriff Scott Israel, but their leader says he plans to press the issue with Florida Gov. Rick Scott and ask him to reconsider the sheriff's position.

The Broward Sheriff's Office Deputies Association vote was 534-94, with union President Jeff Bell vowing to ask Scott to consider removing Israel and praising the "great courage" of members who voted "under threat of retaliation and reprisal."

Looks like the deputies are prepared to throw the sheriff under the bus.

The Broward County School Board has decided not to take part in the state's newly established school guardian program, which allows certain school employees to carry weapons on the job.
The school board said the money allotted for the guardian program would be redirected toward hiring more school resource officers.
So, more people to cower behind cars instead of people inside the building that could actually defend students?
