WASHINGTON – Florida Gov. Rick Scott Sunday rejected a plan pitched by President Trump to arm certain teachers with guns as a solution to stop mass shootings.

“I disagree with him,” Scott, a Republican, told Fox News Sunday. “I believe you’ve got to focus on the people that are well-trained in law enforcement, that are trained to do this. I want to make sure we have significant law enforcement presence (at schools) on top of hardening the schools with metal detectors and bullet proof glass, better perimeter fencing.”

“I want our teachers to teach and our law enforcement officers to be able to protect the students. I want each group to focus on what they are good at.”

So Scott is in favor of putting kids in prisons? Wow, that’s clever.

People like Scott Israel and Scot Peterson?

Whatever

As long as parents accept their children being locked into classrooms and closets while the police wait for the shooting to stop

The governor still wants to put the children's safety in the hands of incompetent stooges like Broward county sheriff Israel? That didn't work out so good last week. How about addressing Obama’s policy of keeping student arrests down to receive federal grant money? That was a major contributor to this shooting.

Every individual has a God given right to self defense. Teachers and school workers with CCW should be allowed to defend themselves and indirectly those about them.

I absolutely despise punks like scott who believe your only options when faced with a mass murderer are to run, hide, or get in his face.

All you FReepers demanding that Scott fire Israel...ain’t gonna happen. All Scott is doing is the usual, despicable Republican song and dance trying to appeal all sides. Just a total cuck.

Extremely disappointed in Scott.
Had high hopes for him beating Nelson.
He cannot even muster enough candor to condemn Sheriff Israel and the cowardly deputies in Broward County.

I guess the fawning look upon Low Energy says it all.

At this point, I wish DeSantis would redirect his efforts at running for the Senate.
Perhaps, Pam Bondi might be the best bet to succeed Scott in Tallahassee.

Only President Trump is bold enough to offer pragmatic solutions to protect schoolchildren.

He just killed his chance to become Senator and flip that seat.

Why is it EVERYONE mis represents what was said. Trump said that people who were comfortable with carrying should be allowed to carry.

He is not talking about arming the meek little kindergarten teacher. Although I would have thought the teacher at Sandyhook would have appreciated the opportunity.

Pull his security detail. If the students aren’t important enough to protect...he isn’t.

Gun free zone + closed campus + useless law enforcement + leftist politicians + unarmed teachers and students = shooting fish in a barrel for deranged crazy lunatics looking to get their 15 minutes on CNN.

He waited for trump to win the FL primary before endorsing him.

If Gov. Scott is serious he must remove the sheriff in Broward Co.
