(TIME) — Florida lawmakers just approved a bill allowing more teachers to carry guns in schools.
Lawmakers passed a new bill allowing teachers to carry guns in school, despite concerns it will lead to more accidental shootings.
The Republican-led House voted 65-47 on Wednesday to send the bill to GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is expected to sign it. The measure expands an existing school “guardian” program to allow any teacher to volunteer to carry a weapon if their local school district approves.
