Under caveats to the "guardian" program, teachers who "exclusively perform classroom duties as classroom teachers" won't be allowed to carry guns on campus, unless they have military or law enforcement experience or if they teach a Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program.

The indictment returned by a grand jury in Fort Lauderdale also charges the 19-year-old with 17 counts of attempted murder for the Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in which 17 people died and more than a dozen others were wounded.

The lawsuit came just hours after Gov. Scott, a Republican, signed the compromise bill Friday afternoon. Thanks in part to decades of aggressive lobbying by the National Rifle Association, the state is seen as a laboratory for pro-gun regulations, such as the "stand your ground" laws and lax concealed-carry rules.

Students from local schools have been following up on the bill calling it "a baby step".

If the bill is not vetoed by Florida Governor Rick Scott, it would represent a win for survivors, who, in recent weeks, have mobilized and applied pressure on lawmakers to effect change. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said the same. "I believe he'll sign it today".

North Korea offers halt to ICBM program, Chosun says
USA media reports say South Korea and the US will kick off their annual joint military drills at the end of this month. The State Department's roster of senior diplomats dealing with and experienced on North Korea is seriously depleted.

Scott told reporters he would "review the bill line by line" and consult with victims' families before deciding his position. Now, this bill passed the Florida Legislature with bipartisan support. In Florida, however, an 18-year-old can legally buy rifles, with no waiting period.

President Donald Trump has voiced support for arming teachers as a deterrent to school gun violence, though many parents, law enforcement officials and policymakers in both parties reject the idea.

In schools, the measure also creates new mental health programs and establishes an anonymous tip line for reporting threats. Such protocols are near-universal among US law enforcement agencies.

Another key provision would raise the minimum age for all gun purchases in the state to 21.

Swift action in the Republican-controlled statehouse, where the National Rifle Association (NRA) has long held sway, signalled a possible turning point in the national debate between gun control advocates and proponents of firearms rights enshrined in the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. Florida's law unconstitutionally broadens those limits, the NRA says. Instead, he wanted lawmakers to adopt his own $500 million proposal to put at least one law enforcement officer in every school.

The bill automatically becomes law within 15 days unless the governor vetoes it.

While the bill won't please all sides, Scott said he was proud of the collaborative process that occurred to make it happen.

"The bill is far too comprehensive for the governor to let a few provisions prevent the positive changes this bill embodies", Galvano said.

The Legislature did at the last minute agree to pass a bill created to battle the state's opioid epidemic. The measure also would ban the sale of "bump stocks", which allow semi-automatic rifles to mimic fully automatic weapons.

Andrew Pollack, who lost his daughter Meadow in the massacre, said: "More needs to be done, and it's important for the country to be united in the same way the 17 families united in support of this bill".

One officer dead, two others injured in Missouri
According to Missouri State Highway patrol, officers were responding to a call at a residence when the shooting took place. In August, Officer Gary Michael was killed during a traffic stop. "He was just one of those kind of guys", Oberkrom said.

"I'm going to take the time and I'm going to read the bill and I'm going to talk to families", said Scott, who wouldn't say whether he'll sign it.
