The bill would ban any staff to carry guns except for school resource officers, law enforcement or security guards.

State Sen. Todd Kaminsky plans to introduce a bill that would ban teachers from carrying guns in schools.

The proposal follows President Donald Trump’s call to arm teachers in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida, last month.

Kaminsky (D-Long Beach) co-sponsored the bill with state Sen. John Brooks (D-Seaford), which would ban any staff to carry guns except for school resource officers, law enforcement or security guards. He plans to introduce the proposal to the State Senate on Monday.
