Florida gun control: New bill proposes to arm teachers

In response to Florida school shooting last month, the state's Senate is considering a bill that would allow teachers to carry guns at school, raise the age restriction to buy a rifle, and create a three-day waiting period for firearms purchases.

    Politicians in the US state of Florida are one step closer to new gun legislation following the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland that killed 17 people.

    A proposed bill would place new restrictions on the sale of assault rifles, and allow some teachers to be armed.

    However, critics argue it does not go far enough.
