Just weeks after 17 people (consisting of both students and staff) lost their lives to a gunman in Parkland, Florida, the state’s Senate made the decision to reject a proposal to ban assault weapons.

Instead, the Florida Senate took a vote to issue a measure that will arm specific teachers at the school.

The vote came in at 20 – 17 against the ban on assault weapons. Only two Republicans made the decision to join all 15 of the Florida Senate’s Democrats in support of the proposal.

The full bill is known as the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act. The expectation is that the bill will pass the Florida Senate on Monday, before heading to the Florida House.

The state Senate also made a rejection of an amendment that would remove a provision to train and arm specific teachers.

Upon the Senate’s rejection of the assault weapon ban, Stoneman Douglas students sent angry tweets about the state’s refusal of the bill.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act will raise the minimum age to purchase a rifle to 21 (it was previously 18). It will also ban the use, sale, and possession of bump stocks.

Furthermore, the Safety Act includes $400 million funding for addressing mental health issues in schools.
