Following the devastating mass shooting in Florida an Alabama lawmaker is looking to pass a bill to “arm” teachers in his state. 

AL.com reports Republican Representative Will Ainsworth is set to sponsor a bill to allow some public school teachers and administrators to receive firearms training. The bill would also authorize administrators and teachers to carry concealed weapons during the school day. 

Ainsworth says teachers in his district have asked for legislation to protect themselves and their students from a tragedy such as the one which claimed 17 lives in Florida.
