Fla. State Lawmakers Propose Bill To Reverse Gun-Free Zone Laws In Schools

New details are emerging about the suspected gunman in the Florida high school shooting.
Authorities say 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz legally purchased at least seven rifles weeks before the shooting, including an AK-47 style weapon.
He also legally purchased the AR-15 officials suspect was used in the shooting.
Defense Attorneys say Cruz will plead guilty to 17 counts of premeditated murder if prosecutors agree not to pursue the death penalty.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School is set to re-open in phases starting Friday, and the district hopes to fully resume classes next Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Florida state lawmakers are proposing new legislation to allow teachers and administrators to carry firearms on school campuses.

The bill was proposed by Republican state Senator Dennis Baxley, who has long advocated for reversing gun-free zone laws on school grounds.
It would allow school principals to designate certain teachers to carry firearms in the classroom, and provide them with concealed carry permits and proper training.
However, the legislation is getting push back from Democrats and some Republicans, who are fighting for stricter gun control policies.
The state’ Senate Judiciary Committee will hold discussions on the bill Tuesday.
