A COMMISSION investigating the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, has recommended that teachers be allowed to carry guns to avoid further attacks.
On 14 February 2018, a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 students and staff members. It was the deadliest high school shooting in American history.
A commission made up of 15 members was appointed to look at the safety of the school and what could be done to avoid any such incidents happening again. A first look at the full report says that teachers who volunteer to carry weapons and are prepared to have training should be allowed to carry guns in school.
Other recommendations include installing bulletproof glass on the windows and making sure that classrooms can be locked from the inside.
The suggestion that teachers should be armed with guns has upset a lot of people, especially as there have been many protests since the shooting calling for tighter gun laws in America.
Some leading education organisations are strongly against the idea, while others have said that more needs to be done to prevent dangerous people getting hold of guns in the first place.
