Florida's Senate Rejects Ban On Assault Rifle, Approves Bill To Arm Teachers (Photos)

Lawmakers sHUt down a bill that would have banned semi-automatic 'assault' weapons such as the AR-15 used in the Parkland school massacre.

However, they did agree to raise the legal age for purchasing a firearm to 21 as well as approve legislation that would give teachers the right to carry guns in school.

The amendments were introduced as part of a packaged set of bills following Nikolas Cruz's shooting spree that left 17 students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School dead on Valentine's Day.
