BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – The first of three public meetings to discuss arming Brevard County teachers was held in Palm Bay on Tuesday evening.

“If you put more guns into the equation, gun violence is just bound to occur,” said Karly Hudson, a junior at Melbourne High School.
The idea came about after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
A state law requires schools to have either an officer or armed guardian on every campus by the start of the next school year.
