Parkland Shooting: Deputies will carry rifles on school grounds, Broward sheriff says

(Worthy News) – A week after the massacre at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead, the sheriff in charge of investigating the shooting has ordered deputies to carry rifles on school grounds “from this point forward.”

“Our deputies who are qualified and trained will be carrying rifles on school grounds from this point forward,” Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said during a news conference Wednesday — one week after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Israel said the policy was implemented Wednesday morning and deputies will be required to keep their rifles locked in their police vehicle when they are not being carried. [ Source: NBC News (Read More…) ]
