Florida lawmakers propose 'Toaster Pastry Gun Freedom Act' to curb student suspensions

Leslie Postal reported in the Orlando Sentinel.
"In the last several years, Florida lawmakers have worked to dial back zero-tolerance policies, which were put in place in response to school shootings such as those at Columbine High in Colorado.

"Critics have argued the policies, even if well meaning, have led to too many students getting in trouble for minor, often harmless acts."
