The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) called an Alabama push to arm teachers “the dumbest idea [he had] ever heard” and “crazy.” >> 5 things to know about Doug Jones, winner of the Alabama Senate race Alabama’s state House is considering a bill that would allow teachers to carry firearms. State Rep. Will Ainsworth – who is sponsoring the bill – introduced it during a press conference at an Alabama elementary school. Ainsworth, a Republican, said teachers carrying guns would be required to undergo 40 hours of training before being certified to carry a gun in the classroom, AL.com reports. The state won’t pay for a teacher’s gun. >> Trump sends memo to DOJ asking for bump stock ban after Parkland massacre Ainsworth said the law was about giving kids “a fighting chance.” “The only way we can do that is to have people armed in the schools to fight back,” he said. >> Read more trending news  But to Jones, the new law doesn’t make any sense. He told WKRG: “I think that’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard. I think it’s crazy. You don’t need 40 to 50 guns in there, and it’s a cost issue. You’re going to have to train those teachers. You don’t need to arm America in order to stop this; you just need to be smart about it.” Jones was elected to the upper chamber in December after a heated race with Republican candidate Roy Moore. The former U.S. attorney has advocated for gun control in the past while simultaneously being a Second Amendment supporter. During the Senate race, the National Rifle Association spent almost $55,000 on mailers against him. He was the first Democrat elected to a Senate seat from Alabama in over two decades. >> On Rare.us: A CNN panelist thinks the FBI didn’t act on the Nikolas Cruz warning because of his race This isn’t the first time that pro-gun politicians have suggested arming educators, but the notion is getting another push in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting that left 17 dead. A sheriff in one of Florida’s biggest counties said his department is putting together a program to train and arm teachers. Even Department of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been asked about the idea, although she declined to take a stand on the issue, instead saying: “I think this is an important issue for all states to grapple with and to tackle. They clearly have the opportunity and the option to do that and there are differences in how states approach this.” Rare reached out to Sen. Doug Jones’ office but received no comment.
  • A vote Wednesday by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority Board could put over one thousand TSA workers on notice their employment is coming to an end. The board is considering whether to move to a private security firm that, under guidance of the TSA, would man the security checkpoints and handle lines of travelers at Florida’s busiest airport. Because of training, the change would take two years, but almost immediately TSA workers will be told their jobs are ending. They would have options of applying to the private firm, retiring or transfering to another U.S. airport like Tampa or further away. “These are jobs that come with health insurance, life insurance, retirement and annual leave and sick leave, benefits that come with good working class jobs,” said J. David Cox, president of the American Federation of Government Employees. He spoke with reporters outside the Orange County Administration building in downtown Orlando as dozens of screeners picketed for their jobs.  “There are over 11 hundred transportation security officers that work over at the airport,” he explained. The TSA is staying neutral, since it will not be supplanted as the lead security agency, but may have to work with a private government contractor, if the GOAA board votes for the change. But the workers are not standing silent. They say this will hurt the economy. “We’ve been there before with privatized screeners,” said Cox, who said that the attack on 9-11 “shut this country down and yes, even shut the gates to Walt Disney World.”  
  • A 15-year-old Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School freshman who, dressed in his JROTC uniform, died while holding a door open so his fellow classmates could escape a gunman with an assault rifle, has been posthumously admitted to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. One of Peter Wang’s life goals was to attend West Point. Though that dream died on Feb. 14 with Wang and 16 of his classmates and teachers, officials at West Point offered him admission to the prestigious program on Tuesday, the day of his funeral.  Officials took to West Point’s Facebook page to honor Wang, who they said lost his life in service to others. “The U.S. Military Academy honors Peter Wang with an honorary admission for his bravery and selflessness,” the post read. “One of West Point's priorities is to develop leaders of character who are committed to the values of duty, honor, and country. Peter Wang's actions on February 14th are an example of those very principles and for this reason, the academy honors his dream of being a West Point cadet with a 2025 letter of acceptance.” “It was an appropriate way for USMA to honor this brave young man,” an official statement from West Point’s public affairs office stated. “West Point has given posthumous offers of admissions in very rare instances for those candidates or potential candidates whose actions exemplified the tenets of duty, honor and country.” The statement also offered the officials’ deepest condolences to Wang’s family and the Stoneman Douglas community.  Wang has also been awarded the JROTC Medal of Heroism, along with two of his fellow slain freshmen. The Miami Herald reported that Wang would be buried with the medal pinned to his chest. “It’s my understanding that this is an open casket service and the family requested their son be buried in his JROTC uniform,” U.S. Army Cadet Command spokesman Michael Maddox told the Herald. “The JROTC heroism medal will be on his uniform, but a second ‘keepsake’ medal will be given to the family.” Maddox told the newspaper that Alaina Petty’s family received her medal Monday at the 14-year-old’s funeral, held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Coral Springs. The family of Martin Duque, also 14, will be presented with his metal at his funeral on Saturday.  Like Wang, Petty and Duque were members of Stoneman Douglas’s JROTC program. JROTC.com indicates that the Medal of Heroism is a “U.S. military decoration given by the Department of the Army to a JROTC cadet who performs a heroic act. “The achievement must be an accomplishment so exceptional and outstanding that it clearly sets the individual apart from fellow students or from other persons in similar circumstances,” the website states. “The performance must have involved the acceptance of danger and extraordinary responsibilities, exemplifying praiseworthy fortitude and courage.”   Maddox told the Herald that additional cadets at Stoneman Douglas may receive awards for courageous actions they took the day of the massacre. For example, junior Colton Haab and other cadets, upon hearing gunshots, ushered several dozen students into the JROTC room. The cadets grabbed Kevlar sheets used for marksmanship practice and held them up in front of their terrified classmates to shield them from bullets. “We took those sheets and we put them in front of everybody so they weren’t seen, because they were behind a solid object and the Kevlar would slow the bullet down,” Colton told CNN the day after the shooting. “I didn’t think it was going to stop it, but it would definitely slow it down to make it from a catastrophic to a lifesaving thing.” “However, the immediate focus right now is on supporting the funerals with dignity and honor, so deserved by these cadets and their families,” Maddox told the Herald.  Wang became one of the heroes in the shooting after witnesses reported that he held open doors for several other students to flee the gunfire coming from the AR-15 in the hands of accused gunman Nikolas Cruz. Cruz, 19, a former Stoneman Douglas student who was expelled last year, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.  Wang’s friends and supporters established a White House petition seeking full military honors for his burial. By Tuesday afternoon, more than 66,000 people had signed the petition. A petition must reach 100,000 signatures to get a response from the White House. 
  • A 67-year-old man died Monday after he fell from a 500-foot cliff in California while trying to help his dog, who was partway down the cliff, according to multiple reports. >> Read more trending news The man, who was not identified, had been hiking with his dog when it went over the edge of a cliff at Thornton State Beach, according to the California Highway Patrol. The dog became stranded partway down the cliff, KGO reported. The man attempted to help his dog, but slipped and fell from the cliff, according to the news station. Officials with the CHP said the section of cliff from which the man fell was about 500 feet tall. With the help of a CHP helicopter, first responders found the man in grave condition. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short while later. Officials said the man’s dog was recovered safely. It was reunited with its family Monday.
  • An attorney pleaded guilty Tuesday to lying to the FBI in the agency's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its possible ties to President Donald Trump's campaign.
