Israel announced he ordered all trained deputies to carry their rifles on campuses across the county.
When deputies are not holding their rifles Israel says they will be stored and locked in the deputy's patrol cars.
This is one of the first moves the sheriff has implemented following the shooting.
At the time of the Feb. 14 shooting, there was an armed school resource deputy, but he never encountered the accused gunman, something the sheriff says will be looked at and scrutinized.
Israel is calling for more action, which includes designing schools to be safer, giving law enforcement more authority to Baker Act people who are threats to themselves or others. Israel says he supports stricter gun laws.
"We do need to have some gun control reform. Eighteen-year-olds should never have a rifle. An 18-year-old kid, they're not adults yet. They're in high school," Israel said. "These kids should not have a rifle. Bump stocks should be illegal. They should be outlawed forever. Automatic rifles should be outlawed forever and anybody who says different, I don't know about other people, but Emma and I, we're call B.S. on that."
