I'd guess we'll have a Supreme Court case about whether 18 year olds can have their fundamental rights limited until they are 21. (Alcohol is a trickier case because the amendment that repealed prohibition also allowed for regulation; and state law is different from federal law, though the 2nd Amendment has now been incorporated against the states). It's likely to take a while to get there, though.
Arming teachers can take effect much faster, and may have some beneficial effects. Mass spree killings are so rare that it's hard to really measure the effects of legislation like this.
Is it a good compromise? No, I don't think so. Not when police ignore the warning signs for someone like the killer in this case. Fix the problem: identifying those with mental health problems and who are prone to violence, make sure they are on the NICS list, and confined if necessary. At the very least, if they are making threats, prosecute them for those threats.
This is just a committee vote, not a final vote, so if you live in Florida you still have time to get involved.
