Scott has repeatedly said that he objects to the three-day waiting period in the legislation and opposes "arming teachers", but would not say whether he intends to sign the bill into law.
By a narrow margin, Florida legislators have passed controversial gun safety legislation limiting sales of certain firearms and providing for the arming of some school staff, in the wake of the recent massacre in Parkland.
The NRA focused its criticism on the age-based gun ban and new waiting periods.
Scott has gotten top marks from the NRA in the past for supporting gun-rights measures, but he broke with the lobbying group after last month's slayings, calling for raising the minimum age to purchase any type of gun.
Other provisions would create new mental health programs for schools; establish an anonymous tip line where students and others could report threats to schools, ban bump stocks and improve communication between schools, law enforcement and state agencies. Some teachers, and other school personnel, will undergo special training sanctioned by the state so that they are skilled enough to carry a weapon as part of the guardian program.
But one program, the Coach Aaron Feis Guardian Program, named for a school staff member who died trying to protect students the day of the shooting, drew much of the heat during the bill's deliberation, and even after signing from Scott himself.
"He nearly got this guy, cause I know someone who saw it on video", Pollack said.
Counties opting out of the provision to arms teachers could redirect those funds to hire more school officers, Scott said.
The gunman who opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School used such a weapon, an AR-15 rifle. Florida hasn't passed any legislation like this in God knows how long. They also criticized federal and state law enforcement officials for failing to use tools now available under current law to stop the Parkland shooter after he committed several acts of domestic violence and was repeatedly reported to police for threats he made to shoot up a school.

Mokai Lounge has not posted anything about the incident at this time, but angry Facebook users continue to let their thoughts be heard on the club's page.
It goes on to say that Florida's new ban "broadens these preexisting limits" by extending the ban to rifles and shotguns, and prohibiting adults under 21 from buy firearms from any source, not just federally licensed dealers.
The bill signed Friday falls short of what Scott and the shooting's survivors wanted.
The measure will automatically become law within 15 days unless vetoed by Scott, who said on Wednesday prior to the vote that he had not yet decided whether to support the bill.
"My precious daughter Meadow's life was taken, and there's nothing I can do to change that".
To say what's followed in the weeks since the latest mass shooting in the United States has alarmed me would be an understatement.
The shooting suspect, Nikolas Cruz, remains jailed without bond.
A grand jury indicted Cruz on Wednesday on 17 counts of first-degree murder and 17 of attempted first-degree murder in connection with the shooting. The head of the county's public defender's office, which is representing Cruz, said last month there is no question Cruz is guilty, and that the teen is willing to plead guilty to avoid the death penalty.
The Broward County Sheriff's Office on Thursday released audio of 10 of the 81 calls its 911 center received during the February 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 dead and its aftermath.
Prosecutors have not announced a decision.
