NRA sues Florida hours after gun bill is passed

NRA sues Florida hours after gun bill is passed

"This bill does that".

NRA Florida lobbyist Marion Hammer on Thursday also sent out an "emergency alert" to supporters, urging them to contact Scott and demand a veto.

Retired prosecutor and Florida law professor Bob Dekle sees no legal issue with raising the rifle-purchase age to 21, saying, the framers of the Constitution intended for 21 to be "the age of being adult".

In addition to the age restriction, the bill bans "bump stock" devices, which allow a semi-automatic rifle to fire rapidly, like an automatic weapon.

"We are happy and ready to keep working!", said junior Connor Dietrich.

Gov. Rick Scott signed a school safety and gun reform bill after meeting with the families of the Stoneman Douglas massacre Friday.

Andrew Pollack, whose daughter Meadow died, called the new law "a start for us".

Immediately following the nation's second-worst school shooting, students, parents and teachers from the Parkland school flooded the Capitol, pleading with the Scott and the Legislature to act.

For example, if a washer has a specific color cycle, you could activate that cycle simply by asking the Google Assistant. Today's new features are especially geared towards the smart home and better integrating those gadgets with Assistant.

The legislation, while containing a number of other provisions student activists and their parents from Parkland had embraced, left out one of their chief demands - a ban on assault-style weapons like the one used in the February 14 rampage. Here's what's in it. Fusco said she expects Scott to sign the bill. "I'm going to enjoy the moment", Corcoran said referring to the completion of the session. "I think rather than banning specific weapons, we need to ban specific people from having any weapons". "I'm sure there are NRA members that agree with this bill, some that don't agree with this bill".

Other Democrats, however, especially those from Broward County where the shooting took place, applauded the new law. "So Governor Scott obviously has a hard time keeping his word". If Scott does not veto the bill, it will automatically become law after 15 days.

Scott praised the Legislature for its quick response.

Critics of the bill, like civil rights organization Advancement Project, claim that black and brown students will suffer the most and that the new legislation will only help facilitate the school to prison pipeline.

It creates a new $67 million program for county sheriffs to train school personnel to neutralize an active school shooter.

"The community's demanding action, they want something done", said Rubio on CBS television. Scott is widely considered to be planning a Senate run against Democratic Sen.

On the other side of the aisle, the new regulations on purchasing firearms - the first gun restrictions approved by the Republican-controlled Legislature in almost two decades - divided the GOP caucus. "Until we've done that, we still have a lot of work to do".

Most classroom teachers are excluded from volunteering for the program, a compromise aimed at earning the support of the governor, and many lawmakers, who opposed the idea.

Providing educational programs, mental health treatment and residential services for students with "severe emotional disturbance".

The teacher-arming provision would allow school districts that don't want to participate to opt out.

"When it comes to preventing future acts of horrific school violence, this is beginning of the journey", the statement said.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who is named as a defendant, said she was proud of the law.

Implementing a "suspicious activity reporting tool that allows students and the community to relay information anonymously concerning unsafe, potentially harmful, dangerous, violent, or criminal activities, or the threat of these activities, to appropriate public safety agencies and school officials". The district has two resource officers for its eight schools and had hoped to hire two more before the Stoneman Douglas shooting occurred.

Some gun control advocates framed Scott's decision in political terms as a rare defeat for the NRA, which has been a powerful force in Tallahassee and other state capitals for decades.

He said he expected opposition from the gun lobby.

The " Seychelles were wonderful ... but I keep thinking about obstruction". "Baby, I'm scared", he says to his wife. She added, "I was ready, Bob". "This is so fucking embarrassing", Strong says.
