Florida State Legislature Tackles the Real Danger to Public Health: Porn

White House says Trump tweet about Florida shooting misinterpreted

House Republicans on Tuesday blocked a move by Democrats to open a debate on a ban for semi-automatic weapons, like the one Nikolas Cruz allegedly used to gun down 17 students and teachers on Valentine's Day.

"Research has found a correlation between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, difficulty forming and maintaining intimate relationships, unhealthy brain development and cognitive function, and deviant, problematic or unsafe sexual behavior", Spano argued before the House Health & Human Services Committee in January.

The state House voted down Democratic State Representative Kionne McGhee's motion to hear the bill on banning assault rifles in a 71-36 vote.

If you needed any more proof the Florida Legislature is a broken mass spinning out of control, wholly divorced from the concerns of everyday people and actively hostile toward basic democracy, you've found it. In a Saturday rally in Ft Lauderdale, they pledged to fight to remove any politician who does not support gun control reforms. Then they promptly voted against a proposal to consider removing AR-15 rifles, other assault weapons and large capacity magazines from the state.

According to Florida Republicans, porn is a more pressing public health issue than effing guns with high-capacity magazines?! "Absent any reference to this bill, the bill will be considered dead", McGhee replied.

Many survivors of the Parkland high school massacre were present in the House gallery and voiced their outrage, calling the vote "heartbreaking".

"After all this hard work, and us being teenagers, we can't see how they are viewing this at a different angle". "We are not forgetting this come Midterm Elections - the Anger that I feel right now is indescribable".

Florida is not alone in its anti-porn crusade: six states - Utah, South Dakota, Kansas, Arkansas, Tennessee and Virginia have all passed similar resolutions. "If you want to change the world start by voting".

He stated that the fact that the lawmakers were in session makes it more likely that they could take action, compared with after the 2016 shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, which took place during a summer recess. We live in an age of unreason. We are KIDS who feared for our lives while someone shot up our school.
