NRA Files Federal Suit Against New Florida Gun Control Law

Florida governor signs gun control bill dubbed 'baby step' by students

That proposal even has substantial backing among gun-owning NRA members: 53% support it, with only 25% strongly opposed. They have to say what they need the money for and how they're going to use it.

He said he's signing the legislation because it makes schools safer.

The governor singled out two fathers whose children were killed, saying that they walked the halls of the Legislature since the shooting seeking change. "I think it's just ingrained that we're going to continue to move forward in a positive direction". "And that's healthy in our democracy", he said.

The bill was signed into law in the presence of some Parkland survivors and their families, while some of the student campaigners from the school welcomed it as a good first step.

Wells Fargo said it plans "to engage our customers that legally manufacture firearms and other stakeholders on what we can do together to promote better gun safety for our communities", according to a Bloomberg report published Wednesday.

"It's nowhere near the long-term solution. It's nowhere near what we want, but it's progress and uplifting to see".

If you count Scott, who earned an A-plus rating himself, that makes 68 NRA-approved politicians who chose to break with the group. "You should be proud".

In other words, construction was responsible for approximately one-fifth of net new job creation in February. Even mining firms, a job-losing industry in recent years, hired 9,000 workers.

Authorities in Florida are releasing the panicked 911 calls related last month's deadly school shooting as a gun-control bill sits on the governor's desk.

The measure is not what Scott called for, falls short of what survivors demanded and challenges National Rifle Association orthodoxy. Parts of that law impose new gun controls, one of them raising the age to purchase a long gun (i.e., a rifle or shotgun) from 18 - as it is under federal law and across the country - to 21.

Many Democrats voted against the bill due to a controversial provision creating a program that allows superintendents and sheriffs to arm some school personnel, following the argument that gun-free zones prevent people from defending themselves against a shooter. It also claims that the law especially infringes on young womens' rights, as these "pose a relatively slight risk of perpetrating a school shooting [or] a violent crime of any kind". She objected to the new waiting period, age limits, and the ban on the possession of bump stocks.

Despite its support of arming teachers through school marshal programs, the NRA tweeted that Florida's newly-enacted ban "totally eviscerates" the second amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. It also creates a so-called guardian programme enabling some teachers and other school employees to carry guns.

Florida's Attorney General Pam Bondi said the changes were "the right thing to do". Scott can't veto individual items in the bill itself, but does have line-item veto power with the budget.

Florida's teacher union is calling on Gov. Rick Scott to veto $67 million that's been set aside for a contentious program that would allow the training and arming of some people who work at schools. Scott was "born and raised essentially around firearms", he says. In a brief hearing Friday, he stood with his head bowed as he appeared via video conference.

On Friday, Cruz appeared before a judge again to face 17 attempted murder charges for the teenagers he injured in his killing spree.
