The NRA Files Lawsuit Over Newly-Passed Florida Gun Legislation

Dispatch Audio Documents Mass Confusion In Parkland Shooting The NRA Files Lawsuit Over Newly-Passed Florida Gun Legislation

A spokesman told CNN the lawsuit is created to protect people's Second Amendment rights. "Securing our schools and protecting the constitutional rights of Americans are not mutually exclusive".

Scott told reporters he would "review the bill line by line" and consult with victims' families before deciding his position.

"We certainly follow all education laws and regulations and we want our kids to be at school in attendance when they are at school", Squier said. "This time must be different".

"More needs to be done, and it's important for the country to be united in the same way the 17 families united in support of this bill", Pollack said after the vote. He has 15 days to sign it, veto it or let it become law without his signature.

"Preventing a responsible 20-year-old from purchasing the best tool for self-defense will not stop a deranged criminal intent on committing a crime", the NRA said. "How could we be happy?" "My daughter just texted me from the school... To me, this is a start for us".

The shooting in Parkland has affected him deeply as well, not just for the school's proximity to Miami and to a school that one of his sons attends, but also because one of the victims was buried in a Wade jersey. "At the end of the day, we'll be left with a really good gun-control, gun-reform bill in the state of Florida", Moskowitz said.

State leaders heard their cries.

While the bill won't please all sides, Scott said he was proud of the collaborative process that occurred to make it happen.

"As a businessman, I've always rejected the idea that government has to be slow", Scott said. "That is why I am signing the legislation today", Scott, said, as media from across the nation, crammed into the governor's office, looked on.

Flanked by parents of some of the victims of the February 14 mass shooting in Parkland, Scott thanked the families of the victims and praised legislators for swiftly passing the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act (SB 7026) just weeks after the shooting at the Broward County school left 17 dead.

US House Speaker Ryan denounces Trump metals tariffs
But there are few signs on Capitol Hill of the political will to pass a bill to rein in Trump and avert a trade war. Trump tweeted Thursday: "Looking forward to 3:30 P.M. meeting today at the White House".

Immediately, the National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit in federal court to challenge the new law, which raises the age from 18 to 21 and imposes a three-day waiting period for the purchase of rifles and other long guns.

According to the timeline, dozens of calls poured in as law enforcement officers from two different agencies descended on the scene and discovered their radios didn't work correctly. Instead, he wanted lawmakers to adopt his own $500 million proposal to put at least one law enforcement officer in every school.

It also creates a so-called guardian program that enables some teachers and other school employees.

These provisions are not popular with many in Florida's legislature, where conservatives have opposed any restrictions on gun ownership in the past.

Though the governor does not fully support the act of arming teachers, he signed the bill since it allows local communities to opt out.

I think the issue really boils down to respect; respect for the bereaved families' grief, respect for life and respect for the vast power a firearm has to take away said life.

The governor, who is expected to mount a U.S. Senate campaign to oust incumbent Democrat U.S. Bill Nelson, is in a tough spot, politically, after splitting with President Donald Trump and some Republicans over what should be done.
