Complete ban. Raising the legal age to 21 is nothing but political crumbs and ignores the question why we are making military style weapons of mass destruction for sale to the general public, period. It needs to be outlawed. And that has nothing to do with violating the intent of the 2nd amendment.
Minuscule step in the right direction. Why are politicians so pathetically timid? Fix this - NO ONE NEEDS WEAPONS OF WAR. A hunting rifle would do the trick. Btw the 2nd amendment was talking about MUSKETS, the gun fanatics can have those.
They are throwing us a bone hoping for headlines like this one that “shows” they are standing up to the NRA. This is nothing. Until they repudiate the NRA and give back the blood money and apologize for their part in the deaths of these young people, they are still working against us.
All NRA supported officials should be voted out of office in FL in midterm and 2020 elections. All high schooler should be old enough to vote and they all need to vote!!
Now how about banning assault weapons in Florida. It is a slap in the face to victims and their parents and everyone else in schools not to support a ban.
Look, it's a small gesture, but ANY defiance of the NRA hegemony by a major Republican is a start. It's a tiny step toward progress. I'll take it, and hope that it's just the first of many.
I suggest a minimum age of 75 years for all people applying for firearm licenses. That would solve the problem without changing the constitution. Am I right?
The shooting in Florida could have been stopped but not the one in Vegas. The man in Vegas was a multimillionaire and could have bought a gun made before the laws existed
A step in the right direction. However I do have to point out that the Las Vegas shooter was over 21. How about raising the age to "never".
Well that should end the crazy's from shooting people,but at age 18 they can join the military an use guns that's the best they can come up with
