Florida has passed a new bill regarding gun control

Spread the love

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA —    Florida has passed its first gun control bill  since the Parkland Shooting this week, and, it certainly has people talking.  Florida reportedly passed a new law that requires the age to be raised from 18 to 21, and, a mandatory 3 day waiting period is now in full swing.

The bill comes amid increased and intense scrutiny over gun laws across the United States.   The bill  passed the appropriate chambers, but, won’t become law for at least 15 days. But, that’s only if  Gov. Rick Scott doesn’t veto it.

Interestingly, the bill also allows officials to arm teachers (although nobody seems to really support that).  The bill did not include, ehum, the most popular demand by  gun control advocates: a ban on assault weapons like those used in the shooting.
