NRA sues to block new Florida gun bill

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said the bill was a compromise balancing concerns of both gun-control and gun-rights advocates

The lawsuit started just hours after Florida Gov. Rick Scott publicly went against allies in the NRA and untimely signed a gun control bill that was drafted in response to the fatal school shooting in Parkland, Fla., on February 14.

Al Hoffman Jr., a real estate developer who served as Ambassador to Portugal under George W. Bush, plans to publicly announce the formation of the group, which will be called Americans for Gun Safety Now, on March 24, when he is in Washington D.C.to attend the March for Our Lives rally.

Rick Scott signs the new gun-control bill into law. "I want to create a safe learning environment but neither the waiting period nor the age limit expansion does that", Putnam said, but refused to answer whether he would have approved the new law.

Hoffman declined to specify who was involved or he had spoken with about the endeavor, explaining that he wanted to reveal more information later in the month, but said he had held conversations with over 50 people.

"We are doing everything we can to help our students finish on time and with no debt or as little debt as possible", Negron said.

Miami Beach Mayor and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Philip Levine said in a statement the law "falls short of the public demands set by the majority of Floridians and the student survivors" of the shooting.

Democrats, meanwhile, were quick to fault Scott and legislators for failing to include a ban on some types of semi-automatic rifles such as the one used in the Parkland shootings.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the Second Amendment "guarantee [s] the individual right to possess and carry" firearms. "So I'm really proud of what we did".

Some have also ripped the NRA and criticized lawmakers for accepting donations from the organization. The state's main teacher union has been at odds with the Republican-controlled Legislature for years.

SB 7026 raises the minimum age to buy a rifle from 18 to 21, bans the sale of bump stocks and creates a three-day waiting period for all gun purchases, while also allowing for the arming of school staff on Florida campuses.

The Florida House voted to pass the bill, which includes a controversial measure to arm some teachers and other school personnel who undergo special training sanctioned by the state, earlier this week.

"You know what? If it's 21 to have a beer, what's so radical about being 21 in order for you to access a gun?" he said on the MSNBC show, "Morning Joy".

"On the higher education we're gonna make permanent the expansion of bright futures making sure the we can cover the December sessions".
