Scott has not said whether he will sign the bill or not. Contact him and let him know how you feel. Be polite. Phone calls are usually more effective but the lines tend to be constantly busy on hot issues like this.

The final version includes the following measures:

- Raise the age to purchase a firearm to 21 from 18;

- Require a three-day waiting period for firearm purchases, with some exceptions;

- Ban the sale or possession of bump fire stocks, which allow a semiautomatic weapon to fire more like an automatic weapon;

- Give law enforcement more authority to seize weapons and ammunition from those deemed mentally unfit or otherwise a threat;

- Provide additional funding for armed school resource officers and mental health services.

Too vague....Confiscate guns is now a "feely" thing?

So no hunting until you are 21? Are they nuts?

He will sign it.
He’s a finger in the air politician running for Senate.
He wants to be the other FL Amnesty Senator.

" Give law enforcement more authority to seize weapons and ammunition
from those deemed mentally unfit or otherwise a threat"

Besides being a violation of Constitutional rights
such a determination, without "Due Process" of a court warrant or court order,
is a violation of the common law.
Such a decision by a law enforcement officer, on his own, could be made in an "arbitrary and capricious" manner.
Who is watching the watchers; and who is preventing wholesale confiscation, or is delegated responsibility and accountability ?
This is a "knee-jerk", emotional reaction to an already known, and preventable situation promulgated by Obama era liberalism in the school district.

SHAME ON THOSE AR 15’S
FOR WHAT HAPPENED AT THE PARKSIDE SCHOOL

BLAME GUNS
NOT
PREVIOUS GOVERNMENT POLICIES FAILURES THEY
MUST BE HIDDEN

The inability to counter this perverted (they call progressive) agenda created by the democratic party ( in name only) has its goose stepping adherents in the media left make it up as guns and the NRA garbage through their swill mills. When it should be contested by GOP state and federal legislators who should be demanding investigative hearings exposing policy failures

DON’T MENTION THIS
Besides examining the conduct and arrangements of the Broward county sheriff’s dept performance failures. A dramatic reduction in disciplinary incidents at Parkside were reported after the selection of Obama’s Chicago friend as school superintendent occurred which was publicly acclaimed.And that school district was receiving large grant money from Obama’s Attorney General because of those results. That many critics claimed encouraged criminal activity. Which should require Trump Administration US Attorney General beside find out why when the FBI knew that Cruz should not be able to purchase weapons did. And review these grant programs instituted by the previous Obama administration.

I find it ridiculous that you can vote at 18 but not buy a gun. Isn’t a vote more deadly than a gun? I have objected throughout this process to the manner in which this bill was brought up and passed, not to mention that it does little to address the system failures that allowed the Parkland shooting to occur.

Don’t kid yourself, Scott will sign. He invested his future in the bill from day one. Start lobbying your representatives for at least a partial repeal of this bill.

Why do Republicans always pull this crap? Was there any rush for legislation to restrict abortion when Kermit Gosnell was chopping up babies?

Scott has not said whether he will sign the bill or not.

Scott has done this before on TWO bills that would have abolished alimony in Florida divorce cases. Hemmed and hawed and vacillated before finally wimping out and contradicting previous statements he had made about his intentions.

The ultimate moistened-finger-in-the-wind politician. Do NOT let this guy anywhere near the White House!!

“Give law enforcement more authority to seize weapons and ammunition from those deemed mentally unfit or otherwise a threat;”

That could be any of us. This is the slippery slope that turns into an avalanche.

He’ll sign it! He asked for ALL THESE ATTACKS on gun owners, and a lot more that they didn’t get in the bill.
