He has just re-elected Bill Nelson for another six year term. Nice going!

Absolutely, needs to so get over its fascination for Rick Scott. He just committed political suicide in his Senate race. The GOP should seek another nominee!!!!

I never saw what Floridians saw in Scott: nothing much there!

Crime will increase.
It always does when firearm restrictions are made into law.

Always.

Like almost all GOP politicians, Scott is a coward.

This is with Republicans in control. I see the Broward County sheriff & his dept and the FBI are not being held accountable in their failings that would have stopped this scumbag. Yet more laws while the govt f!cks it all up to then pass more laws. Take this to the Supreme Court.

Yes, he has.

And once again folks we've been screwed by .........The Republicans!

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this stupid law "only" took away the right for people aged 18-20 to buy specifically rifles from what I read.

An 18-year-old in Florida can still buy a handgun. They can still have someone else give them a rifle, I think?

Sad face.

Major mistake. Destroyed a pretty solid legacy. Hello to six ore years of Nelson. Dammit.

Nope. All guns. Handguns were already 21, which in itself is a tragedy. Also a perfect example of the slippery slope in action.

If the majority of mass shooters were under 21, I’d be all for it, but the majority are over 21, and some who were under stole guns like Lanza. It’s not over for the left who want more. I can’t also see how a three day waiting period will help prevent a shooting - seems to me that a mass shooter would wait.

Absolutely correct! They're about as worthless as tits on a bull. I hope this haunts Scott and all the Republicans who voted for it for the rest of their very short political careers.
