Florida sources reported a person in Florida already has to be 21 to buy a handgun but that restriction, if the laws are also accepted by the state's House of Representatives, would extend to other guns such as rifles. According to sources the news comes just weeks after 14 students and three staff was shot dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
Meanwhile the powerful National Rifle Association (NRA) has opposed any rising of age limits or new waiting times. Moreover the lawmakers voted not to arm teachers, unless they are part of the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program, members of the military or former police officers.
according to a spokeswoman for Mr. Scott, he also "still has
concerns" about the three day waiting period, something he has previously
opposed. Moreover the Senate bill also provides nearly $400m to pay for school
safety and mental health initiatives, along with new powers for police to take
guns from those involuntarily committed or deemed a danger to them.
