Florida Senate holds Saturday session on school safety bill and gun regulations
Mar 05, 2018, 01:05
Democrats had introduced the two-year ban as an amendment to a broader GOP-led bill on gun reforms.
An amendment from Democrats was unexpectedly added to a sprawling bill that includes gun control, school safety and mental health measures created to prevent future mass shootings like the one February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 students and faculty dead.

They argued that a ban on any specific weapon would be unconstitutional, and the first step toward confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "We still have the mental health piece, the school hardening piece, the firearms safety piece and the "school marshal" program is still in the bill". "So, we can do a lot of things, but this is kind of the one thing that is consistent", said State Sen.
Senators voted 21-17 to defeat amendments to add the ban and moratorium to the bill.
