Better Than Nothing

The BBC reports Florida shooting: State lawmakers pass gun control measures.

Actually the Florida senate passed several measures: the age to buy any gun was raised to 21 and there is a 3-day waiting period for all guns; the sale or possession of “bump stocks” is illegal; and teaching personnel are exempt from the new armed school marshal program. The marshal program requires local school board approval.

This still has to pass the house and be signed by the governor. Marion Hammer is probably having a fit, but this is a tiny move in the direction that the legislature needs to take.
