CHARGE OUR POLITICIANS WITH BRIBERY - DO WE STILL ALLOW HANGING?

  CHARGE OUR POLITICIANS WITH AIDING AND ABETTING MURDER BY NOT STOPPING ANYTHING

  PROHIBIT CLOSED DOOR SESSIONS ON GUN CONTROL - COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY

  HANG OR ELECTROCUTE THE NRA LEADERS AS TRAITORS   ( FIRING SQUAD...BETTER IDEA, MORE APPROPRIATE) 

  FINE THE NRA ONE MILLION DOLLARS PER VICTIM ON MASS MURDERS USING MILITARY WEAPONS

  BAN BUMP STOCKS

  THREE DAY WAIT ON MILITARY STYLE WEAPONS WITH LARGE MAGS REGARDLESS

  BAN HIGH CAPACITY MAGS - USE CONSTITUTES ARREST AND SEIZURE

  RAISE MINIMUM AGE TO 21 YEARS ON ALL WEAPONS

  IMPROVE SCHOOL SECURITY, LOCK-DOWNS, ELECTRONIC, SNIFFERS AND TRAINED DOGS

  COMPETENCY TESTS FOR GUN OWNERS

  COMPETENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR OWNERS NOT GUN SHOW RUBBER STAMPS

  REVISE BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION WITH A THREE DAY DELAY AND STRICTER REQUIREMENTS

  RULES AND OR RESTRICTIONS ON THOSE WITH TRESPASS OR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RECORDS

   ESTABLISH CORRIDORS OF COMPUTER EXCHANGES WITH INFORMATION,  MENTAL RECORDS, POLICE INQUIRES

  THE LARGEST CATEGORIES OF LOSS OF LIFE IN OUR TEEN-AGERS IS…   1) CAR ACCIDENTS 2) GUNFIRE

                CAR ACCIDENTS ARE AVOIDABLE BY PROPER TRAINING AND ENFORCEMENT

                GUNFIRE IS SIMPLY MANSLAUGHTER, MURDER OR ATTEMPTED MURDER

  THE TRAINING AT GUN SHOWS FOR CONCEALED CARRY PERMITTING IS FOUR HOURS, 

               AND WE HAD TWO STUDENTS WHO TOOK THE CLASS AND ASKED THEM QUESTIONS A DAY LATER,

               HE AND SHE FAILED

  THE PISTOL FIRING QUALIFICATION CONSISTED OF HITTING A TARGET WITH A REVOLVER AND SOFT LOADS AT  

                ABOUT FIFTEEN FEET AND MOST COULD DO MORE DAMAGE IF THEY THREW THE GUN AT THE PAPER TARGET,

                BASICALLY THIS WAS A JOKE.   WHEN YOU ARE GETTING A CONCEALED CARRY AND DON’T KNOW HOW A 

                REVOLVER FUNCTIONS, I MIGHT BE MORE SCARED OF THE VICTIM THAN THE PERP


REALLY BAD IDEAS

  ARMING THE TEACHERS - 

The bill, which would have allowed a principal to designate someone to carry firearms on public school campuses, was scheduled to be heard Tuesday but was pulled late Friday night.  Sen. Greg Steube, the committee chairman, issued the decision after several top senators said they were opposed to considering the bill.  Groups opposed to the bill flooded legislators with phone calls the last two days.  "More guns is not the solution to gun violence," said Jan Neuberger, a member of the Moms Demand Action St. Petersburg chapter.


Neuberger joined several hundred people at Williams Park in downtown St. Petersburg on Saturday evening rallying for increased gun control.  “We support and honor the Second Amendment, but we don’t believe the Second Amendment and personal safety from gun violence should be mutually exclusive,” Neuberger said.  Lisa Perry, a member of the local Women’s March chapter, said the rally was about demanding more than just "thoughts and prayers" from elected officials.


"We’re watching children become victims while they’re just trying to go to school," Perry said. “We want to come together and have a place to heal, support the victims, but also we’re not just going to go home until we follow up with some meaningful action.”  Lawmakers in attendance, including U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg, called for a ban on assault rifles, bump stocks and for stricter background checks when purchasing a gun. 


Aida Mackic, a mother of three, became emotional as she described an instance where her young son asked how a shooting like the one in Parkland could happen in a space he thought was safe.  "There are no words, we have failed our children," Mackic said. "What have we as parents done to provide these safe spaces? Shame on us, shame on us as a community to allow this to continue.


Florida Carry, which advocates for the rights of gun owners statewide, backed the proposal to allow teachers to carry guns in classrooms. The group also wants the Florida Legislature to eliminate “ un-free zones" across the state, according to our reporting partners at the Tampa Bay Times.


Current state law bans guns from all Florida schools.  The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland has revived an ongoing legislative debate about how to respond to gun violence.  Democrats want the Legislature to take up gun control bills that have languished again this year, but Republican legislative leaders are talking about boosting mental health programs in Florida’s public schools as well considering measures that would bolster safety on school campuses.


Gov. Rick Scott has said he plans to talk to legislative leaders in the coming week about what could be done to make it harder for people who are mentally ill to purchase a gun.  


LOTS MORE COMMING...
