Florida Bans AR15’s — For 15 Minutes

The Florida Senate passed an amendment today, effectively banning the purchase of AR15’s in the state by placing a 2-year moratorium on the sale of the weapons.

Then, 15 minutes later, Republicans sabotaged that by holding a “do-over” and overturning the already accepted amendment on a roll call vote that came in 21/17 to negate it. It’s nice to see that you can just keep re-voting on the same thing over and over again until it turns out the way you want it to turn out in Florida.

It happened during  a rare all-day Saturday session of the state legislature where multiple measures to reduce gun violence were considered. The flip-flop was received poorly at best by state residents who have been pushing for some form of gun control since the recent mass high school shooting in Parkland.

One survivor of the shooting, Cameron Kasky, took to Twitter to also express his disappointment and re-affirm his and his classmates’ resolve on the issue.

Democrats forced the Republicans to hold an open roll-call vote and have it recorded so the names of Florida Republicans who sold their state out would be a matter of public record, undoubtedly to be used in coming elections.
