Florida Senate Passes Bill Restricting Gun Sales, Arming School Faculty

(From UPI)

Florida’s Senate passed a school safety bill Monday placing new restrictions on rifle sales and including a program that will allow some school faculty to carry fire arms.

The bill crafted in response to the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, during which former student Nikolaus Cruz killed 17 students and faculty members, passed by a vote of 20 to 18.

The bill raises the age limit on the purchase of all guns in Florida from 18 to 21, expands the three-day waiting period on handguns to include all rifles and shotguns and bans the purchase and possession of bump stocks.
