Rick Scott’s Weak Gun Proposal is a Political Ploy that Doesn’t Do Nearly Enough

American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp offered the following statement on Gov. Rick Scott’s gun proposal:

“The tragic school shooting in Parkland was the fifth mass shooting in Florida in two years, yet for seven years Governor Rick Scott has worked to weaken common sense regulations at every turn and prevented even the most sensible of gun violence prevention laws. Now that he’s in political peril, though, he’s offering a smokescreen that doesn’t go nearly far enough in protecting Floridians from gun violence. Floridians have had enough of politicians like Scott who repeatedly put their political allies ahead of keeping kids safe.”
