What are Florida's gun laws
Florida Senate for more gun control
Berlin. After the rampage in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 people dead, the US state Senate passed a bill with stricter restrictions on the sale of rifles. The draft law provides for an increase in the minimum age for acquiring weapons from 18 to 21 years. In addition, some teachers should be able to carry weapons if they so wish.
In the Senate, 20 MPs spoke out in favor of the proposal, 18 against. Now the design goes to the House of Representatives in Florida. After the vote, both Democrats and Republicans criticized the content of the proposed amendment.
For many Democrats, the proposal did not go far enough because it did not include a ban on certain semi-automatic rifles. They also criticized the voluntary arming of teachers, for which US President Donald Trump had campaigned in advance. The Republicans particularly opposed the introduction of a waiting period before buying weapons, which, according to the draft, should last three days, as reported by tagesschau.de.
The proposed law also provides for the financial upgrading of programs to support people with mental illness.
In the massacre at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, a 19-year-old ex-student shot 14 teenagers and three adults on Valentine's Day. After the fact, another debate broke out in the USA about the tightening of gun law. In contrast to the case of the bloodshed last year, the discussion did not ebb away. This is also due to the commitment of survivors of the rampage, who put pressure on politicians with numerous appearances.
