"Responding to terrified parents of students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Gov. Rick Scott asked Broward County authorities to temporarily post an armed law enforcement officer at “every point of entry” at the school after a series of disturbing events in recent days." ...
“I am writing to express my grave concern with amendments that are inappropriate for inclusion in the state constitution,” Corcoran wrote. “The Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms. All firearm policies flow from that fundamental right and should remain policy matters for the Legislature.”
So, let the Legislature decide instead of the People of Florida? ...
Two days after being slammed by the National Rifle Association for pushing through a new law with gun control measures, House Speaker Richard Corcoran sent a letter to a state panel looking to rewrite the state constitution bashing an assault weapons ban proposal.
Remember his face and name, and shame him into oblivion. Deplorable!
Pull the string and I'll wink at you, I'm your puppet
I'll do funny things if you want me to, I'm your puppet
I'm yours to have and to hold
Darling you've got full control of your puppet
Pull another string and I'll kiss your lips, I'm your puppet
Snap your finger and I'll turn you some flips, I'm your puppet
Your every wish is my command
All you gotta do is wiggle your little hand
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet
I'm just a toy, just a funny boy
That makes you laugh when you're blue
I'll be wonderful, do just what I'm told
I'll do anything for you
I'm your puppet, I'm your puppet
Pull them little strings and I'll sing you a song, I'm your puppet
Make me do right or make me do wrong, I'm your puppet
It wasn’t the NRA it was avid voters and followers of the constitution such as myself and my family that said if you vote for this we will vote you out. Just as you have said so far there are more of us.
Who votes for people (?) like this?
Vote this guy out! He has got to go!
His opinion is no more valid than mine.
Vote him out
Just exactly what I thought he would do...he is a slimy weasel. 😡🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑😡
And since we elect the legislators and they assume their power from the people, this is merely cutting out the middle men. You obviously forgot who put you in power in the first place.
And he's running for governor???
We will vote him out! VOTE BLUE IN 18 AND BEYOND!
In Florida, we have learned to be wary of laws originating in the legislature. Perhaps we would trust them more if the gerrymandering was eliminated.
Good riddance, Corcoran. Florida’s teens and voters will see that you take a permanent time out from governing. But for now, go to the corner of the room, sit facing the wall, and wear a Dunce cap...until you figure out that mowing down kids with military assault style weapons should no longer be an option in our state. Move to a state that allows your preferred weapon. Surely you must know that having such a weapon is not a Constitutional right? If not, the teens will be happy to explain it to you.
Let him self-destruct! Disgusting little man.
Someone needs to remind him that he is talking about the 2nd AMENDMENT which by definition means it was NOT in our original Constitution. Our constitution was designed to be amended, changed, modified. If it weren't, there would never have been any right to bear arms or freedom of speech! Those were AMENDMENTS. The People can make changes - that IS in the original Constitution.

"Alarmed by his repeated visits to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and his infatuation with his sibling’s notoriety as a mass murderer, prosecutors and police moved Tuesday to keep the younger brother of Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz locked up on trespassing charges and to strip him of his ability to own a gun." ...
One month after Nikolas Cruz walked into a Parkland high school and murdered 17 people with an AR-15-style rifle, police are using a law passed in the wake of the attack to try and strip the shooter’s younger brother of the ability to own a gun.
