The Florida legislature was asked to vote yesterday to have a debate on banning assault weapons. Not a vote on banning the weapons, mind you, but a vote to have a debate on a ban. Here’s how it went down:
The legislative breakdown in Florida is 76 Republicans, 40 Democrats and three vacant seats. Every “nay” vote, meaning every vote to not even discuss the matter, was a Republican vote.
And they did it in front of students who attend Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., the site of the second-deadliest shooting at a U.S. public school.
The way to end the mass slaughter of children in schools is to vote every Republican out of office. In every state. In every county. In every city. In every town. In every village. We already know Republicans are NRA whores. The least they could do is not flaunt it in front of civilized people.
