NRA sues Florida to block part of new gun law

13 March 2018

Governor Scott made it clear he is still an NRA supporter. California state senator Scott Wiener, a Democrat, tweeted that the gun lobby has become a "toxic force" on the USA political and cultural stage. They will never be forgotten. Here's State Representative Kamia Brown speaking at a press conference earlier this month.

Critics have said arming school staff only heightens the risks of gun violence, and poses a particular risk to minority students, who they said were more likely to be shot in the heat of a disciplinary situation or if mistaken as an intruder. "In this bill, there is no exception to the already law-Stand Your Ground, included", she said.

The guardian program and the authority given to teachers and employees to carry weapons in schools is a responsibility some employees would prefer was not on their shoulders.

Broadcom Qualcomm takeover blocked by Trump over national security worries
The possible takeover raised security concerns and led to an investigation by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. But the transfer plan apparently failed to win over Trump when it came time for him to make his final decision on the deal.

MARTIN: Representative Brown ultimately chose to vote against the gun control package.

Congressman, thanks so much for being with us.

"Highly trained expert teachers will be allowed to hide carry, subject to State Law". It is an outrageous travesty that the NRA would use the 14 Amendment-which was adopted to confer citizenship and equal protection rights to former African Slaves-to argue for their selling of guns to kids. To me, 132 hours is inadequate.

Jose Mourinho tells Man United to forget about Liverpool FC
Asked whether he felt he had a squad good enough to make it a hat-trick of titles with United, he replied: "Not yet". This season, he has played 17 times but increasingly in the bigger games.

MARTIN: The question I was going to ask you is when one - that's a debatable point. "Also were gonna try to make sure every university's continued focus on getting these students out in four years". There's plenty of evidence, however, that the presence of SROs hurts our students - especially black, Latino, indigenous, disabled, and low-income students. "You don't see a lot of them". The fact is, we know the kinds of steps that have to be taken to do that. "This is just the beginning", Tyra Hemans said.

The U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote this week on a bill to give money for more security at schools, as the nation's lawmakers continue to search for legislative solutions to gun violence that can pass the Legislative Branch.

Jocelyn Samuels, a former acting assistant attorney general for civil rights who co-signed the 2014 guidance letter alongside Lhamon, said its goal was not to put an end to suspensions, but to "arm schools with the tools and information to get out in front of discipline problems before they needed to rely on suspensions or referrals to the criminal justice system". You can say that that's a fair thing to do. Overall, about half the grants go to programs directed at youth. A measure to ban assault weapons was ultimately voted down by the Florida Senate. The grants have gone to an array of school programs, including the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, rifle teams, hunting safety courses and agriculture clubs. I have teachers who have grave concerns for not only the students that are within those classrooms but also personnel. And we're looking for ways to do that now.

MARTIN: That's Florida state legislator Kamia Brown. "At 18, citizens are eligible to serve in the military - to fight and die by arms for the country", according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida.
