Florida House refuses to debate guns, declares porn dangerous

“Unfortunately, just five days after 17 people were gunned down at a Florida school, the Florida House just passed a bill that declares pornography a ‘public health risk,’” state Rep. Carlos Guillermo Smith (D) told the Independent. “Basically, what they have determined is that these are the Republican priorities in 2018: Wasting our time with debate and legislation that declares porn as a health threat. Meanwhile we can’t even get a single debate, vote or hearing on anything related to assault weapons.”

“That’s really sad,” he added.

Tuesday’s session opened with state Rep. Kionne McGhee (D) asking for a procedural change to allow the House to consider the bill banning assault weapons, which was assigned to three committees but had not yet been scheduled for a hearing.

“I ask that you keep this bill and the conversation about the solution to combat mass shootings alive,” McGhee declared. “The shooting at Parkland demands extraordinary action.”

The House voted down the motion 71 to 36 within three minutes as survivors of the shooting watched from the gallery of the Capitol.

They are not driven by emotions unlike leaders in shithole countries like yours who react in a knee jerk fashion without plans for a follow through. December saw grisly accidents that we responded to in the best way we know; stupidly. Do you see any of the measures working today barely two months later? Do your leaders even remember that there are houses that were to be brought down for being a hazard to citizens? They are waiting for them to collapse on your big empty head for them to act.

:D:D:Dif porn was dangerous 90% ya hii kijiji wangekuwa wamezikwa kitambo sana…

Edit

Kuna a fella called Dalrock anasema the Left is also being disingenious. When it’s a Muslim terrorist like the gay club shooting, they’re very okay with “thoughts and prayers” while the Right is busy calling for bans. But sasa wanasema prayers are not enough because gun control, while of course the Right is happy to play that card.

That vote wasn’t even close. Crackers love their guns

Do youy have an example of the right calling for bans? What happened in Florida is the right (and right of center left) deliberately quashing any form of debate on the subject.

Maybe I wasn’t clear. If it’s a Muslim shooting, the Left is okay with thoughts and prayers but the Right calls for banning Muslims, etc from entering US.

But if it’s a white (or in this case Hispanic) shooter, where the solution is gun control, the Right sasa ndio wanaongea kuhusu thoughts and prayers while the Left wants action.

Aha!! Understood, and you’re right about the contradictory stances depending on the perpetrator.

I think a lot of young people will vote in the coming elections this time around. They are irked and this is just fuel for the fire. Even Trump knows it. He never said anything about guns after the shooting but when the florida kids had their rally he puts out a statement to ban bump stocks. Strategic but damage has been done.

Elections ziko more than a year away. Na vile humans and their short memories. But a person can hope. Trump pia loves throwing people under the bus, who knows this time it might be the NRA.

Trump is going to be president for 2 full terms. All he has to do is sign an executive order to make it illegal to buy AR-15 and fence-sitters/independents will go to his side.

I was thinking more of the primaries later this year. I know it’s not a real election but it will affect the type of candidates being chosen.

Sometimes kuwa inconsistent means you can’t be consistently bad, and end up doing something good sometimes. Let’s hope he keeps this up.
