"He was saying porn as a health risk was more important to address here in the Florida Legislature than the epidemic of gun violence", Smith said.

On Tuesday, legislators declined to open up a debate on a bill that would ban military-grade assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines.

The decision not to consider an assault rifles ban on the state House floor outraged survivors of the massacre.

"It seemed nearly heartless how they immediately pushed the button to say no".

In the same session, less than an hour later, according to the newspaper, the legislature considered a GOP-backed bill to declare porn a public health risk, which it passed by a voice vote. Police say the gunman used an AR-15 assault rifle, purchased legally, to kill 17 people and injure 14 others at the school last Wednesday.

"I'm calling on every student/teacher/parent 2 exercise 1st Amendment Right & engage in sit-ins, protest, walkouts & legal demonstrations".

Attorneys for Cruz have said the 19-year-old will agree to plead guilty if the death penalty is taken off the table.

Though the government move attracted criticisms within the country and outside, the establishment was not anxious about it. The government has been tight-lipped, but it is believed that 100 million Petro coins would be equivalent to $ 6 billion .

"The only objective of an assault weapon like this is to kill, and to kill as many people as possible".

Last month we told you that Florida was on the verge of making this official, well, the state's House of Representatives approved the resolution by a vote on Tuesday, even though some members asked why in the hell this particular topic was being taken up at this time.

Those who already own an assault weapon could apply for a certificate of ownership. Thirty-six lawmakers supported it, while 71 voted no.

"Further context: the Census Bureau reports ages 18-29 turnout rate was 30 percent in 1974, the first midterm election 18-20 yr olds could vote (except in 4 states) and followed the close of the Vietnam War", McDonald tweeted.

In addition to the students who protested in person, scores of students and some teachers protested by walking out of schools across Florida on Wednesday. "We've got to be focusing on identifying those individuals". We're trying to save the lives of innocent children. "If you want to change the world start by voting".
