NRA Files Lawsuit Against New Legislation on Gun Control

  • After Florida Governor Rick Scott (a Republican) signed compromised gun control legislation (raising the age of buying guns from 18 years to 21 years) on Friday afternoon, NRA (National Rifle Association) has filed a federal lawsuit saying the new legislation violates the Second Amendment. While signing the legislation, Gov Scott praised the bill by saying that it balances individual rights with that of need for public safety. At the time of his speech, he was surrounded by the family members of 17 people killed during February 14 Florida school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
