NRA sues Florida over plan to put age limits on rifle purchases
Mar 13, 2018, 06:00
The bill signed by Governor Scott raises the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21, extends a three-day waiting period for handgun purchases to include long guns and bans bump stocks, attachments that enable semiautomatic rifles to approximate the firing speed of fully automatic ones.
In a story March 11 about the NRA lawsuit following new sweeping gun reform in Florida, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the voting age is 21. "I'm going to fight for the Second Amendment, but I'm going to fight to make sure that our kids are safe in this state", Scott said. And that's something fellow Republican hopeful and state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam agrees with.
"We applaud the leaders and members of the Florida Legislature that came together quickly to find common ground, putting aside their differences to move the bill forward", he said.

In the House, 19 Republicans were against and 57 were for the bill, while 31 Democrats were against and 10 were for the bill. Corcoran has received an A-plus rating from the NRA for the past several years and shakes off the lawsuit. "I'm not accusing them of pulling the trigger, but in some cases I think there is blood on their hands".
