One Year After Parkland Massacre, Student-Led Movement Celebrated for Renewed Progress on Anti-Gun Laws

Julia Conley, staff writer

Hours before Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was to mark the one-year anniversary of its deadly shooting, gun control groups applauded as major gun control legislation was advanced to the House floor for the first time in years—the latest stride in a renewed push for meaningful reform which has been led largely by Parkland survivors.

Meaningful Reform does not equal Anti-Gun Laws. Please change your headline Ms. Conley. Thanks

Well those background checks will make a difference. The mentally disturbed person will get denied or overlooked when they need counseling or detention, but they will get a background check for the one firearm they might purchase in a lifetime.
After maybe being denied the right to legally purchase that one gun, he can turn the corner and ILLEGALLY purchase one of the at least tens of millions of loose firearms available.
If this is the first step to gun safety in purchases we have many miles to go, and opposition all the way.

Ten hours to debate in committee what should have taken less than ten seconds to advance to a House vote, no debate necessary! Who—or rather, what—would stand in the way of sanity? And what are they doing in public office? (Those are rhetorical questions,y’all.)

Is anyone here even a little bit curious (as I am), as to why the gun massacres have all but stopped? I’m not complaining, but we went from an almost daily occurrence a year ago, to every now and then today. Explanation anyone?

Must be the tax cut everyone got. A little bs for the supper hour.
