Speak Up: Crazy gun policies in Florida


Thursday, February 22, 2018

In reference to the tragic school event in Florida, I wanted to begin by saying the perpetrator, a Floridan, was required to be at least 18 years of age to purchase an AR-15.

That is entirely too young for such a powerful weapon for a child.

However the caveat is that he could not purchase a beer in Florida.

He could purchase an AR-15 but could not purchase beer.

He also needed to be a little bit older to purchase a regular, ordinary pistol in Florida.

I cannot make this up.

I don't know what is going on with the lawmakers in Florida, but this is crazy.

Another neglected fact is did the gunman acquire interest in weapons from his parents?

That is never ever brought up and I think that is one of the key missing links.

Finally, the comment by our POTUS was a frivolous tweet, which was inappropriate and disrespectful.
