The Flordia house voted down a motion to take up an assault weapons ban

They pretty much told the kids 'no way'. My advice to the students: vote 'em out!

Sorry, didn't see that this had already been posted.

1. Something about these Headlines are frustrating

In this era of polarized politics, I find it lazy and frankly disingenuous to simply put "Florida House" or Congress. These votes are falling on a party line. The headlines should say that.


It would be easy to vote 'em out if we knew who it was. The DEMS are the good guys. We should report that whenever we can.

2. I agree.

The article didn't go into that much detail. My hope is that the voters of Florida will look into how this vote went down and act accordingly.

4. The kids are going to learn something very early in their new fight for freedom

They are going to have to become political to win. Specifically, left, Democrat, activist, and be prepared to help assure that ALL their newly turning 18 year old friends make it to the ballot box. An$ they are going to need a lot of help from adults that share their passion to navigate their way through the system.

They were interviewed last night on Lawrence O’Donnell. One of them resisted to come out in favor of a political party. I couldn’t help but chuckle at that response as I thought to myself about how he (they) are just now getting ready to discover who the enemy is for the first time in their young lives.

3. It never made it out of committee.

Worthless POS's.
