Outrage as Florida Lawmaker Tells House Not to Let Parkland ‘Children’ Write Gun Control Legislation

While the Florida State House was debating the gun bill, one state representative made it clear that it is the elected officials who are going to make the laws, not the students-turned-activists who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

“We’ve been told that we need to listen to the children and do what the children ask. Are there any children on this floor?” state Rep. Elizabeth Porter (R) asked Wednesday. “Are there any children making laws? Do we allow the children to tell us that we should pass a law that says no homework, or you finish high school at the age of 12 just because they want it so?

“No. The adults make the laws because we have the age, we has the wisdom, and we have the experience,” she continued.

The final bill that was passed by the state House included provisions that raised the age to purchase rifles from 18 to 21, allowed some school personnel to be armed during school hours, and banned the sale or possession of bump stocks, according to CNN.

People were not happy with the state representative’s notion:

    Most of the kids at that tender age only know what their parents talk about or tell them anyway. Largely, they parrot their parents’ discussions. So, in most part, you get the parents views.

    How many parents allow their children to tell them what to do? If you do that then you shouldn’t be a parent and the same abides here as with those in our government. This country would soon be no more if children were in charge. These kids aren’t even old enough to vote and you want them to make our laws? You are a special kind of stupid aren’t you.

    Imagine allowing children who have no idea what sex they are or what bathroom to use to make or write or influence any law? No way!!

    NRA members have kids in school or grand children and want them safe. The out lawing of the AR15 will in no way lessen the chance of future school shootings by people with mental issues. Thanks to the liberals for closing the mental asylums tears ago releasing the people to the streets creating a massive homeless problem besides the danger these people afford America.

    The libs continue to act on “emotions” instead of facts and logic. They are going to get us all killed if we keep electing these idiots. How about you talk to kids and get some info and ideas and take it from there?
