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:

    It’s typical liberal brainwashing to use the emotionalism of children to create policy; policy they’re sure is in line with their progressive views. Notice how conservative children are never “listened” to!

    Yet again the constitutional RIGHT’S of American citizens have been violated.! The RIGHT’S of the American citizen’s are NOT NEGOTIABLE they can NOT be abridged American children were murdered the the elites / anti-America globalists for the soul purpose of striping the 2nd amendment from the bill of right’s and disarm us so we can’t fight back. The problem with unconstitutional law’s is this. WE the American people have the absolute RIGHT to refuse to submit we have the absolute RIGHT to disobey them.! I will NOT surrender I will NOT comply I will NOT obey.!

    The cowards that stood outside while children were being killed have blood on their hands! The NRA had nothing to do with it! Those cowards who stood outside while 17 people were being murdered did nothing! They could have saved lives but they hid behind a car! Shame on them for the rest of their lives!

    I agree with her, these kids have been used bye the media and politicians to further their agenda of eliminating people owning guns all together, that will never happen. I feel for these kids and what they went through, nobody should have to go through this in our country but ware is the outrage over the true cause of these shootings, MENTAL health, drugs, both legal and illegal, rewarding kids for failor, Hell i’m not even going to go into the rest of the reasons, I will add that if you blame these shootings on guns you are just plain STUPID, we had guns when I was growing up and these shooting did not happen. Guns have not changed, people, families have, government has, there is nothing that proves this more then the comments from people saying it’s guns or the NRA that’s responsible for all these shootings and at the same time supporting all the murders of babies. you people make me sick.

    Lawmaker has a point, but one of personal opinion that best be confined inside her home behind closed doors with her husband (where her children, if any, cannot hear her) … most inappropriate remarks in public and the timing and occasion even more inappropriate …. ”the children” are actually correct and she needs to learn to listen to all ”children” of all ages because most have something to say of importance ..
