Here’s the FL House vote on whether to bring my HB 219 banning assault weapons + large capacity magazines out of committee to the floor for full debate/vote. #Sayfie #NeverAgain #ForThe49 #NoNRAMoney pic.twitter.com/BMqdgrVm15— Rep. Carlos G Smith (@CarlosGSmith) February 20, 2018
17 pp in Parkland were just murdered w/an AR-15, + the FL House just passed @RossSpano's HR 157 declaring PORN as a public heath risk. No, GUN VIOLENCE is a public health crisis + Spano blocked HB 219 banning assault weapons in his committee for 2 yrs. #GOPpriorities #Sayfie— Rep. Carlos G Smith (@CarlosGSmith) February 20, 2018
