FDP Statement on SB 7026 Passing House


FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement after SB 7026 passed the Senate Monday evening:


“This is not the legislation the Parkland students fought for — this does not go far enough to protect our students from gun violence. What’s missing is real, comprehensive gun reform​ that will actually keep us safe, including universal background checks, closing the gun show loophole, and banning assault rifles.​ ​While the Garcia amendment may seem like it takes guns out of the classrooms — it ​is still placing more guns in schools by allowing school personnel such as custodians, bus drivers, librarians, counselors, coaches and others​ to carry.”
