Pretty hard to act when you've got the NRA's hand up your ass.

I wanted to stress that this is not political. If I thought for one moment that if we banned assault weapons then all of these tragedies would end, you would have me. I would be with you. But are we going to ban fertilizer, which is what they used in the Oklahoma bombing? Are we going to ban pressure cookers, which is what they used in the Boston massacre? Are we going to ban the multiple handguns that were used in other assaults? Are we going to ban the sawed-off shotguns what was used in Columbine?

It's not the weapon. It's the evil from within. And unfortunately, Senator Stewart said, at the very beginning of her debate, when we say "thoughts and prayers," it's frowned upon. And I take real offense at that, because thoughts and prayers are really the only thing that's gonna stop the evil from within the individual who is taking up their arms to do this kind of a massacre. So I will continue to do the thoughts and prayers, but in addition to that, I'm also going to do a comprehensive plan that Senator Galvano has spent hours and days, weeks actually, working on.

We're gonna look at the weapons which to a level of comfort past me, but I'm willing to move to a degree to say, You've gotta be twenty-one before you can have it, to make sure that person has a little more maturity in their life. Looking to the individual and their mental health to make sure that we're trying to make sure this individual is someone who we've done everything we can in our power to try and catch 'em early, to try to change the trajectory of their life, when they've come from a broken home or whatever situation that they've had, to help them not have the desire to do these kinds of acts. We're gonna look at law enforce[?] for the ones that we've missed who've still got to that point who wanna do these things, to harden our schools. If we haven't hardened the school enough to have armed people there, just as the very last resort to stop 'em.

So this is a comprehensive plan. It's not just the weapon. It is all of it. It's comprehensive. But in my opinion, the one thing that will actually change this the most is the one thing that has become fighting words, which is to say "thoughts and prayers." So that's something I'm gonna continue to add to my comprehensive plan, that we can hopefully stop the evil that is happening from within our world.

--Florida State Sen. Kelli Stargel (R)

The Boston Massacre? I know they MEANT the Boston Marathon bombing, but I don't think they had pressure cookers in the 18th century...
Excuse me, sir, do you have a minute to talk about your lord and savior, Hannibal Barca?

Yeah, if the pagans are so smart, why did Jesus invade Pagan-land on the back of a dragon and kill them all!

Somewhat related, that student walkout is happening tomorrow (later today actually I guess, since it's past midnight now) because it marks one month after the Parkland massacre.
