Florida Officially Declared Porn A Health Risk Just Because

Florida lawmakers on Tuesday passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health risk, less than an hour after they rejected a motion to consider a bill that would ban assault rifles.

Rep. Carlos Guillermo-Smith, who had been trying to ban assault weapons in Florida for two years, questioned Spano about his absurd attempt at distraction, asking if pornography has caused physical injury to anyone or was so traumatic that witnesses had to seek counseling for it.

It later passed the resolution claiming that porn is unsafe.

About 100 survivors from the high school traveled 450 miles from Parkland to the state capital to speak to legislators Wednesday.

Even when public health risk measures do pass, 'there's not a lot of teeth to that legislation, it's just symbolic, ' said Elizabeth Nolan Brown, an associate editor at Reason magazine who covers sex during a segment on Fox news on Monday.

In the same hearing, Florida lawmakers supported an utterly unnecessary bill that "recognizes public health risk created by pornography & acknowledges need for education, prevention, research, & policy change to protect citizens of this state".


But, he says that the voices of the students who have descended upon Tallahassee in recent days shows promise.

They are also planning a mass rally March 24 in Washington, D.C., to demand an end to gun violence and school shootings.

Following the House session, residents tweeted with emotionally-charged reactions over the lawmakers' apparent priorities in the wake of Florida's deadliest school shooting in history.

She added that gun issues need to be addressed, but the "real thing that needs to be addressed are issues of the heart". "I mean _INTO_. Can we declare gun porn a health risk?"

"It was just so heartbreaking to see how many (voters') names were up there, especially after it was my school", said 16-year-old Sheryl Acquaroli, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

"They had a chance to stop it today", she said. He promised to push for that kind of legislation while on the campaign trail in 2016 after the last major mass shooting in his state - the Pulse Nightclub massacre that left 49 dead - and has been stonewalled by Republicans since.
