Just Who Put the NRA Ahead of Kids?

    Thirty one members of the Florida Senate voted to deem the gun registration trust fund sacrosanct, making it illegal to raise the fund to fill the gaping holes in the budget. The senators didn't feel compelled to offer protection to other trust funds, including the Lawton Chiles Endowment Fund, which pours money from the tobacco lawsuit settlement into children health and welfare programs. Who voted for the fund? And who didn't. The NRA provides the scorecard, via e-mail addresses:

You did not mention that the legislature is passing a bill forbidding adoption agencies from asking whether prospective adoptive parents have guns at home. Of course, just like swimming pools, this was only to determine that the guns were secured safely. I just listened to a foolish woman I know describe her husband having several guns in open view in their living room. They have children regularly in their home. She said THE GUNS AREN'T LOADED. Famous last words. But the legislature believes gun possession is more important than safety.
