Democratic Progressive Caucus Calls on Florida Senate to Put Children First   
 
Tampa - Susan Smith, President of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida, has released the following statement:
Even though students, teachers, and parents spoke with passion and purpose to the Senate Rules Committee today, the vote on the gun bill once again proved that the only person who matters to the legislative majority and some Democrats is Marion Hammer, lobbyist for the weapons manufacturers.
One by one, the speakers literally begged for their lives or the lives of their children in support of a ban on assault weapons. But their desperate pleas to reduce the number of guns fell on deaf ears.
The Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida urges the Florida Senate to start putting the lives of Florida's children first. Show courage and stand up to the NRA. Vote for sensible gun regulation. If you don't, as one speaker said, the blood of future victims of gun violence will be on your hands.
