    Florida Gov. Rick Scott breaks with NRA to sign new gun regulations

    By Michael Scherer

    ... The new Florida law imposes a three-day waiting period for most purchases of long guns, raises the minimum age for buying those weapons to 21 and bans the possession of bump stocks, devices that can make semiautomatic weapons fire like fully automatic firearms. It does not address the demand of many Stoneman Douglas students for a ban on assault weapons.

    It Only Takes One Trump Tweet To Fall Into North Korea's Trap
