Florida House of Representatives Says Porn Is a Threat  Guns OK  Less Than a Week After Parkland Shooting That Killed 17 florida house votes jpg

You literally couldn’t make this shit up if you tried. Less than a week after the Florida high school shooting that killed 17, the Florida House voted to make porn a public health threat. PORN. I must have missed the news coverage of the shooter using titty magazines to strike down his classmates and teachers. To pour salt on the wound, this astronomically stupid vote came less than an hour after the same Florida House of Representatives declined to even HEAR a bill that would ban assault rifles. I should note that many of the “lawmakers” who participated in both votes have constituents who were burying the bullet-riddled bodies of their kids that day. Florida, am I right?!

The Tuesday session opened with a motion to consider a bill banning assault rifles.

It isn’t surprising, considering less than a week earlier, a former student used an assault rifle to murder 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. If ever there was a time, right? Well, NOT IN FLORIDA. That motion was rejected, 36-71 in less than three minutes. Remember, this wasn’t a bill to actually ban assault rifles. This was simply a motion to CONSIDER a bill in a future session. Apparently the House subscribes to the belief that if you don’t acknowledge a problem, it doesn’t exist!

To add insult to injury, the same Florida House voted less than an hour later to make porn a public health risk. Porn. Not guns! Porn. Because porn kills so many people nowadays.

That GOP-backed bill passed with a voice vote, so we don’t have the yea or nay role to find out exactly which of those motherfuckers voted on yea this. In an especially heartbreaking turn, survivors of the Valentine’s Day shooting watched this all go down in the visitor’s gallery. Can you even imagine? Democratic Representative Carlos Guillermo-Smith criticized the GOP and the bill. He told The Associated Press, “He [Representative Ross Spano] was saying porn as a health risk was more important to address here in the Florida Legislature than the epidemic of gun violence. These are their priorities. I don’t understand the politics, to be honest, if I’m being honest. I’m not aware there’s a base of voters who are losing sleep every night over the epidemic of pornography as a public health crisis.”

So there you have it. In Florida, home to TWO of the worst mass shootings in the last two years, porn is bad, but guns are fine. No word yet on what Ted “PornHub” Cruz has to say about the vote.
