Rommel For State Representative

Today, a comprehensive plan was released by the Governor to increase safety measures in our schools. The tragedy in Parkland was heartbreaking and it is time we take the necessary steps to protect our students. This bipartisan plan of action increases safety measures in schools and emphasizes and allocates funds to the mental health issue. I have had the privilege of watching students and parents travel to Tallahassee this week to voice their concerns and opinions. My heart breaks for what these families have been through and I am encouraged by the plan of action set fourth to make sure these incidents are prevented. Continue to keep these families in your prayers, and know that the Florida Legislature is with you and working hard to make schools safer. ... See MoreSee Less

Good start... there is much more that can be done via gun reform. Please 🙏🏽🙏🏽 listen to these dear young people.

If you aren't for outright banning the AR15 and take a dime from the NRA you are dead to me.

I have to agree with Jason Eugenides. More needs to be done. Nothing in the summary of this bill regarding gun show loopholes, private sales of weapons among citizens without a middle man who can ensure legitimacy of the buyer, nothing on minimizing magazine capacity, nor anything on restricting non hunting rifles such as the AR-15 and similar. Notice, I say higher restrictions, not bans.

With 3 comments in the last 6 hours, a reply would be much appreciated.

Ban war weapons

We need to do more to protect students and teachers. We all know the homicide status in the USA. What few people are talking about is why are so many people are determined to kill others, why are so many people killing them self and overdosing. What is hard in our country now? Life was much harder in the 30's 40's 60's and 70's. We will do more to protect everyone but we must get to the root of the problem.

The plan has some very vague phrases - like "school hardening" -that I really want to know more about before I support the measure. I can tell you right now that if it is something the NRA wants, I am more than suspicious about it. Keep our students safe and keep guns out of schools. And tell me your plan in clear and specific terms. I am tired of being screwed over.

Do something or you will be voted out. Do you care more about our children than the NRA money and power? It seems you are on the side of the NRA, if so pack your stump, you are moving.

Bobby the country want weapons of war off our streets they need to be taken away and future sales banned!!! I hope lawmakers listen to the majority not right wing minority who still think we need a militia

You will be out of office w/o a semi-automatic ban. You are in bed with the NRA 👎
