Florida Legislature declares pornography a health risk

Lawmakers passed a bill that same day that would require public schools to display the motto "In God We Trust".

Both bills state that the motto should be displayed "in a conspicuous place".

A yes vote (Y) was a vote to remove the bill from all committees and to debate it on the House floor.

As hundreds of Parkland, Florida shooting survivors looked on, the Florida House of Representatives last night rejected a motion to consider a ban on assault rifles and less than an hour later passed a bill to declare porn a public health risk.

In Tuesday's session, the Florida House of Representatives voted 36-71 against passing House Bill 219 in a matter of three minutes.

A similar law requiring "In God We Trust" posters in Arkansas public school classrooms recently went into effect, and similar proposals have been introduced in Oklahoma and SC.

A former student is accused of entering Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on February 14 and killing 17 people.

She said she had a vision earlier in the week.

"Today was draining and frustrating but it was also awesome at the same time", the teen tweeted along with a photo she took with Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives Carlos G. Smith, who sponsored the legislation. "Has anyone ever been killed as a result of the health implications of pornography?" he asked Spano, according to the New York Times. She acknowledged that "gun issues" need to be addressed, but defended the bill, the Tampa Bay Times reported. "He is not black or white", Daniels said. And its not gun control.

Stoneman Douglas High School students react to their legislators' complete refusal to help protect them from gun violence.

Democrat Kimberly Daniels (who also runs a ministry) sponsored the bill.
