Small steps are being taken to eliminate the amount of violence that exists in our society.

The Florida House gave final passage to a $400 million gun control and safety bill on Wednesday in defiance of the National Rifle Association, which opposed to change firearm restrictions after 17 students were killed in Florida.

The bill is now heading to the governor and it proposes to  raise the minimum age to purchase any firearm to 21; impose a three-day waiting period on gun purchases; fund school police officers and mental health counselors; and allow local school districts and sheriffs to arm certain school personnel.

This new bill was passed after many years of longing but parents and students in Florida that were victims of the massacre were not happy with it as it did not cover all the things that they hoped were going to be addressed.
