Don’t expect Friday’s massacre of first graders to nudge Florida in the direction of gun control, not even on assault weapons. Washington is one thing. Tallahassee is something else.
Rep. Dennis Baxley, who chairs the state House Judiciary Committee, says the problem in schools is that there are not enough guns.
“In our very admirable zealous desire to make people safe, we created these gun-free zones, and we have inadvertently made them a target for this kind of activity,” said Baxley, R-Ocala.
