Florida governor defies Trump, signs landmark gun-control bill
Florida Gov. Rick Scott
London, March 9, 2018 (AltAfrika)-Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed a sweeping $400 million school safety bill, enacting significant gun-control measures in the state for the first time since the GOP took control of the legislature more than two decades ago.
But the staunch Republican and longtime NRA member did not use his line-item veto authority to remove funding for what many consider the most contentious part of the bill — a program that allows school employees to bring firearms on campus.
