  • PRIDE FUND: FLORIDA LEGISLATURE GUN REFORMS A GOOD START, BUT FALL SHORT OF ENDING THE VIOLENCE

    March 07, 2018 — Washington, DC — Pride Fund to End Gun Violence, the nation’s only LGBTQ political action committee dedicated to gun violence prevention, issued the following statement from founder and executive director Jason Lindsay in response to the Florida Legislature’s passage of a modest gun reform package:

    “Despite the tragic circumstances that brought them to take this historic step, we’re encouraged the Florida Legislature finally acted to reform the state’s gun laws. More importantly, we appreciate that members bucked the NRA to pass this bill. However, the glaringly obvious solutions to the violence, murder and mayhem the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School witnessed — a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines — are not included. Further, arming school personnel as a deterrent is a fallacy that will lead to even more tragedy. That’s a shame, and we will look back on those shortfalls as another life and death decision.”
