Florida Governor Rick Scott on Friday signed into law a bill that would enforce a series of new gun control measures, reports the Tampa Bay Times.
Why it matters: This marks the first legislative steps on gun control that Florida has taken in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting, defying the NRA and setting a template for other states to follow.
What's in it:
Three-day waiting period for all firearm purchases.
Raises minimum age from 18 to 21.
Bans sale of bump stocks.
Allows judges to confiscate weapons from people deemed a threat.
Hundreds of millions in funding for mental health and school security.
