Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Friday new regulations on gun sales and school safety in response to the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. The bill raises the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21, extends a three-day waiting period for handgun purchases to include long guns, and bans bump stocks that allow guns to mimic fully automatic fire. It also creates a program to enable teachers and other school employees to carry handguns.
