(WASHINGTON TIMES) – State Rep. Randy Fine from Brevard County, Florida, said Thursday that the sponsor of the bill to proceed on gun control knew it would not pass, calling the move a “political stunt.”
“We actually read the laws before we pass them, and this motion would have forced us to vote on the bill no one had actually read. And frankly, it would have disenfranchised millions of Floridians, who on our bills, have the right to come and publicly testify on those bills as they move through committee,” Mr. Fine, Florida Republican, said on CNN.
The sponsor of the bill, Democratic Rep. Kionne McGhee, reportedly did not inform the legislature that he was going to push for a motion to proceed to debate on the gun bill on Tuesday.
“If it was a serious effort, and not a political stunt, the sponsor could’ve let us know a few days before that he was going to do this so we might have been able to read the bill,” Mr. Fine said.
He added that he did not know the students from Majory Stoneman Douglas High School were in the gallery and said if he had known, then he would have had a meeting with them.
