The Florida Pop-Tart Law

 Dennis Baxley, Republican-Florida

Tampa Bay Times:
TALLAHASSEE — A pair of high-profile, NRA-supported gun bills won the support of the Florida House on Thursday.
One proposal seeks to extend "stand your ground" immunity to people who fire a warning shot or threaten to use other deadly force in cases of self-defense.
The second bill would prevent children from facing severe punishments for playing with simulated weapons in schools. It specifically permits the use of pastries as pretend pistols.

The so-called Pop-Tart bill (HB 7029) passed by a 98-17 vote. Only Democrats voted against it.
Rep. Dennis Baxley, the Ocala Republican sponsoring the bill, said the measure would bring "common sense" back to zero-tolerance discipline policies in school.

When the Republicans take over, we shall view the amusements of destruction again.
I'm looking forward to it.
