Days before the shooting in the Ft. Lauderdale airport, a Florida legislator introduced a bill to let people carry guns into airport terminals, Raw Story reports.
Republican State Sen. Greg Steube had the brilliant idea to expunge gun bans at airports, college campuses, and government meetings.
“If you want to kill as many people as possible before the cops arrive then you are likely to go to a place where law-abiding citizens can’t carry,” Steube argued when he presented the bill. “That’s what we’ve seen, time and time again and why I think we shouldn’t have them.”
Steube, of Sarasota, has been an NRA heartthrob for years, and was one of the loudest opponents to gun-free zones throughout his tenure in the Florida House of Representatives.
