A week after 17 people were killed in a shooting at a Parkland, Florida school, the state legislature is facing backlash over dropping a gun control bill yet finding time to debate the ills of pornography.

In Tuesday’s session, the Florida House of Representatives voted 36-71 against passing House Bill 219 in a matter of three minutes. The bill would have prohibited the sale of assault weapons and large-capacity magazines and required “certificates of possession” for lawfully-possessed firearms, among other measures.

The bill had not been heard in the House committees since representative Kionne McGhee, [D-Miami] submitted it last October. A January 10 senate bill was likewise ignored.

An hour later, Rep. Ross Spano turned the lawmakers’ attention to more pressing matters: pornography. The bill (HR 157) argued that it was “creating a public health risk” and was “contributing to the hypersexualization of children and teens.” "Research has found a correlation between pornography use and mental and physical illnesses, difficulty forming and maintaining intimate relationships, unhealthy brain development and cognitive function, and deviant, problematic or dangerous sexual behavior," Spano argued before the House Health & Human Services Committee in January.

His proposal passed by a voice vote.

Representative Carlos Guillermo-Smith, a Democrat, angrily pointed out the bill was irrelevant. “[Spano] was saying porn as a health risk was more important to address here in the Florida Legislature than the epidemic of gun violence," he said, according to The Hill. "I'm not aware there's a base of voters who are losing sleep every night over the epidemic of pornography as a public health crisis." The motion triggered public outcry over the priorities of Florida lawmakers. Many survivors of the Parkland high school massacre were present in the House gallery and voiced their outrage, calling the vote “heartbreaking." Guillermo-Smith later tweeted that seventeen people were murdered with an AR-15 assault rifle and that gun violence was the greater threat.

The US mission in the capital of Montenegro has urged people to avoid the area amid unconfirmed reports of a grenade attack in the vicinity of the diplomatic premises. “The US Embassy in Podgorica advises US citizens there is an active security situation at the US Embassy in Podgorica,” the US embassy in Montenegro said. “Avoid the Embassy until further notice.” The police blocked Revolution Boulevard where the country’s National Security Agency and the US embassy are located. The details of the incident are yet unclear, but initial reports suggested that at least one attacker detonated either an improvised explosive device or a grenade in the area.

One person has been killed in the incident, reportedly one of the attackers, according to a police source, citedby Cafe del Montenegro news. Meanwhile, Analitika news portal reports that the attacker allegedly blew himself up after throwing a hand grenade in the direction of the US embassy. “There was an incident,” a police official confirmed to Reuters, providing no further details. Citizens in the area reportedly heard at least two explosions.

The dollar is printed out of thin air, causing inflation and backed by nothing; it has no value.

Bitcoin is: mathematically mined, as scarce as gold and backs all cryptocurrencies; it's value is immeasureable. Deflation is good.
