Telephone lines and social media were open to take viewer calls and comments on Florida Governor Rick Scott’s (R) recent signing of a gun control bill. The bill was prompted by the February 14, 2018, Parkland, Florida, high school shooting in which 17 people were killed. The National Rifle Association was quick to respond to the bill, filing a lawsuit on the same day it was signed.
