Happy Monday. GMF was awesome, cold and rain and all.

FRIDAY, MARCH 9:

Florida Governor and amateur Nosferatu cosplayer Rick Scott signed Florida's controversial gun control bill into law, and the NRA sued about 12 seconds later, because the NRA has literally been allowed to dictate how the American government writes its laws for literal decades. This is how your sausage gets made. How do you like your sausage?

Speaking of the NRA, Broward County schools have decided to stop accepting its donations in the wake of the Parkland shooting, because that money's bloody.

The Florida legislature passed a bill making it illegal for persons under the age of 17 to get married, because it's not the 1800s anymore and also common sense is no longer a thing.
