"I'm sure there are NRA members that agree with this bill, some that don't agree with this bill". The NRA argues the ban imposes an "impermissible burden" on the gun rights of women, who according to the lawsuit "pose a relatively slight risk of perpetrating a school shooting such as the one that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, or, for that matter, a violent crime of any kind".

In this image taken from a video monitor, Nikolas Cruz, center, a former student accused of opening fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on February 14, appears in magistrate court via video conference from jail on Friday, March 9, 2018, for his initial appearance on attempted murder charges that were added by the grand jury, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The goal of the group he is forming, he told TIME in an interview Monday, is to ensure that Congress passes a gun control package by the end of the year - that both contains and builds on provisions in the bill Florida Gov. Rick Scott signed into law last week - while maintaining support for the Second Amendment.

Hours later, the National Rifle Association filed a federal lawsuit to block it.

The bill's passage by a Republican-controlled legislature in a state where the NRA wields considerable influence is seen as a testament to an impassioned pro-gun control campaign launched by young survivors of the shooting and parents of the victims. Democrats have said they will vote for the proposal, but have slammed GOP leaders for not doing more.

Families of the victims watched as Scott signed the measure into law. "We represent a wide variety of stakeholders", he said.

Florida lawmakers passed the new regulations in the aftermath of a mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 students and educators dead. The alleged gunman is a 19-year-old former male student who legally bought the AR-15-style rifle used in the deadly attack. It also creates a so-called guardian program enabling some teachers and other school employees to carry guns.

But Hammer said Scott's standing with the NRA and gun owners has dropped dramatically. Just days after the shooting, they began holding rallies, lobbying lawmakers and harnessing the power of social media in support of reform.

That age difference has become a flash point in gun policy debates following the Parkland shooting. "You should be proud".

The bill would attempt to curb school violence by providing more training for school officials and local law enforcement to respond to mental health crises, as well as, among other things, money to develop anonymous reporting systems for threats and deterrent measures like metal detectors and locks. "And that's healthy in our democracy", he said.

"I believe we have to recognize that we want to protect everybody's rights, but we also want to protect our kids and our grandkids at school", Scott said.
