Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) wavered Thursday over whether he would sign a gun reform bill presented to him by the state legislature. On Wednesday, the Florida House voted 67-50 to pass the legislation after debating for nearly eight hours; the bill cleared the Senate 20-18 earlier this week. Under the proposal, a person must be at least 21 years old to buy a gun and would have to wait three days before obtaining the weapon. The bill also would set aside $400 million for mental health and school safety programs. "I'm going to take the time and I'm going to read the bill and I'm going to talk to families," Scott said. He has 15 days to make a decision.
