As in mass shootings elsewhere, the massacre of 49 people at an Orlando gay nightclub is raising questions about access to guns – and to assault rifles in particular.r People charged with or convicted of a felony can't buy guns.Whether Florida gets its gun laws right depends on the perspective. Former Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey believes the state gets it right. He ran the agency that conducts background checks for gun purchases.
