Scott signs school safety bill
The NRA'slawsuit says "This blanket ban violates the fundamental rights of thousands of responsible, law-abiding Florida citizens and is thus invalid under the Second and Fourteenth Amendments".
It raises the minimum age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 and creates a waiting period on sales.
Scott previously said he believed it was the job of the police to protect students at teachers from shooters.

The Parkland parents and students were instrumental in the passage of Florida's first gun restrictions in almost two decades, said Rep. Jared Moskowitz, a Coral Springs Democrat who graduated from Douglas High and served on the Parkland city commission.
"Allows law enforcement to seize firearms when a person has been detained under the "Baker Act.' Also prohibits a person who has been "adjudicated mentally defective" or who has been 'committed to a mental institution" from owning or possessing a firearm". "You know, when I was younger, the organization seemed to be primarily focused on gun safety and hunters' rights".
Until the Parkland shooting, Scott was championed by the NRA as a defender of gun rights.
"We support the bill", Fusco said. "There is now going to be a real conversation about how we make our schools safe".
Cruz faces 17 murder counts and 17 attempted murder counts in the shooting.
