Gun control advocates in Florida had a clear message for their lawmakers as they voted down a measure that would have banned the sale of assault weapons like the one used to kill 17 people on Valentine's Day.


"Vote them out!" the crowd shouted as the Florida State Senate rules committee killed the ban 7-6.

The protesters, many of whom wore orange shirts bearing the hashtag #GunReformNow, also reportedly shouted "shame, shame, shame."
