Senator Rick Scott calls for Orlando’s Pulse Night Club to be made national memorial
ORLANDO, Fla.– It’s been almost five years since 49 people were shot and killed at the Pulse Night Club in Orlando.
Some lawmakers, like U.S. Senator Rick Scott want the site declared a national memorial.
“No one is in this country should be discriminated against, ever,” said Scott.
His comments come after many in Southwest Florida’s LGBTQ community felt they were being attacked by Governor Ron DeSantis on the first week of Pride month.
DeSantis signed a bill banning transgender girls from playing in girls sports. The next day he vetoed money meant for counseling survivors of the Pulse massacre.
“We need to talk about love rather than hate. We need to have compassion,” Senator Scott said.
Scott was governor when the Pulse massacre occurred.
“It was a horrible attack against our gay community. Our Hispanic community. It was horrible. It was a terrorist attack,” Scott said.
