The Palm Beach Post Editorial Board defended State Senate President Bill Galvano for his work on common-sense gun legislation. Following the shooting in Parkland, Galvano worked to pass several gun safety bills and is currently working on one last bill: to expand background checks and end the "gun show loophole."

However, doing so, and accepting contributions from Everytown for Gun Safety, has earned him criticism from the NRA and prominent Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr., who called him a RINO (Republican in Name Only) and Matt Gaetz.

The Editorial Board noted that the background check bill is not "gun grabbing" Florida has suffered too many mass shootings to not take stronger action to prevent gun violence and bemoaned the influence of the NRA.
