Florida lawmakers moved forward on gun legislation but rejected a ban on assault weapons Monday night.
Hundreds of activists rallied outside the state Capitol during a Senate committee meeting.
About half a dozen Democratic amendments, including a ban on assault-style weapons, were voted down.

The bill passed the committee with a 9-4 vote.
