Hello everyone,
I have a PHP Laravel CRUD application I made where I am using MVC style. I have controllers views and models. My database migration is made and my table in the database is made with php artisan migrate. I am using php 7.3 and laravel 5.8.
On my create view I go to create a single object in my database and my errors are thrown saying nothing in text box (no input) If I comment out the errors then just I click my submit button and nothing happens nothing is entered into my db. I have looked at many different crud examples and I am not sure why my object isn’t being created. Here is what I have
//view create
<section id="section-content" class="text-center">
    <div class="container contentdiv rounded">
        <div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-12">
                <div class="pb-2 mt-4 mb-2 border-bottom clearfix">
                    <h2>Create Contact</h2>
                <div >
                    <a class="btn btn-success" href="{{route('contacts.index')}}">Back</a>
            <!-- <div class="col-md-10 mx-auto">
                    <div class="alert alert-danger">
                            @foreach($errors->all() as  $error)
                                <li>{{ $error }}</li>
                    </div><br />
            </div> -->
<div class="row">
            <div class="col-md-10 mx-auto mt-3">
                <form method="POST" action="{{ route('') }}">
                    <div class="form-group row">
                        <label for="txtfn" class="col-sm-3">First Name:</label>
                        <div class="col-sm-9">
                            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="txtfn" id="txtfn"/>
                    <div class="form-group row">
                        <label for="txtln" class="col-sm-3">Last Name:</label>
                        <div class="col-sm-9">
                            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="txtln" id="txtln"/>
                    <div class="form-group row">
                        <label for="txtem" class="col-sm-3">Email:</label>
                        <div class="col-sm-9">
                            <input type="text" class="form-control" name="txtem" id="txtem"/>
                    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary">Create Contact</button>

my env is setup correctly

What I have tried:

I started out getting an error I had to change a setting in appservice to allow a defaultstringlength to run my program correctly
It runs without errors Just now i want to simply create an object in my db
my input somehow isnt being found in my textboxes? im not sure

I put the var dump in the store method
and nothing happened
If I insert a row manually then the row appears in my index and I get can get and show the row with the correct data in my show view. Only I cannot update and create it. I can also delete a record successfully

like this

$contact = new Contact([
'first_name' => var_dump($request->get('first_name')),
