Miami-Dade County Chairman Esteban Bovo, Jr. statement on the tragedy in Broward County

MIAMI-DADE – It is with great sorrow, that we join our Broward County neighbors in the aftermath of this tragic and needless loss of life. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those affected by the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School yesterday.

While I strongly support our nation’s 2nd amendment, a review of laws that make an AR15 weapon so easy to purchase or accessible is appropriate and warranted. We must insist on more public resources for mental illness and improve security in our schools. Furthermore, we have the responsibility to review how these types of crimes can be prevented.
