Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez supports Congressman Carlos Curbelo's bipartisan effort to ban bump stocks

MIAMI (October 06, 2017)

I support Congressman Carlos Curbelo's bipartisan effort to introduce legislation in the House of Representatives to ban bump stocks. While I continue to support Second Amendment rights, these devices circumvent existing laws and I strongly believe they should be banned. I thank Congressman Curbelo for leading this effort in the House and am hopeful that it will unite our elected officials in Washington as our nation mourns those who lost their lives in Las Vegas in yet another mass shooting.
