This week I wrote to my senators and U.S. House representative, urging them to make sensible gun safety regulation their first priority in 2013. I also helped my county Democratic Party Chair to craft a proposal urging our county commission to pass an ordinance requiring background checks on all gun sales in our county. Florida law empowers county governments to close the “gun show loophole,” and in the coming weeks I will work with county Democrats to pass that common sense law.
