Florida H 6061

Local Regulation of Firearms and Ammunition

by Ben Diamond (D)

LEAP Forward Position: Support

When it comes to gun violence, local laws serve the important purpose of addressing the unique issues and dangers facing each different community. When a higher level of government takes regulatory power from a lower level, a dangerous gap builds between the people passing laws and those living with them every day—and in the case of gun regulation, that gap can be the difference between life and death.
