Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, along with Tampa police chief Mary O’Connor, joined mayors from across the country at the White House last week to celebrate the passage of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act.
“This important bipartisan and sensible legislation is a great first step that will reduce gun violence in our country,” Castor said. “It will help keep guns out of the hands of people who should not have them, including a red-flag law, similar to what was passed in Florida.”
The bill strengthens red flag laws, strengthens measures for young people buying guns and denies firearms to domestic abusers.
