ORLANDO, Fla. — On Monday, mayors from different states sent a letter to the Senate calling for gun safety legislation to be passed.
The U.S. Conference of Mayors consists of mayors from various states across the country, including Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.
The mayors asked the Senate to help prevent more cities from experiencing the impacts of gun violence and shootings.
“As mayors of cities that have had mass shootings this year, we write to urge the Senate to pass during the lame duck session gun safety legislation that has passed the House and is currently pending in the Senate. We can tell you firsthand of the devastating impact these shootings have had on our residents and on our cities. While we will never recover from them completely, we must try to prevent them from happening in other cities in the future,” the mayors wrote in the letter.
