The following statement was issued on March 19, 2023 by the Miami Beach Democratic Club Board of Directors
The recent deadly shootings in Miami Beach make it clear - more guns on the street means more danger, more shootings, and more death in Florida. The Miami Beach Democratic Club Board of Directors strongly opposes Senate Bill 150 / House Bill 543 - the "More Guns Everywhere" AKA "Permitless carry" bill. This bill would absolutely put more guns on the street. We demand that our elected representatives Senator Ileana Garcia and Representative Fabian Basabe oppose this dangerous and deeply unpopular bill.
