Press Release

Cities suing the State to infringe on citizens right to self-defense is Political Posturing – not a solution.

The Libertarian Party of Broward County thinks it is unacceptable that 10 cities in South Florida are using taxpayer money on legal obligations just for the purpose of political posturing. These Public Funds will go to Lawyers instead of improving the security of local schools or reducing citizens’ local taxes. The mayor of Coral Gables felt that this was an unnecessary expenditure: “The monetary exposure was too much.” The real problem is Gun Free Zones where most of the Mass Casualty events are taking place. Ultimately, disarming citizens would leave us vulnerable to criminals with no guarantee of improvement to the public’s safety.
