Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement after the House voted on concealed carry reciprocity legislation while not taking action on bump stocks:

“I have always been a strong supporter of protecting Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens. I also support efforts to strengthen the NICS system and provide law-abiding Americans with the means to protect themselves from criminals disregarding our nation’s laws. However, the refusal to meaningfully address dangerous bump stocks in this legislation ‎is inexplicable and contrary to the position held by most Americans and the overwhelming majority of responsible gun owners. Bump stocks and other devices like them allow people to circumvent existing laws and can turn legal firearms into instruments of mass murder. They should be strictly regulated if not outright banned.”
