Mayor Weinberger Statement in Response to Parkland, Florida School Shooting

Burlington, VT – Mayor Miro Weinberger today offered his response to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida:


“The school shooting in Parkland, Florida again demonstrates the deeply tragic and unacceptable inadequacy of the nation’s and Vermont’s gun laws. No other nation on earth tolerates these unbearable massacres and America should not, either. For over five years, since the slayings in Newtown, Connecticut, Vermont mayors have called on the legislature to pass universal background checks and prohibit military-style assault weapons like the one used to take 17 lives in Parkland. To date, virtually nothing has been done in Montpelier on the issue. Even modest steps towards common-sense gun safety at the local level, which had the support of a huge majority of Burlington voters, have been blocked. Vermonters have long been leaders on the moral questions of our times. We must lead on common-sense gun safety as well.”
