The leaders back the efforts by students and parents from Parkland and other communities demanding that state and federal legislators take action to ban the availability of assault weapons.

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (February 20, 2018) – In what may have been the largest gathering in recent memory of elected officials in support of any one issue, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio, joined by Congresswoman Lois Frankel and elected officials from across Palm Beach County, called for federal and state lawmakers to act immediately to prevent gun violence after the recent massacre in Parkland.

Speaking from the City Hall Courtyard on Tuesday, Mayor and Rep. Frankel co-hosted a press conference. They were joined by elected officials from Boca Raton to Palm Beach Shores; Angela Williams, founder of the Mothers Against Murderers Association; Mitchell and Drew Pinsky, student founders of 535 Letters for Change; and a Palm Beach League of Cities representative.

“This is the largest gathering of elected officials from our area in solidarity on this very recent issue that has touched our hearts so much,” said Mayor Muoio. “It goes to show you how important we think immediate action on this issue really is.”

With West Palm Beach City Commissioners and other legislators at her side, Mayor demanded better background checks and a ban on assault rifles. She noted overwhelming public support nationwide for reforms. She announced her intention to bring forth a resolution urging federal and state lawmakers to take action to end gun violence.

The leaders back the efforts by students and parents from Parkland and other communities demanding that state and federal legislators take action to ban the availability of assault weapons.

“It’s nice to have thoughts and prayers, but the time is for action,” said Frankel. “That’s why we should ban the sale of assault rifles, high capacity magazines, and bump stock devices.”

Mitchell and Drew Pinsky, students and co- founders of 535 Letters for Change, mailed every Member of Congress encouraging them to make schools safe.  

“We represent the students in the nation who are scared to be sitting in school”, said Mitchell Pinsky, a senior at Olympic Heights High School in Boca Raton. Rep. Frankel reminded the students she began her political career as a student protestor.

Angela Williams, founders of Mothers Against Murderers, also spoke to the large gathering of media.
