City Council Passes Resolution Urging Congress to Ban Bump Stocks

The Mayor and Tucson City Council last night voted to ask state and federal lawmakers to ban bump stocks like those used in the recent Las Vegas shootings or to allow the City to enact its own ban. Bump stocks make semi-automatic weapons capable of fully-automatic fire.

Vice Mayor Regina Romero and Ward 6 Tucson City Council Member Steve Kozachik introduced the resolution, saying local ordinances reflect the wishes of Tucson residents. Arizona law prevents municipalities from passing ordinances that conflict with state laws.
