Curbelo pledged to work with Democratic Florida Rep. Ted Deutch to enact “new laws, stronger laws that protect rights for responsible citizens, people who are responsible gun owners, but will prevent those who want to do harm to innocent people from obtaining these weapons.”

WATCH:

Curbelo blamed “congressional leaders, especially in [his] party” from preventing new legislation “to come to the floor to debate.”

The Florida congressman had previously co-sponsored new gun control legislation following the mass shootings in both Orlando and Las Vegas.
