A Florida City Commission on Aug. 18 shot down a resolution urging all heads of households to own a firearm. Belleview City Commissioners voted 4-1 against drafting the resolution in the city’s official format. Mayor Tammy Moore was the only member voting in favor of the resolution.

Moore emphasized that the resolution was not a mandate, but simply an encouragement. “I am in favor of people having guns and protecting themselves,” she said. “I am a hundred percent in favor of this ordinance.”
