Barbara Jordan's Gun Control Resolutions Postponed By Miami-Dade County Commissioners

A Miami-Dade County Commissioner has proposed six resolutions to combat gun violence on the heels of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, but no one's hearing it -- at least, not yet.

Barbara Jordan (D-Miami Gardens) added the resolutions before Tuesday's county commission meeting, hoping the county would vote to urge Congress and state legislators to enact further gun controls after the massacre, which claimed the lives of 20 children and seven adults.

The resolutions are currently slated for discussion January 23rd at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center building Downtown.
