Miami Police Chief Art Acevedo reacted to Sunday’s targeted attack on rapper ABMG Spitta’s album release party by calling for universal background checks.
Breitbart News reported that two people were killed and over 20 injured when three individuals got out of a Nissan Pathfinder and opened fire on a crowd outside a Miami banquet hall Sunday morning. The incident occurred around 12:3o a.m.
Acevedo told CBS’s Face the Nation, “It’s just an indication of the problem we have with the scourge of gun violence in this country, that we have to do much more at the federal level to stop.”
He later added, “We need to have universal background checks. We need to make burglarizing these licensed gun stores a federal crime with mandatory sentencing. We need the federal government and both sides to address these issues.”
