MIAMI, FLORIDA – Breitbart News, which Florida Sen. Marco Rubio recently called a site that traffics in “conspiracy theories,” has uncovered a video that unequivocally proves he voted in favor of a gun ban in 1999.
The video backs up a charge leveled by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who accused Rubio of voting to “ban guns from city parks” when he served as commissioner in West Miami City in 1999. The Rubio campaign responded by calling Cruz a liar.
“Senator Cruz is getting increasingly desperate and giving up on trying to tell voters the truth,” the campaign said in a statement. “Marco is proud of his strong support for and record of standing up for the Second Amendment and no amount of Cruz lies can change that.”
The vote to ban guns took place on March 3, 1999, and essentially created controversial gun free zones in public places such as parks and recreational facilities. Floridian, who are law-abiding and possessed concealed carry permits, were not excepted from the ordinance. In the video below you can see Marco Rubio and three other Miami commissioners unanimously vote in favor of the gun ban.
