Attention Miami Beach residents: You're invited to Mayor Philip Levine's first ever, Second Amendment Appreciation Day event!
Exactly one week ago I broke the news that a City of Miami Beach employee carried a concealed weapon into a highly sensitive, restricted area of the Miami Beach Police Department.
On the same day I broke the news, I began attempting, through a series of emails and phone calls to the city's spokesperson, to learn why the City Manager and Mayor ignored the fact that an employee was carrying a concealed weapon on city property in direct violation of not only federal and state laws, but also city policy.
A full week later, there's been no response.
As I reported here last month, Miami Beach City Manager Jimmy Morales believes that when it comes to the media and their pesky questions, it's best to say as little as possible.
And while I can't get anyone to go on the record, it appears that Mayor Levine has no problems with city employees carrying firearms on city property.
And that attitude may explain this flyer that Levine has been quietly emailing to City Hall employees and Miami Beach residents.
I don't know about you, but I wouldn't miss this for anything!
