TUCSON - Mayor Regina Romero held her first press conference to address gun safety in the City of Tucson on Thursday.
Romero says sensible gun safety has been an issue in the city and she wants her first action as mayor to be something that confronts guns in Tucson.
She has pledged to join the national group "Mayors against Illegal Guns," which was started by Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg in 2013.
He started the group in response to the increase in shootings around the country, including Sandy Hook and the January 8th shooting that occurred in Tucson.
The mayor has also decided to expand the Gun Safety Task Force in the City of Tucson.
She was joined by "Moms Demand Action" and survivors of the January 8th shooting when she signed the pledge on Thursday.
News 4 Tucson has reached out to the local NRA chapter for a statement on Mayor Romero's actions but have yet to hear back.
