A likely Republican presidential candidate has introduced a bill that would ban local elected officials in the nation’s capital from enacting gun-control laws.

The bill introduced Thursday by Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida would essentially leave the District of Columbia governed only by federal gun laws.

Rubio says in a statement that District leaders have infringed on residents’ second-amendment rights and left them “vulnerable to criminals.” The city requires that handguns be registered, and residents must show a reason for obtaining a concealed-carry permit.
