Sen. Marco Rubio: Now Is Not The Time To Talk About Gun Control. (Or The 3.3 Million Dollars In Blood Money I Took From The NRA.)

"Republicans prefers dead kids over gun regulations." Tell all your friends.

Mediaite reports:

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Florida Senator Marco Rubio thinks gun control isn’t necessarily the answer to stopping the school shooting that killed at least 17 people in Parkland, Florida. Fox News’ Pete Doocy asked Rubio if he thought it was appropriate to be discussing gun control after the events.

“It’s not, only because people don’t know how this happened,” Rubio said. “[We don’t know] who this person is, what motivated them, how did they get a hold of the weapon that they used for this attack.” (We do now know who the shooter is, and police will begin to dissect his motivations and identify the murder weapon.)

Marco Rubio has taken over $3.3 million in blood money from the NRA as of this past October.

  1. I hate to agree with Senator Rubio. I think it is time we enforce the regulations we have already. Most of the gun legislation we have now is in reaction to events and emotionally charged. It is not thought out. I think we increase funding to the national database for back round checks.We need to look at gun show transactions.We have tried mandatory sentencing as a deterrent and it has had the opposite effect. It has only fueled a level of heightened violence and desperate acts.
    This is the time to look at the roots of gun violence. Why are these crimes happening?Why is gun homicide the leading cause of death in Urban minority men under 25.? There are a lot of questions that new gun legislation will not solve. It will just add bureaucracy to an overburdened system.
