Marco Rubio Roughed Up At Contentious Florida Town Hall

(Sunrise, FL) – Republican Senator Marco Rubio is explaining his position in the debate over guns following last week’s deadly high school shooting in Florida. At a contentious town hall meeting televised by CNN, the crowd erupted into cheers when the father of a murdered student told Rubio that his comments reacting to the shooting have been “pathetically weak.”

They booed when Rubio criticized the assault weapons ban. They cheered again when he said if you closed every loophole in the law, you’d have to get rid of every semi-automatic rifle that’s sold in America.

Rubio was jeered as he hemmed and hawed when he was asked if he could refuse any money from the NRA.
