Sen. Marco Rubio Booed At School Shooting Town Hall As He Refuses To Reject NRA Funds

High school junior Cameron Kasky, who survived the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High last week in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 people died, asked Rubio, “Can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA?”
Rubio replied that he would continue to take the NRA’s money because “people buy into my agenda ― and I do support the Second Amendment.”
The simple questions were the most devastating during the sometimes heated town hall, called “Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action” “Why do we have to march on Washington just to save innocent lives?” student Ryan Deitsch asked Rubio.
Rubio replied that there would be changes as a result of Deitsch and his classmates’ advocacy.
Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter was killed in last week’s shooting, also confronted Rubio. “Look at me and tell me: Guns were the factor in the hunting of our kids in this school this week. And look at me and tell me you accept it and you will work with us to do something about guns,” he said.
Dissatisfied with Rubio’s response, Guttenberg then called the senator and President Donald Trump “pathetically weak.”
