Rubio defends NRA donations: 'People buy into my agenda'

Rubio defends NRA donations: 'People buy into my agenda' Rubio defends NRA donations: 'People buy into my agenda'

During CNN's "Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action", Sen. Marco Rubio will also participate in the CNN town hall. "The influence comes from the millions of people that agree with the agenda". Marco Rubio, a Republican, told the crowd.

The students who swarmed Florida's state capitol in the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High massacre want the Legislature to enact stricter limits on guns.

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter, Jaime, was killed last week, had harsh words for Rubio, a Republican from Florida.

Israel also addressed Loesch at one point: "I understand you're standing up for the NRA, and I understand that's what you're supposed to do. Here's the problem. Your comments this week and those of our President have been pathetically weak", he said to lasting applause and cheers.

"Can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the [National Rifle Association] in the future", Cameron Kasky, a student of the high school where 17 people were gunned down on February 14, asked Rubio during a CNN town-hall event.

Guttenberg pressed, asking, "Were guns the factor in the hunting of our kids?"

Loesch said that she spoke for herself and the millions of members of the NRA in saying that "none of us support people who are insane, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others getting their hands on a firearm".

Student to Rubio: Will you turn down NRA money?

Rubio, who has an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association, said he does not support arming teachers, but does support background check regulation reform. Rubio responded that he would support laws barring those 18 and under from buying such weapons, support changing the background checks system and getting rid of bump stocks. He wouldn't say he would turn down an NRA contribution. "The influence of these groups comes not from money", Rubio said.

He also challenged the NRA's Dana Loesch, telling her she was not standing up for the victims as she claimed unless she advocated for fewer firearms.

"I'm not just fighting for my kids".

"You and I are now eye-to-eye because I want to like you", Guttenberg said. All three politicians said they did not support arming teachers, including Rubio. "If they want to talk about checkpoint systems, if they want to talk about reinforcing doors, the NRA, our resources are at their disposal", she said.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said at a news conference Wednesday that the rifles will be locked in a patrol auto when not in use until the agency secures gun locks and lockers. "What assurances can you give me and what specifically are you going to do to make sure that we won't have this fear?" "It is too easy to get". Trump held a listening session at the White House on Wednesday with high school students and teachers who have been affected by school shootings.

Yet even among those who vehemently disagreed with him, Rubio did get credit for showing and testing his arguments against an outraged crowd and for displaying a glimpse of political flexibility under political fire. "You will get it done".

"These are the young people that are going to change the world for the better". "Not this gun, any gun, but I want to explain to you for a moment the problem with the law that they call the assault weapons ban".

Some of the student participants came straight from the state Capitol in Tallahassee after lobbying state lawmakers for tougher restrictions on weapons like the one used to kill their friends and teachers.

Israel told the crowd of about 7,000 people that he walked through the crime scene of a "horrific killer" 30 minutes after last Wednesday's attack on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. "We don't want others to go through the kind of pain you have gone through".

Loesch said it was not a matter of prioritizing one right over another.

A student who survived the deadly Parkland school shooting in Florida asked Republican Sen.

"We have to start. following up on red flags", she later added.

CNN's Emanuella Grinberg wrote from Sunrise and Steve Almasy wrote from Atlanta.
