If the Shoe Fits Wear It! Senator Marco Rubio Dubbed “Pathetically Weak”

Florida Senator Marco Rubio Weak

Florida Senator Marco Rubio was slammed as ‘pathetically weak’ Wednesday night as parents and victims of the massacre in Parkland, Florida, took the stage to confront him in a Town Hall meeting.

Rubio was the only Republican lawmaker who attended the town hall, which included Democrats Sen. Bill Nelson and Rep. Ted Deutch.

Rubio received a chorus of boos when he said that a ban on assault weapons would not have by the father of one of the Parkland, Florida school shooting victims.

The Town Hall meeting was hosted by CNN’s Jake Tapper, who noted at the beginning that President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Rick Scott both denied request to attend.

“If you are 18 years of age, you should not be able to buy a rifle. I will support a law that takes that right away,” Rubio said during the CNN town hall to Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jamie, was killed just a week ago.

Rubio said he would agree to raising the age to 21 to purchase the rifle.

Rubio also bucked an idea floated by President Donald Trump earlier Wednesday, saying he does not support arming teachers. Trump offered his suggestion at listening session with students, parents and gun control advocates at the White House.

“I don’t support that,” he said “The notion that my kids are going to school with teachers that are armed with a weapon is not something that, quite frankly, I’m comfortable with.”

Marco Rubio Issues Statement

“It is inexcusable that the FBI failed to follow protocols and inform the Miami Field Office that people close to the Parkland, FL shooter warned the Bureau over a month ago of his desire to kill, his mental state, and erratic behavior. The fact that the FBI is investigating this failure is not enough. Both the House and Senate need to immediately initiate their own investigations into the FBI’s protocols for ensuring tips from the public about potential killers are followed through. Lawmakers and law enforcement personnel constantly remind the public that ‘if you see something, say something.’ In this tragic case, people close to the shooter said something, and our system utterly failed the families of seventeen innocent souls.”
