A survivor of the Parkland, FL school shooting got into an intense clash with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during Wednesday nights CNN Town Hall.
Cameron Kasky, a junior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, put the question directly to Rubio.
Senator Rubio, can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA in the future? Kasky said.
Rubio replied, I can tell you that people buy into my agenda. And I do support the second amendment.
I can tell you that people buy into my agenda. And I do support the second amendment.
Rubio also supports amnesty for illegal aliens and arming jihadists.
Why is anyone letting kids go on tour after a shooting, promoting the leftist agenda? This is BS. These kids don’t blame the FBI which admits it was at fault, they don’t want guards in school.
Nothing they want would prevent school shootings, just the opposite.
He should have told her that he will continue to take money from the NRA. The NRA is made up of millions of law abiding Americans. It hasn’t committed any crimes or caused the murder of anyone. Too bad planned parenthood can’t say the same thing.
That. Is what Donald Trump would have said. Liddle Marco is no Donald Trump.
Lil Marco is against arm school teachers.
Does the NRA buy politicians? Not to the extent liberals think.
And there’s no correlation between campaign contributions and a politician’s actual voting record.
About the only thing I would take advice from a teenager on is how to use my steenking smart phone. I’ve been a life member of the NRA for 32 years. I don’t care what an 18 year old thinks about it.
Pretty much what happened was right after that shooting liberals descended on Parkland FL, co-opting these ignorant and naïve kids
Pathetic Astroturf Sheep who regurgitate the same leftist talking points incoherently and are incredibly rude.
“I will gladly accept donations from s fine organization like the National Rifle Association, which protects our inalienable rights on a daily basis,” the senator replied.
Senator Rubio continued, “There are millions of decent Americans who are members of the National Rifle Association. Not one of them had anything to do with this crime. How about locking the doors of your indoctrination center...er, I mean school, and holding the FBI and the local police accountable for not seeing the warning signs from Nicholas Cruz? The punk had more red flags that a May Day parade in the former Soviet Union.”
The senator continued, “If you don’t like American Constitutional rights, you can move to Mexico, a country who doesn’t have a Second Amendment and is rampant with violent crime. The criminals there are heavily armed, but the citizens are not.”
“Furthermore, I won’t be lectured to by a bunch of snot-nosed kids who don’t know their a$$ from a hole in the ground about anything, much less our precious Constitutional rights. Now sit down and shut the hell up.”
At least, that’s what I WISHED Rubio had said.
this same kid wrote on twitter that he was happy when rand Paul got attacked by his neighbor he called it a good news story
Ha..thanks for posting my imagined Rubio response!
Do you have a source for that, I would like to see it.
..... These kids don't understand .... or know it yet ..... But they are about to suffer some major mental events as a repercussion of what they are doing after such an extremely traumatic event.
Absolutely, I would not countenance the question.
“The NRA didn’t do this, and the fact that you want to exploit this tragedy to take away my 2nd Amendment right, is why we need the NRA to protect our rights.
This shooter was a disturbed, violent individual and the authorities were given more than enough warning to act. In the extreme he was begging to be caught, and the FBI, admittedly, ignored these warnings, that in hindsight now resound like meteors hitting the earth! This is a colossal failure of law enforcement, and that idea that this unconscionable failure is not worth any consideration to determine the cause of this tragedy, and that the only intellectual avenue to argue this solution is to attack the Constitution and remove all our rights is perverse. Sorry but I reject these artificial, politically correct ground rules. I am blaming the shooter and law enforcement who failed to stop it, they had ample time to do it. And I’ll tell you this, the FBI is now taking those tips seriously all across the nation. There are a lot of doors being kicked in, as they will not be this derelict in their duty again.
Current gun laws are not being enforced, and one can look at the city of Chicago and see the number of murders being done by illegally possessed weapons. Yet they are not enforcing the laws. Mayor Giuliani can teach them how to save lives, if they care to learn.”
I wonder if this student could even explain what the NRA is and what it does? This question sounds like it is just a rehearsed talking point - the NRA's direct contributions to candidates are quite negligible so the question is meaningless - just an attempt to smear the organization as well as Rubio rather than have a serious discussion.
the NRA is a great organization

RUBIO: “Hey you little racist hack, do you treat all Cubans this way?”
It appears these little puppet chimpanzees have been programmed to go after the NRA. Most of the young skulls full of much probably haven’t got a clue what the NRA is. It’s Americans.
These leftist questions are as nonsensical as asking, “Senator, will you stop accepting donations from Boeing? Their planes killed almost 3,000 people on 9/11/2001”.
