Since the Parkland shooting, the NRA and politicians have been on the crosshairs of protesters who have been actively arguing for stricter gun control laws to be enacted. In a CNN town hall with some of the survivors, Florida Senator Marco Rubio was grilled, but he was able to maintain composure, and now he’s detailing his thoughts on what led to the Parkland shooting.
During a Congressional roundtable at the White House today, Senator Rubio explained that the shooting was a result of “a multi-systemic failure. The Sheriff’s Office knew this was a problem. The FBI knew this was a problem. The Department of Families knew this was a problem. The Big problem is that they don’t talk to each other. Nobody told the others what they knew.”
The FBI was largely criticized for neglecting reports of those close to Nikolas Cruz who were calling to warn that he may have been planning a school shooting.
Rubio, acknowledging this, stated that a good measure he hopes to see in the Senate is H.R. 4905, also known as the Stop School Violence Act. And, he also voiced his support for the propositions already made by Florida, which include restrictions of purchases by people who have been Baker Acted, a “bump stock” ban and a ban on commercial sales to people that are under the age of 21.
