To absolutely no one’s surprise, Florida Senator Marco Rubio thinks gun control isn’t necessarily the answer to stopping the school shooting that killed at least 17 people in Parkland, Florida. Fox News’ Pete Doocy asked Rubio if he thought it was appropriate to be discussing gun control after the events.
“It’s not, only because people don’t know how this happened,” Rubio said. “[We don’t know] who this person is, what motivated them, how did they get a hold of the weapon that they used for this attack.” (We do now know who the shooter is, and police will begin to dissect his motivations and identify the murder weapon.)

Here’s a screenshot showing @marcorubio voting “nay” on a bill to ban assault weapons like the one used in today’s school shooting in Florida.
In other words: Rubio and every other senator who voted NO on this have blood on their hands. pic.twitter.com/x8uDwLAtxw
