Rubio calls for activists to seek common ground during gun control rallies

Rubio calls for activists to seek common ground during gun control rallies”

Students at the March for Our Lives rallies across the country and world today, March 24, are wearing a "price tag" of $1.05.

One of the students from the Parkland school, Sarah Chadwick, explained that the tag, bearing the price $1.05, was a figure that represents taking the 3,104,167 students enrolled in Florida's schools and dividing it by 3,303,355, representing the amount of just over $3.3 million Rubio has received from the NRA.

March organizers hoped to keep pressure on, making the $1.05 tag available on their website and encouraging all marchers to print it out and tie one on.

Two hours later, Rubio tweeted again, saying that "Today many are peacefully exercising their #1A right to march for gun ban".

"The influence of these groups comes not from money", Rubio said at the time, speaking to students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

David Hogg, a 17-year-old high school senior who survived the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, exaggerated National Rifle Association donations during a speech Saturday in an attempt to slam Sen. "The answer to the question is that people buy into my agenda. And I also support the right of you and everyone here to be able to go to school and be safe". Many pointed out that describing the march as being about a "gun ban" demonstrated that he wasn't actually listening to the arguments being made.

Thousands of protesters descended on Washington DC Saturday in what was supposed to be a march for stricter gun laws. Instead, he highlighted the need to compromise on gun control. The law, which President Donald Trump signed on Saturday as part of the omnibus spending bill, provides funding to train students, teachers, and law enforcement on how to spot and report signs of gun violence. He said that a ban on bump stocks (used to make guns fire more rapidly), improvements to the gun background check system and other efforts were achieved by finding common ground with those who don't want certain gun bans.

But the law doesn't do anything to regulate gun sales or to restrict the sale of assault-style weapons like the AR-15; it's far from what the students listed in their demands on gun control. Rubio and his wife Jeanette Rubio have four children of their own that they love dearly and have never wished harm on anyone else's children.
