Guns Makes Cowards of Them
In a glaring example of courage for the wrong reason Sen. Marco Rubio appeared at a town hall meeting to defend his support for allowing everyone to own an assault rifle.
WASHINGTON — Senator Marco Rubio and a spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association were repeatedly heckled at a nationally televised forum on Wednesday night in Florida after they refused to back new gun control measures.
The crowd was hostile, as well it might be after a crazed gunman used an assault rifle to murder kids. And Senator Rubio, the Senator from Florida and the NRA refused to support a ban on the weapons. But at least he had the guts to show up. Not so much the Governor who will run for the Senate and the President who would rather be on the golf course.
President Trump and Gov. Rick Scott of Florida, a Republican, both declined invitations to participate in the town hall-style meeting.
