Sunrise town hall attendees express hope for law changes

In perhaps the most viral moment of the night, Senator Rubio struggles to give a straight answer when pressed by a Parkland teen over whether he'll continue to accept money from the NRA.

These high school students may be teenagers, but they know the deal. They are professional politicians; it is what they've trained to do.

"We pray that there's never another one". On Feb. 14, a former student walked into the high school and killed 17 students and teachers with an AR-15.

Marco Rubio, are you listening? "Get back to the basics and make us all proud!"

Finally, we have a honest president who cares about the American people and the human race.

One student, Cameron Kasky, said onstage while questioning Sen.

Ms. Loesch also said the NRA had asked the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to look into a ban on bump stocks - the mechanism that turns a semi-automatic rifle into an automatic weapon - prior to the shooting in Las Vegas previous year.

The response from the audience was awe-inspiring.

Loesch said that the NRA does not support people "who are insane, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others, getting their hands on a firearm".

Loesch made the NRA's stance very clear. "We said, 'Now might not be the time to talk about gun control".

"And I do support any law that would keep guns out of the hands of a deranged killer".

Mr Rubio said he would explain what he said during the week, and repeat it. On Twitter, the president tweeted that he would be "strongly pushing" more stringent background checks, and raising the age to 21 and ending the sale of bump stocks.

Sheriff Scott Israel of Broward County declared the USA has had enough of deadly shootings and that he was personally saddened to have through the crime scene of a "horrific killer" 30 minutes after the attack last week.

The Stoneman Douglas students and parents also confronted NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, who said the organization feels the system for buying firearms is flawed and too many people who shouldn't be able to buy guns are getting them through the cracks in the system.

Dana Loesch made the comments at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), an annual gathering of politicians and activists from the U.S. right-wing.

That comment apparently did not sit well with some of the attendees, including Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, who challenged Loesch on the assertion: "You're not standing up for them until you say, 'I want less weapons, '" Israel said, amid raucous cheering and applause.

And again, the hall exploded in cheers. That's why we have seen vile people on the right attack these teenagers as "actors" and George Soros pawns. But if you don't like that analogy because recruits get training in proper handling of weapons while the average 18-year-old gun owner might not, what about young adults who really do need them for self-defense?
