NRA spokesperson says media loves 'mass shootings' night after CNN town hall

NRA spokesperson says media loves 'mass shootings' night after CNN town hall

Millions of children have grown up in the shadow of terror and violence, watching one school massacre after another - and the Parkland students, like many others now, are saying no more.

Rubio didn't answer yes or no, other than to say that "people buy into my agenda". The ex-CNN host, who famously sparred with conservative author Ben Shapiro over gun control in 2013, echoed previous commentary by calling Mrs. Loesch "sickening". "They have been preparing for this moment", he said. You heard that town hall last night.

"Many in legacy media love mass shootings".

Nelson, a Democrat said, "I think it is a awful idea". "Now I'm not saying that you love the tragedy, but I am saying that you love the ratings".

Rubio responded that yes, "of course" guns were a factor.

"I wanna make the super-obvious point: The government has proven they can not keep you safe, and yet some people want all of us to disarm", she said.

"We have to maybe take the bullets out of the gun as well as putting on the vest and we have to make it harder for the shooter to get the guns, from the liberal perspective, as well as potentially putting in metal detectors in the schools so we can honor the conservative perspective". Marco Rubio anxious aloud that the national debate about gun control might trail off into yet another deadlock. David Hogg, another student who has been among the most visible in criticizing D.C.'s inaction, tweeted, "Thank you [Marco Rubio] for actually coming out it means a lot".

"Senator Rubio, My daughter running down the hallway at Marjory Stone and Douglas was shot in the back with an assault weapon, the weapon of choice".

Loopholes are exceptions in laws that allow behavior the law seems to attempt to prevent to continue.

"Yes, gun legislation under those circumstances should have been considered", Nelson said.

The CNN town hall was only one of dozens of rallies, protests, walkouts, interviews, listening sessions, and town halls around Florida and at the White House yesterday. One of the ideas that Trump floated was to arm teachers.

Avery Anger, 14, who hid in a closet during the shooting, said she didn't know what to think after the town hall. "I think that [Jake Tapper] lost control".

Ms Loesch was hired as NRA spokeswoman a year ago, and made a splash in a series of adverts in which she claimed U.S. schools taught kids that President Donald Trump "is another Hitler" and called on gun owners to "fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth".

Loesch turned to keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally unstable via background checks.

Loesch asked. She did not, however, support raising the age requirement for certain types of weapons.

"Dana Loesch perfectly exemplifying the cold, calculating, ruthless & sickening mindset of the NRA - whose sole objective is to sell more guns & milk every mass shooting to that end", he tweeted.

But the media cheered when Loesch brought up problems with background checks that had allowed risky people to obtain weapons, and Scott Israel, the sheriff of Broward County and an enthusiastic Hillary Clinton supporter in 2016, attempted to smear her. "Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back [of the room]".
