Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) along with support from Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI), and Sen. Angus King (I-ME) plans to reintroduce a bill that would encourage more states to enact red flag laws.
“This idea has already proven successful in states like Florida, and it is my hope that this bill will get all the other states in the country to do the same thing,” Rubio said in a prepared statement.
It appears that part of my prediction is coming true. I stated that Marco Rubio has a history of backing gun control and that he would be a threat to our Second Amendment rights.
How do I know? He openly supported magazine capacity limits and backed Florida Democrats’ attempts at passing stiffer gun control after Parkland.
When he was a member of the Florida state legislature he supported gun control then, too. So of course Sen. Rubio told WPLG Miami that gun control is all about the children. To keep them safe.
That’s sure to do the trick. Just like when the Broward County Sheriff’s Office failed to take action or the laws that were already in place didn’t stop Nikolas Cruz. There’s good reason to believe that President Trump will also back such a bill and possibly the NRA too.
Happy new year.
UPDATE: The bill is now on Library of Congress’ website and is listed as S.7 – A bill to provide family members of an individual who they fear is a danger to himself, herself, or others, or law enforcement, with new tools to prevent gun violence.
