Rubio said he believes "the problems we face here today can not be solved by gun laws alone", but listed some measures he would back: banning bump stocks, adding more information to the background check system, and keeping 18-year-olds from buying rifles (he didn't explain whether he meant assault rifles or all rifles). The network said 7,000 people were at the BB&T Center for the event. "If I believed that the passing of that law would prevent this, I would support it, but it does not", he said, earning more boos.

Guttenberg responded by explaining that his daughter was "shot in the back with an assault weapon" while running down the hall at Stoneman Douglas.

The sheriff of the Florida county where a rifle-toting teen gunman killed 17 people told a crowd of young people Wednesday that "America is watching you" and that students should continue to push hard for gun control reform. Bill Nelson and Rep. Ted Deutch.

"What you've lived through, and what you live through, is not supposed to be a part of your high school experience", said Rubio, who was joined at the town hall by fellow Florida lawmakers, Sen. Many lasted 17 minutes in honor of the 17 people killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.

Rubio said the country has not been able to make progress on the issue of gun control "but you do have a chance to change it".

The passion and forcefulness of parents and students, and their repeated demands for limits on assault weapons made so much of an impression on Rubio that he publicly announced he is rethinking his past opposition to putting limits on the size of ammunition magazines.

Deitsch asked Rubio why do students have to be the ones demanding action on gun control laws. Another student referred to NRA contributions to Rubio as "blood money".

The seniors talked about their mission, which Tarr said is not to take away the civil liberties of law-abiding gun owners.

President Donald Trump, Gov. Rick Scott, Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Florida Senate President Joe Negron declined invitations to the CNN town hall. Three states have similar measures, Rubio said.

"This is a first step if people let their leaders know what they want them to do", Brighton said.

"My friends and I are afraid that we're going to be murdered in our classrooms".

As for arming teachers as the President indicated support for earlier Wednesday, Rubio said he did not favor that, both as a father and as a matter of practicality. "However, even in my position, I can see that there is desperate need for change - change that starts by folks showing up to the polls and voting all those individuals who are in the back pockets of gun lobbyists out of office". "So I call BS", he wrote.

The setting was the arena that's normally used for hockey games, concerts - and occasional mass political rallies. He took almost $10K during the 2016 election cycle.
