They also questioned National Rifle Association Spokeswoman Dana Loesch about the organization's stance on the current system for purchasing firearms.

Some of the student participants came straight from the state Capitol in Tallahassee after lobbying state lawmakers for tougher restrictions on weapons like the one used to kill their friends and teachers. "If they want to talk about checkpoint systems, if they want to talk about reinforcing doors, the NRA, our resources are at their disposal", she said.

"I think that all life should be protected, that's why next week there's going to be good guys with guns that are going to be in schools protecting lives, just as there's armed security here", she said.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel shared the stage with Loesch, in the second half of the event after Florida lawmakers took questions earlier. "You're not standing up for them until you say, 'I want less weapons'".

"Now seven years later, I am in a closet with 19 other kids waiting, fearing for my own life", he said.

Loesch said the founders intended the militia at the time to be an American man or woman who "could operate and service their firearm". Directing his comments at Loesch, he said the NRA can't say it stands for people until it says it wants less weapons.

"I don't believe this insane monster should have ever been able to obtain a firearm", Loesch said Wednesday night, calling the suspect "nuts".

Loesch said it was not a matter of prioritizing one right over another. "He should have been barred from getting a firearm", she said.

He said he has proposed a concept called a gun violence restraining order that would allow people to go to authorities with concerns about someone who should not have a gun.

Ashley Kurth, a culinary instructor at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who sheltered almost 70 students during the shooting, questioned whether she will be expected to receive firearm training and keep a bullet-proof vest in the classroom.

With the sound of gunshots still fresh in their minds, survivors of a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, are raising their voices, hoping to prevent another massacre.

"I don't believe teachers should be armed".

The NRA has given significant donations to various political candidates, including Rubio, who received two donations of $4,950 during the 2016 election from the NRA's political arm, The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund.

Rubio also said he does not support arming teachers, but does support background check regulation reform, a point that both Nelson and Deutch agreed on as well. "I think that definitely helped a lot".

Rubio's response did not appear to satisfy the audience: "These positions I hold on the Second Amendment, I've held since the day I entered office in the city of West Miami as an elected official", he said, adding, "People buy into my agenda".

The town hall on Wednesday night followed days of sit-ins, walkouts and demonstrations in solidarity with survivors of the massacre.

"These are the young people that are going to change the world for the better".

"Can you tell me that you won't accept a single donation from the NRA?" "They have been preparing for this moment", he said.
