Rubio on guns: a new low … Vote for Chris Murphy!

Marco Rubio:

Introduced sham legislation on gun violence prevention. The bill would achieve almost nothing — it’s just an attempt to disguise his record of consistently voting with the NRA. Sign here to call on Marco Rubio to represent Floridians and take real action against gun violence >>

Rubio must be hoping we’ve forgotten the facts:

  1. Marco Rubio is endorsed by, funded by, and rated “A+” by the NRA.
  2. He used the the deaths of 49 innocent Floridians at Pulse as a reason to run for re-election.
  3. After Orlando, he said he doesn’t “believe that guns are the cause of violence.”
  4. Since then, he’s voted against every bill that would would help prevent mass shootings and keep our families safe.
  5. He even voted against a bipartisan measure to prevent people on the No Fly List from purchasing guns.

Marco Rubio continues to stand with the gun lobby instead of keeping Floridians safe. Floridians deserve better. Sign here if you agree >>

Thanks for standing with us,
Team Murphy

PS: Even Sen. Chris Murphy, who bravely filibustered for gun violence prevention earlier this year, called out Marco Rubio’s political opportunism:
