Rubio Reconsiders His Position On Guns

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) spoke at a town hall and stated he is “reconsidering” his stance on magazine size restrictions. He also pointed out restrictions “may save lives in an attack.”


Rubio said, “I traditionally have not supported looking at magazine clip size, and after this, and some of the details I’ve learned about it, I’m reconsidering that position.”

“it may save lives in an attack. And I’ll let it — I’ll let the authorities discuss, at the appropriate time, why I say that. But suffice it to say that I believe that there will be evidence that, at a key moment in this incident, three or four people might be alive today because of something that this deranged killer did, had to do. And obviously, it’s not for me to make law enforcement announcements. I don’t know what the right number is. I don’t know what — I know that there are, for example, handguns that have 17. And so, we’ll have to get into that debate, but that is something that I believe that we can reach a compromise [on] in this country, and that I’m willing to reconsider. Because I do believe that in this instance, it didn’t — it wouldn’t have prevented the attack, but it made it less lethal.”
