Marco Rubio offered his opinion on the recent mass shooting in Oregon. The Republican presidential candidate suggested on an episode of NBC’s Today show that gun control laws wouldn’t have stopped the shooting.
“Unfortunately, in cases of mental illness or in the cases of someone who just wants a gun to carry out a crime, they’re not going to follow the law,” the Florida senator added.
“Guns are what they’re using to commit the violence,” Rubio. “In many of these cases, the laws that are actually being proposed would not have prevented them. For example, these were not assault rifles. These were handguns that he had purchased.
“The laws that many are proposing would have done nothing to prevent these attacks,” Rubio added.
