Today on The Laura Ingraham Show, Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) blasted President Obama and the mass media for their calculating and deceptive push for gun control.
Rubio claimed there was a great deal of media “misinformation” about guns, and chalked it up to a liberal bias. “[T]he mass media in this country, both entertainment and news media, leans lefts and would prefer that there not be Second Amendment.”
Rubio also slammed President Obama for planning to announce his new gun control measures surrounded by children. “[I]t implies that somehow those of us who do not agree with his public policy prescriptions don’t equally care about children. I have four children of my own… I was shocked and outraged and disgusted by what happened in Connecticut.”
Rubio continued: “There’s a long history in this administration of demonizing their political opponents… [I]t’s an effort to convince people that the other side are just not good people.”
He told Ingraham that the proposals Obama was considering “would not have prevented what happened in Connecticut, and it would not prevent it from happening in the future”
“Criminals don’t follow the law.” Rubio said definitively, “That’s what makes them criminals.”
