On Friday, Sarah Chadwick suggested that Rubio’ s symbiotic relationship with all the National Rifle Association deserved some sort of tribute.
In a twitter update referencing the AR-15 rifle, that the shooter allegedly used to kill seventeen people at her school a week ago, Chadwick proposed nicknaming the tool after the senator “ because they’ re very easy to buy . ”
For the report, Rubio has accepted $3. several million from the gun rights business so far in his political career.
Rubio didn’ t assist his cause throughout a CNN town hall meeting Wed night during an exchange with Cameron Kasky, a high school jr who also survived the massacre.
When Kasky asked Rubio, “ Can you tell me right now you will not accept a single donation through the NRA? ” the senator mentioned he’ d continue to take the money because “ individuals buy into my agenda ― and am do support the Second Amendment. ”
Kasky replied, “ Therefore , right now, in the name of 17 people, you are unable to ask the NRA to keep their particular money out of your campaign? ”
The senator’ s respond showed how committed he is towards the organization’ s lucre.
“ There is money on both edges of every issue in America, ” Rubio replied, “ and where that will leaves us in policymaking would be to look at the issues and make a decision depending on what we think is right. ”
HuffPost reached out to Rubio for the comment on the proposed nickname, yet his office did not immediately react.
