Rubio: Gun Laws Effective at Keeping Guns from Law-Abiding Citizens
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) responded this afternoon to the left's immediate calls for stricter gun laws following the murder of 14 people in San Bernardino, California.
Rubio said on "Your World" that many places in America - like California and Chicago - struggle with gun violence, despite having very strict laws on the books.
"It's never been shown that these gun laws are effective other than at keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens," said Rubio, calling for lawmakers to focus on the mental illness behind many of these mass shootings.
He said it's time for Americans to ask themselves what has happened to make these violent incidents more common.
"What has happened in this country where something like life and the values that create a strong society have been undermined?" he asked, pointing to a "breakdown in family" and a hostility toward institutions that "reinforce these values."
