Joined by members of the Parkland community, Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson this morning called for swift passage of a bill to address school violence.
"We just want to get it done," Rubio said. "It's not the end of the debate, obviously. You've got to take one step before you take the second."
