Rubio Statement on Senate Gun Legislation

Jun 23, 2022 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement after opposing Senate legislation due to its insufficient constitutional protections for law-abiding citizens. Thanks to Rubio’s efforts, the legislation includes the Luke and Alex School Safety Act, which permanently authorizes the Federal Clearinghouse on School Safety.
“Making the Federal Clearinghouse on School Safety permanent is long overdue,” Rubio said. “I am grateful for Max Schachter, Tom and Gena Hoyer, and so many others for their unwavering dedication to make this happen. It will make a meaningful difference as schools continue to make improvements to protect our children.”
“Unfortunately, after careful review, the constitutional protections in the package are inadequate,” Rubio continued. “In fact, they are significantly weaker than my bipartisan effort with Senators Scott, Reed, and King. I promised the people of Florida I would do everything I could to keep our schools and communities safe while protecting their constitutional rights. This bill fails that test.”
