NRA to Join CNN Town Hall With Fla. School Shooting Survivors

The town hall also will include the victims' classmates, parents, community members, Democratic Florida Rep. Ted Deutch, Sen.

The town hall came a week after 17 people were shot to death at the school in Parkland, Florida, which has prompted calls on lawmakers for gun reform - notably from students around the country.

Loesch said she made a decision to attend because she's "always been about more discussion, not less" and she hopes to be able to "offer some solutions as to what people can actually do to prevent these things from happening in the future".

Rubio's response did not appear to satisfy the audience: "These positions I hold on the Second Amendment, I've held since the day I entered office in the city of West Miami as an elected official", he said, adding, "People buy into my agenda".

Loesch claimed that the NRA supports outlawing "bump stocks", add-on devices that effectively make semi-automatic assault rifles into machine guns.

In the wake of criticism the NRA has received following last week's tragedy, Loesch said prevention should include ensuring that risky individuals are not able to obtain firearms.

Percent of Women in Hollywood Have Experienced Sexual Harassment or Misconduct
Fifty-one percent of women and 17 percent of men reported unwelcome sexual touching. "It says this is ubiquitous in Hollywood. Seventy-seven percent of women and 34 percent of men said they had encountered verbal sexual harassment.

"This individual was nuts, and I - nor the millions of people that I represent as a part of this organization that I'm here speaking for - none of us support people who are insane, who are a danger to themselves, who are a danger to others, getting their hands on a firearm", Loesch said.

"This is the eighth tragedy, the eighth tragedy, where we have seen numerous tips that have been reported and red flags", she said.

Rubio, a strong NRA supporter, has accepted contributions from the organization, as have many other Republican lawmakers.

The crowd continued to loudly jeer as Loesch tried to explain her position on the age requirement, arguing that if one is old enough to drive a auto or serve in the military they should also be able to buy a weapon.

"An 18-year-old kid should not have a rifle.They're in high school".
