Stoneman Douglas High School student Cameron Kasky just got everyone out of their seats when he asked Senator Marco Rubio a yes or no question: Can you tell me right now you will not accept a single donation from the NRA?
Senator Rubio tried to deflect, though. He couldn’t answer the question.
Long story made short, he basically said that he would continue to accept their donations because they don’t influence him, they merely support his ideas.

Senator Rubio was also asked another question earlier by a grieving father, whose 14-year-old daughter was murdered that fateful day.
“Senator Rubio, I want to like you, but your comments this week and those from the president have been pathetically weak!”
That was only the start, though. The crowd just couldn’t get enough of this man tearing into Rubio.
“Look at me and tell me guns were the factor in the hunting of our kids in school this week, and look me in the eye and tell me you will do something about guns!”
