Marco Rubio Speaks on Pulse Nightclub Attack Anniversary: ‘We Must Remain Vigilant’ Against Terrorism
Rubio spoke on the Senate floor to recognize the five-year anniversary and honor the victims of the tragic terrorist attack at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub.
On June 12, 2016, a terrorist killed 49 people and wounded 68 people at the Pulse nightclub which was popular with the LGBT community in Central Florida. Barbara Poma, the owner of Pulse, has launched the onePULSE Foundation “to memorialize the tragedy and ensure that Pulse’s legacy of love, acceptance and hope will never be lost” including building a museum slated to open in 2022.
Florida Republican U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott teamed up on the resolution which passed the U.S. Senate without opposition.
“After the terrorist attack at Pulse nightclub, my office was able to assist one young man who suffered injuries that may have prevented him from pursuing his career, ultimately making it difficult for him to repay his student loans on time,” Rubio said.
On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., introduced a resolution, which was passed by unanimous consent, honoring the 49 lives lost in the terror attack on Pulse Nightclub in Orlando three years ago.
Rubio reintroduced the “Terror Intelligence Improvement Act” which, his office insisted, will “make it harder for suspected terrorists to purchase firearms” and “provide more authority for law enforcement agencies to go after suspected terrorists, while safeguarding law-abiding citizens’ Second Amendment and due process rights.”
Scott wrote FBI Director Christopher Wray requesting updates on steps the agency has taken to address critical deficiencies in its handling of actionable intelligence on the perpetrators of acts of mass violence in Florida, including the tragic shootings at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and Pulse Nightclub.
In order to push their gun control agenda, contenders for the Florida Democratic gubernatorial nomination are using the anniversary on the campaign trail.
