President Donald Trump, Gov. Rick Scott, Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Florida Senate President Joe Negron declined invitations to the CNN town hall.

Rubio did express his support for a range of gun control measures.

A student who survived the deadly Parkland school shooting in Florida posed a pointed question to Republican Sen.

During CNN's Wednesday night town hall with Florida lawmakers, survivors of last week's high school shooting and members of the NRA, Sen.

"I just listened to your opening, and thank you".

"I didn't let go of that kid for an hour and a half", Kasky later told the Sun-Sentinel. "Your comments this week and those of our president have been pathetically weak".

"You and I are now eye to eye. Cause I want to like you", Guttenberg continued.

"I'm saying that the problems we face here today can not be solved by gun laws alone", Rubio said, but he was interrupted by Guttenberg, who asked again, "Were guns the factor in the hunting of our kids?"

The crowd booed Rubio as he began to reply, "The problems that we're facing here today can not be solved by gun laws alone".

"The problems that we are facing here today can not be solved by gun laws alone", Rubio said.

The NRA gave Rubio more than $3 million in campaign spending over the course of his legislative career.

Rubio began to bob and weave, saying the influence of "these groups comes not from money; it comes from millions of people who support the agenda" insisting that he takes money from those who "buy into my agenda". "I'm trying to be clear and honest here: someone who has chose to commit this crime, they will find a way to get the gun to do it", he said.

Sen. Bill Nelson and Congressman Ted Deutch, both Democrats from Florida, also were present on a dais.

Marco Rubio attempted to explain why a ban on assault rifles wouldn't have prevented the tragedy, and the audience's reaction was not quite what he was hoping for. "I still hunt with my son, but an AK-47 and an AR-15 is not for hunting, it's for killing", said Nelson.

"Okay, so I knew that was gonna happen", Kasky said.

"My daughter, who was running down the halls when she was shot, was killed by these guns". "The weapon of choice. OK?"

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter Jaime, 14, was among the 17 people killed at Stoneman Douglas on Feb 14, make his position clear from the moment he got the microphone. "It is a weapon of war", the father emotionally said. The fact that you can't stand with everybody in this building and say that?

The town hall followed a day of school walk outs around the country to demand a ban on assault-style rifles like the one Cruz was able to buy when he was 18 years old.

"My belief remains that rather than continue to try to chase every loophole that's created - that's why it failed in '94, that's why they're getting around it in California, it's how they get around it in NY - is we should make sure that unsafe criminals, people who are deranged can not buy any gun of any kind", Rubio said. "We just want to advocate for the safety of students in Broward County", said Audrey Ramos, a junior at Coral Glades High School in Coral Springs.
