Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) announced Thursday that he will join efforts to filibuster gun control legislation led by his colleagues Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas). "We should look for ways to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill prone to misusing them, but I oppose legislation that will be used as a vehicle to impose new Second Amendment restrictions on responsible, law-abiding gun owners," Rubio said in a statement.
