New Ad Highlights How Senator Rubio's Threat To Filibuster Background Checks Makes Florida Less Safe

91 Percent of Floridians Support Checks for All Gun Sales; www.DemandAction.org

NEW YORK, April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Mayors Against Illegal Guns today released a new television ad in Florida that highlights how Senator Marco Rubio's threats to filibuster a vote on commonsense reforms like comprehensive background checks would make Floridians less safe.  Looking past Florida and toward a likely run for the presidency, Rubio's threat to filibuster is a play for NRA support and defies the 91 percent of Floridians who want background checks for all gun sales.

The ad will air in the Orlando and Tampa markets and can be seen here: http://www.demandaction.org/rubio

Below is the script of the ad.

Marco Rubio – a new senator, but already looking past Florida, thinking of running for President. 

And that has Rubio running to the right – opposing a bill on comprehensive background checks. 

Rubio would let criminals and the dangerously mentally ill get guns without a background check.   

Even worse, Rubio has said he would filibuster the vote in Washington – so the Senate won't even be able to vote on background checks. 

Ninety-one percent of Floridians support background checks. But, Rubio's Presidential ambitions make Florida less safe. ( Quinnipiac University Poll, March 13-18, 2013 http://www.quinnipiac.edu/institutes-centers/polling-institute/florida/release-detail?ReleaseID=1870)

About Mayors Against Illegal GunsSince its creation in April 2006, Mayors Against Illegal Guns has grown from 15 members to more than 900 mayors from across the country. We have more than 1.5 million grassroots supporters, making us the largest gun violence prevention advocacy organization in the country.  The bipartisan coalition, co-chaired by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, has united the nation's mayors around these common goals: protecting communities by holding gun offenders accountable; demanding access to crime gun trace data that is critical to law enforcement efforts to combat gun trafficking; and working with legislators to fix weaknesses and loopholes in the law that make it far too easy for criminals and other dangerous people to get guns.  Learn more at www.mayorsagainstillegalguns.org
