RUBIO: "That's an excellent question, Gabriel, and I want to answer that one even though it's not a debate. It's an excellent point, it's an issue I want people to understand what it's all about. I appreciate your words. Being here tonight is not courage. Courage is what you did and what you guys are doing and those teachers and administrators. That's courage. Fred, you talked to your story a moment ago. You know, I would tell you that what you've done in this effort, irrespective of we may have a different view of something, that's courage. That's real courage. Now, on the issue you've raised about your background checks, related directly to what you said about the assault weapons ban, it's not the loopholes. It's the problem that once you start looking at how easy it is to get around it, you would literally have to ban every semi-automatic rifle that's sold in America."
