Three billboards in Florida target Rubio on guns Favorite 



Feb 18 2018



An online activist group is mimicking the critically acclaimed film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri to troll Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., with three rolling billboards in Florida calling for gun control.

The group Avaaz created the campaign, which features three trucks with billboard-like images splashed across the side. They read, "Slaughtered in school," then "And still no gun control?" followed by, "How come, Marco Rubio?"

In the film, a mother personally challenges local authorities to solve her daughter's murder. Emma Ruby-Sachs, Avaaz deputy director, said her group is challenging Rubio to support gun control after Wednesday's carnage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 people dead.

Rubio drew criticism for claiming gun restrictions could not have prevented the shooting. Rubio defended his position on Twitter, claiming the media "downplay" that he also said that Congress should not "therefore raise our hands & say there's nothing we can do."
