Sen. Marco Rubio defended his opposition to an assault weapons ban Wednesday night at a town hall, where he was pushed by the father of a teenage victim of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 people dead. “I want to like you. Here’s the problem. And I’m a brutally honest person so I’m just going to say it up front,” Fred Guttenberg, the father of Jaime Guttenberg said. “Your comments this week and those of our president have been pathetically weak.” The audience at the town hall responded to Guttenberg’s comment with a standing ovation as Guttenberg went on, saying, “Look at me and tell me.
