Sen. Marco Rubio said that passing gun-control legislation will not solve America’s rising violent crime problem because the only people that will abide by them are “law abiding people.”

RUBIO: There’s a broader issue here as well. First of all, the only people that follow the law are law abiding people. Criminals, by definition, ignore the law. You can pass all the gun laws in the world — like the left wants — criminals are going to ignore it because they are criminals. Here’s the real issue. The real issue is not what people are using to create violence, but why are they committing the violence.
