Short transcript:

Sen. Marco Rubio: We need to prevent people on the no-fly list from buying these weapons, even though there are people that work for DHS (Department of Homeland Security) that are on the no-fly list.

By the way, these individuals that conducted this attack would not have been prevented from accessing their weapons.

And then the cynicism, the cynicism tonight to spend a significant amount of time talking about discrimination against Muslims.

Where is there widespread evidence that we have a problem in America with discrimination against Muslims? And the refusal to call this what it is, a war on radical Islam.

Very disappointing tonight. I think not only did the president not make things better tonight, I fear he may have made things worse in the minds of many Americans.
