Marco Rubio on TerrorismRubio is aggressive in his intentions to pursue terrorism.
MARCO RUBIO: “People ask, what should our strategy be on global jihadists and terrorists? I refer them to the movie 'Taken' – have you seen the movie 'Taken'? Liam Neeson? He has a line, and this is what our strategy should be: 'We will look for you, we will find you, and we will kill you.'

Rubio is skeptical of the federal government's “no-fly” list and other terror watch lists, and voted in the Senate against a gun control bill that would have prevented people on such lists from purchasing firearms or explosives.
MARCO RUBIO: “The majority of the people on the no-fly list are oftentimes people that basically just have the same name as somebody else, who don't belong on the no-fly list. You know, former Senator Kennedy, Ted Kennedy once said he was on a no-fly list. I mean, there are journalists on the no-fly list. There are others involved in the no-fly list that wind up there. These are everyday Americans that have nothing to with terrorism, they wind up on the no-fly list. There's no due process or any way to get your name removed from it in a timely fashion, and now they're having their Second Amendment right being impeded upon.
If these were perfect lists, that would be one thing, but there are over 700,000 Americans on some watch list or another that would all be captured under this amendment the Democrats offered. And that's the problem. The vast – there aren't 700,000 terrorists operating in America openly on watch lists. They include vast numbers on Americans who have names similar to someone we're looking for. Sometimes you're only on that list because the FBI wants to talk to you about someone you know, not because you're a suspect. And, again, now your Second Amendment right is being impeded upon.”
