LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- Florida Senator Marco Rubio is unveiling legislation on gun violence restraining orders as part of his plan to address gun violence.

The senator held a press conference Wednesday afternoon for the unveiling.

Tuesday, Rubio discussed progress on his proposals to reduce gun violence. Earlier this week, Rubio co-introduced the NICS Denial Notification Act and the Students, Teachers, and Officers Preventing (STOP) School Violence Act.

Rubio also urged the Justice and Education Departments to revise guidelines for reporting threats to local law enforcement.
