She may be on the other side of the planet on a tour of Asia with Fifth Harmony, but Lauren Jauregui hasn't forgotten about you, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. The singer -- who has voiced her opinion often about the need for tighter gun laws since the Feb. 14 deadly mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida -- took to Twitter on Sunday (Feb. 25) to lambast the NRA-approved congressman after Rubio posted a series of bible verses.

"How do you sleep at night knowing how much of a hypocrite you are?" Jauregui tweeted at Rubio, who'd earlier posted the quote "and in your descendants all the nations of the earth will find blessing, because you obeyed my command," from Genesis 22:18. 

She continued: "You do know God's 'commands' right? To honor human life is a huge one. To not bare false witness is another. Remember this God you claim is all seeing and all knowing." 

And she wasn't nearly done, adding that "they" have been with Rubio at every "secret engagement and phone calls you've had towards the demise of democracy in MY home state of Florida. You and your arrogant ignorance insult the very God who's name you hollow in vain." The latter, she reminded one-time presidential candidate Rubio, is breaking yet another commandment.

The tweet storm ended with the singer's harshest condemnation of Rubio, who received the third highest total of campaign donations from the NRA PACs in the 2016 election cycle according to the Center for Responsive Politics. After the Sen. refused to say he whether he would reject donations from the gun lobby in the wake of the massacre at Stoneman -- which took the lives of 14 teenage students and three teachers and injured 15 after a 19 year-old gunman opened fire with a semi-automatic military-style AR-15 rifle -- Jauregui said Jesus himself would likely have walked into Rubio's office and told him "how appalling it was to watch you stand idly by while the murder of children and innocent citizens continued so you could be a wealthier pig."

?Jauregui also posted the video of a father who confronted Rubio at last week's CNN town hall event, where he termed the response from the Senator and Pres. Trump in the wake of the 18th school shooting so far this year to be "pathetically weak." 

A host of celebrities have joined Jareugui in speaking out about the importance of having a serious conversation about new gun control measures in the wake of the nation's latest school shooting. Former Pres. Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama have also spoken out in support of the survivors of the massacre, who have become strong, eloquent spokespeople on the issues of gun control and school safety.
