Donald Trump visits hospital to meet shooting victims

Kimmel to Trump You've literally done nothing

President Trump urges improvements to addressing mental health and securing schools, but he does not mention gun laws after a massacre at a Florida high school.

"Seventeen innocent people are dead and acknowledging a mistake isn't going to cut it", Scott said.

"Later this month, I will be meeting with the nation's governors and attorney generals, where making our schools and our children safer will be our top priority", Trump said. Of the 17 incidents, one was a suicide, two involved active shooters who killed students, two involved people killed in arguments and three involved people who were shot but survived.

The late-night host - the only one who wasn't pre-empted this week for the Olympics - gave a similar emotional speech in October after the Las Vegas massacre at the Route 91 Harvest festival.

It is a cost that many people are questioning in the United States where there have been nearly 300 school shootings since 2013, which is absolutely staggering.

Trump's visit to Florida was not a last-minute add to his schedule; he'd been planning to spend the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago estate, some 40 miles from Parkland, as well as tout his infrastructure plan at a concrete plant near Orlando. Am also working with Congress on many fronts.

White House sources tell ABC News that it remains unclear what exactly the president wants to ultimately do, but he does want to know what options are available to the administration.

A day earlier, a troubled former student opened fire with a semiautomatic rifle at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, killing 17 people and wounding 14, according to authorities.

The question is often asked, just how many more children have to die in school shootings before the American government takes action on the sale of deadly weapons?

The regulation, finalized in December under Obama's tenure, required the Social Security Administration to disclose information quarterly to the national gun background check system about certain people with mental illness. They say they are exhausted of seeing blood and corpses on classroom floors, and they want their generation to be the catalyst for change.

Sources confirm that, since the shooting, members of the administration have reached out to survivors, relatives of victims and locally elected officials in communities that have previously faced a school shooting.

"How do we allow a gunman to come into our children's school?" I wish I could [have] taken those bullets for you.

For Kurth, words don't cut it anymore: "As educators, we're taught that actions speak louder than words", she said. She invoked the President's 11-year-old son, Barron, as she angrily called for help.

Amid the despair, we can also expect to be uplifted by stories from survivors of heroic acts that helped others live through the gunfire. We need action. Action!
