Lanier HS student facing charges after bringing gun to school

Rep. Payne Jr. Issues Statement on Parkland Florida School Shooting

"This needs to be a turning point". Chris Hixon, the husband of one of their teachers, was killed while protecting others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

A weeping 19-year-old Tyra Hemans held posters Thursday of her dead friends, along with one that said "ENOUGH NO GUNS #GunReformNow".

Ryan Deitsch, who was among those hiding in a school toilet during the attack, urged lawmakers to pass more restrictive measures on gun ownership. "They were bolt-action shotguns and single-shot rifles and things really people bought for hunting or sport shooting and weren't the kind of (AR-style rifles) that are used in mass shootings", said Robyn Thomas, executive director of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence. It calls it a precursor for midterm elections in 2018, which it hopes will turn the tide in gun politics.

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.

He did not address the nation in the hours after Wednesday's shooting but did deliver a somber statement the following morning from the White House. And she's made it personal, invoking the president's 11-year-old son, Baron.

Mr Trump is spending the long President's Day weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort, which is not far from Parkland.

"Let's protect Barron, and let's also protect all these other kids here in Parkland, in Florida, and everyone everywhere else", she said.

So far, there's been no indication that the White House is discussing legislation on guns; he said Thursday that he hoped to see Congress "tackle the hard issue of mental health". "We need Action, Action, Action!"

President Trump said that the shooter who slaughtered 17 people at a South Florida school was "mentally deranged".

President Donald Trump said Friday he's traveling to Florida "to meet with some of the bravest people on earth".

He also tweeted Friday that he was "working with Congress on many fronts", though he offered no details.

Cruz had been diagnosed with autism, a neurological disorder that often leads to social awkwardness and isolation, and attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

Meadow Pollack and Alyssa Alhadeff will be buried in the Garden of Aaron at Star of David Memorial Gardens in North Lauderdale after separate funerals on Friday. That might mean starting a drill when students are in hallways or lunchrooms instead of class, or telling a teacher in the midst of a drill to pretend a particular route is blocked, Trump said.

"So I think the NRA actually bonused us in a way", he said.

"Marco said, hey, he wants to go down early". This time we are going to pressure them to take action. Trump later took a meeting on the subject with the NRA. A Pew study from June showed Americans being about equally divided on the influence of the NRA on gun laws, just as they are on gun rights and regulations in general. I understand where they are coming from. Thousands of people attended, according to the Associated Press.

"If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a bad tragedy and. how nothing is going to be done about it, I'm going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association", said Ms Gonzalez. Three religious leaders — one Christian, one Muslim and one Jewish — read aloud the names of those who died as audience members held lit candles.

The troubled teen authorities say killed 17 people at a Florida high school excelled in an air-rifle marksmanship program supported by a grant from the National Rifle Association Foundation, part of a multimillion-dollar effort by the gun group to support youth shooting clubs and other programs.
