'Never Again' Is The Message At Florida Capitol Rally

On Feb. 14, Nikolas Cruz allegedly shot and killed 17 students and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.

Mr Trump has spent the past two days listening to ideas about how to stem gun violence at schools after last week's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which sparked a wave of protests.

The attack has reignited the national debate over gun control as survivors of the shooting have called on lawmakers to enact stricter gun control measures.

"The politicians sit on their hands as our children and their teachers are murdered in their schools", Diane Ravitch, the group's president, and Carol Burris, its executive director, said in a post online. We just need elected officials to propose and vote on common-sense gun reform.

"Guns are not a school supply", said another student.

The day after the shooting, Loch Raven High School students found themselves on lockdown after a student brought to school what was later found to be a realistic-looking replica gun. We lost coaches. I've been to the funerals, I've been to the homes.

Peterson was placed on restricted administrative assignment and surrendered his identification card and weapons on February 22. About 100 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students arrived at a Tallahassee high school to extended applause late Tuesday after a almost eight-hour trip. The sheriff said he was "devastated" over the deputy's lack of response.

For now they're taking it day by day.

The high school had one armed resource officer inside at the time of the shooting but the officer never faced the shooter.

A week after the massacre at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead, the sheriff in charge of investigating the shooting has ordered deputies to carry rifles on school grounds "from this point forward".

But McKeone, one of the responding officers, said the delay did not hinder access to the victims.

"The president was very accommodating and he understood the severity of what happened", Pollack said.

USA president Donald Trump has defied many of his supporters in gun lobbying group the National Rifle Association (NRA) by saying assault rifles should be kept out of the hands of anyone under 21. The Broward County Sheriff's Office, which is leading the shooting investigation, also has not explained why the video was on tape delay.
