No progress on gun control — Florida shooting

"Action!" Alhadeff urged in an interview with CNN, addressing Trump as the father of an 11-year-old son of his own.

Authorities say that Nikolas Cruz, 19, gunned down students and staff with a rifle on Wednesday at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, killing 17 people. All of the victims have been identified, but names are slowly being released to the public as the victims' families are notified.

"No student, no teacher should be in danger in an American school", Trump said during a national address from the White House. But on Planet Trump, chances are bleaker still. The President on Thursday offered no indication he is willing to revisit the nation's gun laws, instead emphasizing the mental health aspect of mass shootings.

The church-gun legislation is inspired by last fall's shooting at a rural Texas church that killed 26 people and was the largest mass shooting in that state's history.

Tennessee lawmakers are at odds about the right time to talk about it as several gun-related bills are coming up for debate in the next two weeks.

"My message to lawmakers in Congress is please take action".

When you are in our schools or at school events, be alert for individuals who do not belong. "These kids need safety now!"

Let's dial back a little bit here. He's traveling to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida this weekend. The sampling margin of error was plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.

The other way is to further harden schoolhouses, replacing teachers with armed guards and windows with bricks and steel.

So, here's that question again - how do killers get into schools? How do they get through security? "What security is there?" she yelled. And almost the first thing the President did after this most recent shooting was to complain that the shooter's mental illness hadn't been reported.

Tennesseans concerned about the violence want to know what action their legislators are taking. "And "#GUNREFORMNOW" was trending Thursday on Twitter.

President Donald Trump: "My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting".

But Senate Appropriations Chair Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, said he thinks the Legislature should now shelve all gun bills this session. "At least 17 lives have been lost".

Gun control in America is a very divisive issue, but the pleas from Florida are for US leaders to start looking past their politics.

But in the wake of any shooting or terror attack, Americans also expect solutions, a task complicated entirely by the country's ingrained differences over gun laws.

David Hogg is a senior student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

It's a horror that does not resonate with people like Cindy, a deep south Alabama native who worked with me for a brief period. Visitors must sign in with valid ID. "You never know when you'll need it. I don't go anywhere without it, you shouldn't either", she'd say. Every elementary school is fenced. "Look, I carry a gun".

It's not "politicizing" someone's death to do something to try to prevent even more deaths.

"I think that's something that you'll see the entire Legislature come together on in a renewed way", Negron said. With Republicans in the majority, Democrats said it's their call.
