Trump praises Florida emergency services as he visits mass shooting survivors

The school shooting on Wednesday reignited the national debate on gun control, with proponents, including students of the high school, urging Congress to do something to make it harder for people to access guns.

The FBI has admitted it failed to act on a tip-off about suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz, who has confessed to the shooting at a high school in Parkland in which 17 people died.

"When politicians say now is not the time, I want to ask them: When is?" While the alleged shooter may have had several issues, he also lived in a society where Sen.

The owners of the gun shop that sold Cruz the rifle said they were "mortified" and "disgusted" it was used to kill people. He did promise to tackle school safety and "the hard issue of mental health".

According to the paper, DCF's investigation was completed that November 12.

Pence is traveling in Texas for fundraising and to inspect the U.S. They also accused some politicians of being more concerned about protecting the firearms lobby than children.

And how about we stop blaming the victims for something that was the student's fault, the fault of the people who let him buy the guns in the first place, those at the gun shows, the people who encouraged him to buy accessories for his guns to make them fully automatic, the people who didn't take them away from him when they knew he expressed homicidal tendencies, and I am not talking about the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that Congress should focus on whether existing laws - including those created to prevent mentally ill people from getting guns - are working.

A person close to Cruz called the FBI's tip line on January 5 and provided information about Cruz's weapons and his erratic behavior, including his disturbing social media posts.

During the funeral for 18-year-old Meadow Pollack, her father looked down at his daughter's plain pine coffin and screamed in anguish as Gov. Rick Scott and 1,000 other mourners looked on.

Wray said he was "committed to getting to the bottom of what happened", and Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered an immediate review to ensure "effective response to indications of potential violence". The leader of a white nationalist militia called the Republic of Florida said Cruz was a member of his group and had participated in exercises in Tallahassee. On Friday, he visited shooting survivors and first responders. This is unquestionably an issue of mental illness. Cruz had been expelled from the high school for undisclosed disciplinary reasons and former classmates described him as an outcast and troublemaker with a fascination for weaponry. After the Sandy Hook slayings, President Barack Obama quickly attended an emotional evening vigil in Newtown, where he read aloud the names of each victim and promised to use "whatever power" he had to prevent future shootings.

Cruz faces 17 counts of first-degree murder in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High, is being held at the Broward County Jail without bond. The paper said it also received a copy of the report.

Trump made the stops on the way to a pre-planned Presidents Day weekend trip to his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago.

Mrs. Trump, for her part, thanked law enforcement officials "for taking care of our children" and added: "They were put through a lot in what they were experiencing two days ago and we need to take care of them".
