NRA member: insane people do not need guns

NRA member: insane people do not need guns

"I'm coming to the floor to talk about something else, but let me just note once again for my colleagues: this happens nowhere else other than the United States of America", he said. "You haven't heard students speak up one after another after another after witnessing such carnage and speaking out with such conviction". Police arrested the suspect after a short manhunt, and have identified him as 19-year-old former student Nikolas Cruz. Some gun control proponents and legal experts said Wednesday's school shooting might have been thwarted if it had. He made no mention of the scourge of gun violence.

Hearings have yet to take place, but Patricia Brigham, co-chair of the Florida Coalition to Prevent Gun Violence, said the proposals face long odds in a statehouse controlled by Republicans who tend to toe the NRA line.

"We ought to say enough is enough", he said on CNN.

"We're making our schools and our children top priority", the president promised. What, exactly, President Trump plans to do to tackle the issue of mental health in order to keep schools safe remains unclear. Trump is right: We shouldn't have to fear that our kids will die at school-but we do. "We need to think less about taking sides and fighting each other politically, and just pulling together".

One day after a Florida school mass shooting, the 18th school shooting this year, and the 83rd of his presidency, the president for the first time addressed the nation on a school shooting.

He also said he'll be working with Congress "on many fronts".

Obama, who spoke to the nation multiple times after tragedies, made another call for some form of gun control in an afternoon tweet on the shooting at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The location of the speech carried symbolic weight, alluding to the longstanding trade relationship between the USA and Canada. Trudeau promoted his country's fast-track employment permit for certain workers, dubbed the "global skills strategy visa".


Cruz also participated in paramilitary training with a white nationalist militia called the Republic of Florida, a leader of the group said on Thursday.

Kannapolis City Schools administration reached out to help students, parents, and staff deal with the emotions and questions that arise after a tragic incident like the one in Parkland, Fla.

Alyssa Alhadeff and fellow victim Meadow Pollack will be buried in the Garden of Aaron at Star of David Memorial Gardens in North Lauderdale after separate funerals on Friday, The Associated Press reported.

Trump has had some missteps in this area since becoming president, which the official attributed to his personality.

Another funeral service is scheduled Sunday for 14-year-old Jaime Guttenberg.

President Donald Trump has arrived at a Florida hospital to meet medical professionals two days after a deadly shooting at a Broward County high school.

Kimmel, whose voice was cracking introduced a clip of Donald Trump's remarks and told the president to 'tell Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio - all the family men who care so much about their communities - that what we need - are laws.
