Florida school shooting revives debate over gun laws

Video shows Nikolas Cruz doing target practice

While Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican from Florida - the site of the latest school shooting - suggested a killer's determination will always prevail against gun laws.

Moncton's J.B. Vanier grew up in Florida and graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2005. "This is not a mental health issue, it is a political issue, politician's who are unwilling to stand up to the NRA, and say no more. unless something is done our students and valiant teachers will continue to be slaughtered". And she's made it personal, invoking the president's 11-year-old son, Baron. Alhadeff screamed during an interview with CNN on Thursday. Chadwick has since apologized for the language she used and extended an invitation to Trump to discuss gun control during an upcoming visit to Parkland.

"What a great job you've done, and we appreciate it very much", Trump said. Do something. Action. We need it now.

"It's how people use it", Spike Tactical's Kit Cope told CNBC.

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

The rifle team at North Fort Myers High School in Florida received $37,000 in 2016, the district's JROTC program received $10,000 in cash and $27,000 in non-cash assistance two years earlier, according to tax records.

Cruz, who has appeared in court charged with 17 counts of murder, was described as an "outcast" who was 'crazy about guns'.

Alhadeff, while fighting back tears, continued by directly addressing President Donald Trump and the government's need to take action.

Eighteen-year-old Meadow was a senior planning to attend Lynn University in Boca Raton.

Since then, the AR-15 has been the common thread in almost every major mass shooting in the United States.

Kimmel said he agrees, "and here's what you do to fix that".

'Every time I think of those kids, it gets me mad, ' the then-president said.

Kimmel called on Trump to "force these allegedly Christian men and women who stuff their pockets from the NRA to do something, now". Let us know how they're feeling. Audible sobs rose from the crowd as the names of victims were read. At one point, people began chanting, "No more guns!".

Organizers behind the Women's March, an anti-Trump and female empowerment protest, called for a 17-minute walkout on March 14 to "protest Congress' inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods".

"A lot of people are saying that these kids are activists, these kids need to be politicians", she later told a reporter.

One Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School pupil helped start a nationwide "Students for gun legislation" petition, which stated: "Adults have failed us ... how many shootings will it take, how many innocent children have to die, until adults decide we, as our nation's children, are more important than our nation's guns". His lawyer called him a "broken human being" and Executive Chief Public Defender Gordon Weeks said he was under a suicide watch.
