Texas Gov.'s Campaign Cancels Shotgun Giveaway After Santa Fe School Shooting

Pakistan       by Muhammad Irfan | Published

A Sante Fe High School student signs a cross placed outside the school to remember one of the 10 victims of the May 18 shooting. "We continue to plead that the money given to the victor is instead donated to the survivors' funds in Santa Fe".

On Wednesday, district teachers and support staff will return to school, the district said.

He was armed with a sawed-off shotgun and a.38 caliber handgun, according to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.

Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, is jailed on murder charges in Friday's attack.

"Even through her death, she will continue to be a diplomat".

"People are making this into a political issue", she said.

"I still think he's very confused about the incident".

The association says it has reached out to Santa Fe ISD's police chief and is awaiting a call to help provide services. "This isn't a time for prayers, and study and Inaction, it's a time for prayers, action and the asking of God's forgiveness for our inaction (especially the elected officials that ran to the cameras today, acted in a solemn manner, called for prayers, and will once again do absolutely nothing)", he wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.

"If we're dealing with student stress and anxieties and any bullying situations, then the problem will never come to the point where a teacher would even have to consider using a gun", she said.

He promised "swift and meaningful action" to "ensure that we will build a pathway to reforms so that other students will not have to live through a nightmare like these students had to go through".

He tells CNN's "State of the Union": "When you're facing someone who's an active shooter, the best way to take that shooter down is with a gun". This is the American people.

The newspaper received mixed reactions from the public, with some praising it for condemning gun violence in the United States, and others referring to it as "sickening".

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is urging a "hardening" of school buildings in the wake of a shooting that killed 10 people at a Texas high school. We've got, we've got shots fired right now.

"We can't just keep going the way that we are, because it's just going to keep happening", she said. "And we stand here and we wonder why this happens to certain students".

Classmates at the school described Pagourtzis as a quiet loner who played on the football team. "One of the shotgun shells was for my daughter", she said. Fisher repeatedly told him that she wasn't interested in going out with him, but that did not stop the suspect from approaching her. "He continued to get more aggressive". "I didn't want to upset anybody", Butler said.

Meanwhile, students around the country used a hashtag to respond to the Santa Fe High shooting and to advocate for gun control. It's not too soon to talk about guns.

The program trains people, using Federal Bureau of Investigation threat-assessment criteria, to go to schools and screen students, according to Billy Philips, an epidemiologist and director of the Office of Rural Health at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.
