'Answer hate with love': President Trump addresses the nation after Florida shooting

A teacher credited with saving dozens of students and teachers during the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday says she is exhausted of politicians offering up words and nothing more after tragedies like the one that occurred at a high school there on Wednesday.

With the 12th school shooting in the first few weeks of 2018 - this one leaving 17 dead to make it among the nation's deadliest mass-murders - local educators were quick to share both disgust and fear that nothing will ever be done. "There are games that literally replicate and give people the ability to score points for doing the very same thing that these students are doing inside of schools, where you get extra points for finishing someone off who's lying there begging for their life". Chris Murphy, D-Conn., took to the Senate floor to criticize congressional inaction on gun issues.

During a speech in Washington this morning, the attorney general called for "effective enforcement of our gun laws - focusing on criminals and unsafe people, mentally ill people", before moving on to a new action he would like taken.

"We need to keep guns out of the hands of risky people". For example, it added people who were on Social Security for mental illness to the national background check database.

While the United States makes up 4.4% of the world's population, it has nearly half of the civilian-owned guns in the world. It does not, in any way, threaten that right.

And when it comes to owning a gun, age limits are even looser.

The mother's impassioned remarks left CNN's anchor, Brooke Baldwin, who was broadcasting outside the school the day after the shooting, momentarily speechless as she choked back tears.

From a mosaic of public records, interviews with friends and family and online interactions, it appears Cruz was unstable and violent to himself and those around him - and that when notified about his threatening behavior, law enforcement did little to stop it. "You need to help us, now".

White House aides told Bloomberg that the decision not to golf was a show of respect for the victims and grieving families of the school shooting in Florida.

Cadets wear military uniforms with ranks and insignias similar to those of the military branch with which they are affiliated. In early 2017, Cruz bought an AR-15-style rifle from a small nearby gun store, Sunrise Tactical Supply in Coral Springs.

Nor, he said, do they suggest that any Americans knew they were dealing with Russian operatives. The charges against the Russians include conspiracy, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

People will argue that we can't know if this law would have saved lives yesterday. They made me respect their rules. It only saved the NRA.

Twenty-three states have set minimum age requirements for the ownership of long guns, ranging from 14 in Minnesota to 21 in IL and Hawaii.

It can be argued that this shooting is on Trump for revoking this bill.

What do we know about the suspect?

But the laws in this country continue to move in the other direction - away from regulation.

"The president wants to take leadership and actually fix this problem and create best practices across the country", Shah told FOX, saying "there are a lot of specific policy proposal we'll be looking at".

Donald Trump is a careless and reckless leader at the best of times, and a unsafe one most of the time.

She expressly blamed "the people who let him buy the guns in the first place", but also heaped scorn on legislators for not doing enough.
