Critical week for gun control debate Critical week for gun control debate

When a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida high school last week, youngsters around the globe watched the terrifying images and accounts unfold nearly in real time.

"I told him there'd be rules and he followed every rule to the T", James Snead, 48, an army veteran and military intelligence analyst, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

"I'm really hoping that as students become the real force behind it, it gains a little more momentum, because it's our voices that seem to carry", said Carolyn Moor, an 18-year-old senior organizing a walkout at Mountain View High School. The bureau also said on Friday that a January 5 tip that came across its Public Access Line, warning that Cruz might be planning a "school shooting" and detailing his guns, was not passed on to its Miami field office and was never investigated. No handguns associated with Cruz have been recovered by authorities, according to the official.

Government records show that a number of agencies may have missed warning signs regarding the mental health state of accused Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz. Gary Farmer of Broward County.

Cruz, 19, was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder after the Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

The district said they hope to have faculty and staff back by the end of the week and the students back by next week.

The Broward County, Fla., Sheriff's Department received dozens of calls about Cruz over the years, and former neighbors said his home "stood out for its turbulence on an otherwise-quiet street", Naples Daily News reported. A school fight that was captured on camera a little more than a year ago is the latest development.

The vote was "heartbreaking", she said.

If you didn't watch or hear about Emma Gonzalez's compelling speech about gun control over the weekend, then it's required viewing starting right now. The students split into several groups to talk with lawmakers and other state leaders about gun control, the legislative process, and mental health issues.

"They can change the world, and we can only go with them", Darren Levine, a teacher at the school, said of students at an anti-violence rally Monday. The couple says Cruz told them he was sorry.

USA hockey player's father diagnosed with norovirus at Winter Olympics
Games officials have told players to fist-bump one another rather than shaking hands to prevent transmission of norovirus, which is highly contagious.

A September 2016 video shared by ABC News shows Cruz wearing a white shirt and khakis while fighting with other students.

"They had a chance to stop it today", she said.

Referring to gun control advocates, he said: "Sometimes I wish they were right, that this would fix it, but it won't ..." The US Army said it awarded three victims in the school's junior ROTC program - Alaina Petty, Peter Wang and Martin Duque - with Medals for Heroism for their "acceptance of danger and extraordinary responsibilities".

"My school is being shot up and I am locked inside".

With signs that read, "Blood on your hands NRA", and "Love your KIDS not your GUNS", the student protesters are ringing alarm bells loud and clear: It's time for gun reform, today, in the USA, and if things don't change, these kids will make the changes happen on their own terms. "These kids have got to go to safe schools". Cruz was allegedly abusive toward her before they broke up.

But Israel said his deputies often find their "hands are tied" by laws.

The couple said they are inspired by the "courage and eloquence" of the survivors-turned-activists from the Parkland school. "That has to be done in this day and age".

But, he said, "the thought that you get to wave a wand and change the law is something that is probably going to collide with reality".

"They deserve and we deserve to have them confined, and when they're examined and somebody says they're ready to be released, they should be released and they shouldn't be able to come over with an order and have us give them their handguns", Israel said.
