Legislative aide fired over claim survivors of school shooting were actors

Dozens of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students arrived to Florida's capital on Tuesday with one goal in mind: Change the state's gun laws.

While a number of GOP senators voted for the SAFE Act in 2013, other Republican senators were opposed, and five years later, still want to repeal the measure, saying there are other ways to keep schoolchildren safe. Stoneman Douglas students who survived spoke out on Saturday, and the nation heard. But Kimberly Snead says they had no idea he was capable of such carnage.

Survivors of the Parkland shooting had travelled 600km to Tallahassee to lobby lawmakers ahead of the vote. "I am on the way with my victim advocates and we will be available in full force to help all victims and their families with any services they need". And it appears that sentiment has become part of the anthem of Stoneman Douglas High students as they've made their way to Tallahassee to meet with state lawmakers today.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters that the President also did not rule out raising the legal age at which someone could buy an AR-15 style weapon, the type of firearm used by the 19-year-old confessed shooter in Florida.

On Wednesday, the students are planning a rally to demand a change in state laws to prevent a repeat of the shooting last week. Though it has been referred to three subcommittee or committee stops, it has not received a hearing in the Criminal Justice Subcommittee, where it must first be considered.

They spent the seven-hour ride checking their phones, watching videos and reading comments on social media about the shooting, some of which accused them of being liberal pawns.

"17 pp in Parkland were just murdered w/an AR-15, + the FL House just passed @RossSpano's HR 157 declaring PORN as a public heath (sic) risk".

Adding more school resource officers, more money for mental health screenings, and arming teachers with guns are all focal points. He said he planned to have a proposal by Friday. "That's the goal", he said.

They are offering pizza and ice cream donated by local restaurants and a place to plan strategy before the students sleep overnight at the Tucker Civic Center downtown.

Interested in Gun Control?

"No one in the world with the slightest little hint of a soul isn't moved by this tragedy", Republican strategist Rick Wilson said.

A sixth-grader who allegedly posted a threat on Instagram to kill students this week at the Central Charter School in Lauderdale Lakes was arrested Tuesday and faces a felony charge of intimidation, according to law enforcement officials. They say they believe they have enough supporters for the measures to pass.

"We're fighting for the friends we lost".

"I really don't want to see this politicized into a gun debate", Republican Sen.

Police say shooting suspect Nikolas Cruz confessed to gunning down 14 students and three adults at the high school he was expelled from previous year. This is about moving forward with everybody.

"I'm just interested in making sure nothing like what happened in Florida ever happens in Savannah, or anywhere else", she said.
