Trump Addresses Nation After Florida School Shooting: 'Difficult Issue of Mental Health' Trump Addresses Nation After Florida School Shooting: 'Difficult Issue of Mental Health'

The call for action came after Wednesday's mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school, which killed 17. The dead include students and adults.

"Why was a student able to terrorize my school mr president", asked a student named only "nikki" on Twitter.

Trump also issued a proclamation Thursday honoring victims of the shooting at the Parkland, Florida, high school where 17 were killed. "And working together to save these children's lives is what this country needs".

While the latest mass shooting has reignited questions about America's permissive gun laws, Trump - who is the first president to have addressed the NRA gun lobby - is staunchly opposed to any additional gun control.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, did not mention guns as he said the Senate would observe a moment of silence at noon.

"No other information was included with that comment which would indicate a time, location or the true identity of the person who made the comment", Lasky said during a news conference.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder in the Wednesday afternoon shooting in Parkland, Florida. Could they find him and interview him?

Frantically, many students texted family members. Some even filmed the horrific scene on their cell phones. The shooter, identified as 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, fired rounds into the glass of the door with his semiautomatic rifle to gain access into the room.

The alleged gunman had a disturbing digital footprint - posing with knives and guns in several Instagram posts.

A MS man told CBS News' Jeff Pegues that he warned the Federal Bureau of Investigation last September about a comment allegedly posted by the suspected shooter on a YouTube video saying, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter".

Many former classmates describe Cruz as a loner and someone mentally disturbed. His adoptive father died of a heart attack when Cruz was a child, and his mother, Lynda Cruz, died November 1, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Cruz's actions have now led to the second-greatest loss of life from a shooting at a USA public school since the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook elementary, Reuters reports.

"Any action at this point, instead of complete stagnancy and blaming the other side of the political aisle, would be a step in the right direction", he said. He reportedly bought the gun used in the shooting legally.
