Trump suggests armed deputy at Florida school was a 'coward'

The caller said Cruz is suicidal and could be a "school shooter in the making", according to police records.

Although not in the governor's plan, proposals in the House and Senate would make all gun purchases subject to the same 72-hour waiting period now in place for buying handguns in Florida, which leaders said allows time for criminal history checks.

In addition to age limits, Scott said he wanted to change state laws to make it "virtually impossible for anyone who has mental issues to use a gun", echoing similar calls by U.S. President Donald Trump.

Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old former student at the school, has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

In addition, anyone involuntarily committed under the Baker Act must surrender all firearms for at least 60 days.

Democrats blasted the plans by Scott and lawmakers as too little, too late. "Banning specific weapons and punishing law-abiding citizens is not going to fix this", he said.

The walkout is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m., and will last 17 minutes to honor each of the victims at Parkland.

He spoke as staff members were returning to Stoneman Douglas High School for the first time since the massacre. "Alaina Petty. Meadow Pollack ..." he said slowly. Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, before several busloads of Parkland students arrived in Tallahassee Wednesday.

"Anyone who wants guns in schools has no understanding of what goes on inside them - or worse, doesn't care", she said. "I have seen many officers who are able to do that but I have also seen some officers who weren't", Cohen said. It would be the first waiting period in more than three decades, and it's likely to provoke opposition from the state's sizeable and vocal population of gun owners. Long guns, including the semiautomatic AR-15-style assault rifle used in the February 14 attack, can be bought by people as young as 18 under current law.

"I know there are some who are advocating a mass taking of Second Amendment rights for all Americans".

The 2018 car's predecessor, the SF70H, was Ferrari's most competitive F1 offering in years, helping Vettel to five race wins. Asked about potential "mind games", Hamilton smiled. "I just drive faster".

What teachers say they'd rather be armed with instead of guns
Sayre what she thought of that proposal she laughed, but it wasn't what you'd call a happy laugh. Obviously, President is obsessed with the idea of more guns in the hands of more people.

Scott said the plan will address strengthening gun laws to keep "guns away from risky and violent people".

Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart, suggested that an assault weapons ban would violate the Constitution. Even in hard times, we have to follow the Constitution.

The second amendment in the United States constitution protects the "right to keep and bear arms".

Scott called for an anonymous K-12 "See Something, Say Something" hotline, website and mobile app, funding "to require access to dedicated mental health counselors to provide direct counseling services", the creation of "threat assessment" teams at each school, and "crisis intervention training for all school personnel".

"The governor's plan doesn't do one thing to ensure comprehensive criminal background checks or ban assault rifles, like the AR-15", Nelson said.

Mr Trump has said he supports raising the age at which a person can buy a gun from 18 to 21 and insists the NRA would back such a proposal. "Keeping guns away from unsafe people and people with mental issues is what we need to do". And it has sparked proposals by President Donald Trump and others to designate more people - including trained teachers - to carry arms on school grounds. "My focus is let law enforcement do the keeping us safe and let teachers focus on teaching".

The carnage also has raised questions about whether law enforcement agencies did all they could to detect and follow up on possible warning signs of last week's gun violence in advance. "We absolutely must have an up or down vote".

"It doesn't complicate my efforts", he said after a committee hearing in the Capitol.

"An open dialogue is critical", Scott said. We lost coaches. I've been to the funerals.
