Trump suggests more guns in schools to combat shootings

Police say Cruz used an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

Many student survivors of the shooting have started a campaign for gun control that targets the NRA, including demands that Florida Republican Sen.

So that's the talk, what's the walk?

The NRA might once have been about promoting safe gun use for sporting purposes but that was before they gained the power they have over the gutless wonders who pass for our elected representatives. A possible reason: The National Rifle Association supports this idea and the gun manufacturers supported by the NRA would make a heck of a lot of money. Those include measures to expand federal background checks, allow authorities to issue emergency orders to take guns from people identified as a threat to themselves or others, and raise the minimum age for rifle purchases to 21.

Online backlash heightened this week after NRA leaders attacked the Democratic Party and gun control activists, saying they were exploiting the Florida shooting. And on and on.

"I'll say it again loud and clear - we're parents too", she said.

"Many in legacy media love mass shootings", Loesch said on stage "Now I'm not saying that you love the tragedy".

NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre speaks during the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday.

That's why, despite polls that show large majorities in support of things like universal background checks or even a nationwide assault ban, pro-gun rights politicians have show little concern about avoiding these topics over the last several decades. On Feb. 28, 2017, President Donald Trump signed a law nixing a regulation aimed at keeping guns out of the hands of severely mentally ill people.

Trump was leaving the White House to attend the Conservative Political Action Conference when he said: "When it came time to get in there and do something", Florida deputy Scot Peterson "didn't have the courage or something happened".

A top Democrat tweeted about his fear that, under heat from the gun lobby, the president will melt.

"I would be in favor of raising the age limit from 18 to 21 ... and we do need to focus on mental health in this country".

Americans are rightly frightened, outraged and frustrated by school shootings and the unnecessary loss of life. So, when Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said, "You're not standing up for them until you say, 'I want less weapons, '" his comment was met with a standing applause.

In both the United Kingdom and Australia following school shootings there was a huge crackdown on who could buy guns and what they could buy them for and since then there hasn't been another school shooting. And if you believe you are more secure with guns in your home, you should note this: The number of gun deaths per state each year is directly proportional to the number of guns per 100 citizens in that particular state. While LaPierre's speech was peppered with obvious applause lines, the audience didn't seem as enthused as they were only moments earlier by Loesch's remarks.
