'Numerous fatalities' in school attack

'Numerous fatalities' in school attack

It was perhaps a recognition that upholding the right to bear arms comes at a serious cost, in this case the lives of young people who should have been safe in school.

Trump tweeted that he will meet with people "whose lives have been totally shattered", but did not elaborate on his plans.

Mr Trump added that he was working with Congress "on many fronts" but did not specify what those fronts were.

The president's visit to the Parkland area north of Miami came amid growing anger among parents and students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School over America's seeming unwillingness to toughen gun control laws.

Support for the walkout, announced Friday, increased over the weekend on social media, with parents and teachers around the country vowing to participate, and actresses like Justine Bateman, Amber Tamblyn and Piper Perabo along with W. Kamau Bell of CNN all offering their support to the planned protest.

On Sunday, students who escaped the deadly school shooting in Florida focused their anger at President Donald Trump, contending that his response to the attack had been needlessly divisive.

To others, she wrote: "Please kiss your children, tell them you love them, stand by them no matter what they want to be".

"We are here for you, whatever you need, whatever we can do to ease your pain", he said.


"We remain as deeply committed today as we were two years ago, in the aftermath of the massacre at Pulse, to the fight for common sense gun legislation", said Equality Florida in its statement. "No child, no teacher should ever be in danger in an American school", he continued.

Within minutes, he had killed or mortally wounded 17 people, and injured a dozen more.

Trump told reporters he spoke to the victims of the incident in the hospital.

"You can stop the guns from getting into these children's hands", Alhadeff said to the president.

"The caller provided information about Cruz's gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behaviour, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

Wednesday's mass shooting has once again renewed calls for gun control.

The gunman, a insane person, just walks right into the school, knocks down the window of my child's door and starts shooting, shooting her, and killing her.
