School shooting in Florida reignites gun control debate among politicians

School shooting in Florida reignites gun control debate among politicians

President Donald Trump says he hopes law enforcement members are "getting the credit" for their response to a deadly Florida high school shooting. Trump plans to spend the weekend at his Palm Beach estate, about 40 miles from Parkland.

President Donald Trump shakes hands with doctor Igor Nichiphorenko (L) beside First Lady Melania Trump while visiting at Broward Health North medical center.

"I will be leaving for Florida today to meet with some of the bravest people on earth - but people whose lives have been totally shattered".

They found out 17 people were shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School through social media.

White House spokesman Raj Shah said Friday on Fox News that Mr Trump is prioritizing a push for improved security at schools but said much of the work will have to be done at the local level. "It's a dream. It hasn't hit me yet".

CBS reports that in 2013, when Cruz was 14 years old, his mother called for help saying her son had developmental and learning disabilities, and was becoming irate and throwing things because he was losing a video game.

President Trump has not discussed the possibility of gun reform.


We've got more newsletters we think you'll find interesting. "And that's what we need to stop".

"We have spoken with victims and families, and deeply regret the additional pain this causes all those affected by this horrific tragedy", said Federal Bureau of Investigation director Christopher Wray, who took up his post in August.

Bernstein says he would support stricter gun regulations like mental health screenings.

President Trump stopped by the hospital Friday to meet face to face with survivors of the Parkland shooting.

Rather than making the customary short eastward trip to Mar-a-Lago, the presidential motorcade headed west on Southern Boulevard and south on Florida's Turnpike through Palm Beach County to Broward County.

In a departure from the Trumps' original schedule, Mrs. Trump arrived at Air Force One separately from her husband for the flight to Florida and boarded the plane while reporters were kept away. He would not respond to questions about changing the nation's gun laws.

Cruz, who was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School previous year, told investigators that he walked the hallways of the school Wednesday afternoon, shooting students and teachers with an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, a report from the Broward County Sheriff's Office said.
