Obama on Florida shooting: We are grieving, 'but we are not powerless'

Gun ownership in the US responsible for Florida shooting

Suspected gunman Nikolas Cruz is accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school.

Trump has cited mental health before as a cause for mass shootings, dismissing questions about gun control.

"Tell those Congressmen and lobbyists, who infest that swamp you said were going to drain - force these allegedly Christian men and women that stuff their pockets with money from the NRA year after year after year to do something now", Kimmel continued. And don't tell me "it's not the time" to talk about the issue. And in 2011, the Legislature even forced cities and counties to get rid of stricter, local gun-control measures.

Instead, we need rules that make it harder for shooters to enter schools with guns.

The mother's impassioned remarks left CNN's anchor, Brooke Baldwin, who was broadcasting outside the school the day after the shooting, momentarily speechless as she choked back tears.

This was the worst high school shooting in American history, but in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School, 20 children in grade 1 were shot and killed.

He had already been slated to travel to Florida to spend the weekend at his Palm Beach estate, which is about 40 miles from Parkland. He'll draw the boundaries so tight that "only his family and his bouncers will live in the US", says a senior colleague in Mumbai, hearing my weekly rant from an icy outpost in the US. Parents who sent their kids to school this morning - imagine that - many people send their kids to school. The victim survived and the shooter was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

The superintendent of the school district Robert Runcie said in a press conference Thursday "our students are asking for that conversation and I hope we can get it done in this generation but if we don't, they will". In May, his government unveiled a controversial policy called the National Firearms Agreement that radically strengthened Australia's gun laws.

I can't fathom what Parkland residents are going through. But for some, it's not enough. If the folks in Florida keep electing him why am I supposed to care about yesterday?

Broward County Public Schools superintendent Robert Runcie said that there were "numerous" fatalities in today's shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School. "America is waiting on you".

Trump says the entire nation "with one heavy heart" is praying for the victims and their families.

The massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida, is the 18th school shooting of 2018.

Other lawmakers have also called for gun control.

The issue commonly arises when a court or government agency is appointing a conservator or a guardian for an adult because of mental impairment. "We're not taking anybody's guns away and we're not infringing on anybody's right to hunt or to protect themselves". Just on the basis of reward and punishment, there's an inevitable punishment but the reward is so great that you go ahead and do it despite the punishment-which to me bespeaks disordered cognition.

Once the magnitude of the Florida tragedy became clear, the White House canceled the briefing.

The Times' White House correspondentMaggie Haberman, tweeted, "The president's favorite paper" along with the image.

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