Florida School Shooting: Hundreds Attend Gun Rally

Florida School Shooting: Hundreds Attend Gun Rally

More than 1,000 people attended a candlelight vigil Thursday night near the school, and at one point some began chanting, "No more gun!".

Before leaving Washington on Friday, Mr Trump said on Twitter he planned to meet with "some of the bravest people on earth - but people whose lives have been totally shattered".

The president also says he's "working with Congress on many fronts".

Pence is addressing the shooting at a Parkland, Florida, high school during a stop in San Antonio, Texas.

"Equality Florida joins our fellow Floridians and the nation in grieving the 17 lives taken and those injured in yet another school mass shooting", said Equality Florida in a statement.

The president and first lady Melania Trump are visiting Broward Health North Hospital in Pompano Beach. Alhadeff said as she looked into the camera, her voice rising.

Thousands of people - including students who survived a deranged killer's rampage in their high school - demanded stricter gun control laws Saturday in Florida, as they blasted the politicians who they said merely pay lip service to their grief.

Vinicius converted the spot-kick before celebrating with a dance in front of Vitoria's ultras - we say dance, he thrusted at them. In total, nine players received red cards and six players were sitting on yellows before the game came to a screeching halt.

"I'll tell you who appreciates it, too, is the parents", Trump said. "No more guns!" Lori Alhadeffs 14-year-old daughter Alyssa was killed and invoked the president's 11-year-old son, Barron, as she angrily called for help.

"To every parent, teacher and child who is hurting so badly, we are here for you, whatever you need, whatever we can do, to ease your pain".

Many of these demonstrators are calling for a ban on assault rifles, including the AR-15, the weapon Nikolas Cruz allegedly used to carry out the massacre. "Our children are counting on us to keep them safe from harm".

Trump spoke about a female victim he met at the hospital he said was shot four times, including in the lung.

Speaking to United States television, Cameron Kasky, a junior at the school, said the March 24 march will provide a time to talk about gun control.

However, it has been noted that previous year the president signed a law that made it easier for people with mental health issues to buy guns.

In February 2017 Trump signed a bill eliminating a regulation brought in by Barack Obama's government which made it harder for people with severe mental health problems to purchase guns.
