Massacred children had armed guard: It didn't help one bit

Massacred children had armed guard: It didn't help one bit

About 100 students walked out of Clayton High School to show their support for eight classmates who gathered to talk about the gun issue, including student Neel Vallurupalli.

CNN obtained an internal email from Coral Springs Police Chief Tony Pustizzi from two days after the shooting, which stated he understood another agency gave the "impression" it provided "the majority of the rescue efforts" while his agency went unrecognized.

In the wake of national contempt - including from the President - being heaped on the Broward County deputy who did not rush to aid people being shot to death inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School - allegations have arisen that more deputies may also have waited. The FBI failed to aggressively investigate Cruz's social media warnings that he meant to become a "professional school shooter".

US President Donald Trump on Friday cast doubt on the character of an armed deputy who failed to intervene during last week's school shooting in Florida, saying he froze or was a "coward".

BOOKER: Scott, and the Republican-controlled legislature, have for several years steadily expanded gun rights for residents. Scott lamented that Cruz was identified by authorities as a potential danger but was still able to legally purchase weapons.

He owned a collection of weapons.

The Heat aren't the only professional sports team in South Florida honoring the victims of last week's school shooting. Most state and local officials at the meeting did not object.

Those students, who rapidly turned themselves into activists and organizers after 17 of their fellow students and teachers were murdered in their school, have become the most visible face of this new phase of the gun debate, and conservatives are absolutely livid about it. However, Trump has also called for raising the minimum age for purchasing semi-automatic rifles, a move the NRA opposes. "DO NOT come to Florida for spring break unless gun legislation is passed". But it was coupled with a controversial measure aimed at significantly expanding permits for carrying concealed weapons. Part of the plan includes requiring one armed officer - either a sworn sheriff's deputy or a police officer - for every 1,000 students at every school by the start of the 2018 school year in the fall.

Samsung to unveil next Galaxy smartphones at MWC
Sony Xperia XZ2: Not much is known about the Sony Xperia XZ2 but it is expected to be a phone that brings Sony back in the game. Sony Xperia XZ2 is one of the hottest smartphone series launching at the Mobile World Congress (MWC ) 2018 next week.

Jack Kingston, a CNN commentator and a former congressman from Georgia, said on CNN, "Their sorrow can very easily be hijacked by left-wing groups - who have an agenda".

Preparing to return to campus Friday, he said he needed to read his bad-day file.

But, as to the question of whether semi-automatics can be banned- CT did so in 2013 after the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting. Classes resume Wednesday with an abbreviated schedule for students through the end of next week. If a one-on-one faceoff occurs, the chances of a school employee with a handgun prevailing over an AR-15-carrying shooter with Kevlar and protective headgear are slim and none.

Runcie told reporters outside the Parkland school that he did not want to see teachers in his district carrying guns in the future.

The cops entered the building to engage the shooter on their own, and then a new batch of Broward County deputies arrived, and two of those officers joined the police inside the building, the sources said.

"He trained his whole life but when it came time to do something he didn't have the courage", he said.

The plainer reason is as people who were touched personally by gun violence and as young people - old enough to be informed and articulate but still children - the students make extremely sympathetic advocates, garnering attention and a respectful hearing for their views.
