Tim McGraw 'Deeply Moved' By Stoneman Douglas Student Gun Control Activists

Marshall Ganz, a senior lecturer of public policy at the Harvard Kennedy School, said that "public narrative" helps explain why the Parkland students are connecting with Americans in ways that politicians and advocacy groups can not.

Emma also spoke out about President Trump's response to the shooting and against the NRA.

Survivors from Stoneman Douglas and other gun control advocates descended on the state Capitol in Tallahassee on Wednesday to protest the legislature's inaction on gun control. "If you had a teacher who was adept at firearms, they could very well end the attack very quickly", Trump said.

Both Nelson and Deutch said they supported a total ban on assault weapons. "A disruption of the school will not be tolerated", he said.

The GOP leaders said the bill might enact a waiting period for rifle purchases and raise the legal limit for such purchases from 18 to 21, but they gave no assurances. Many are asking for laws to prevent weapons like the AR-15 used in the mass shooting from being as easily obtained. Why would we be so sick to make that up?

Calling schools "virtually wide-open soft targets", LaPierre added, "It should not be easier for a mad man to shoot up a school than a bank or a jewelry store".

As a House member, Sarasota state Sen.

The marches got support from parents, teachers, and school principals. "We don't want others to go through the kind of pain you have gone through". Or as the infamous former Trump associate Steve Bannon told author Michael Lewis, "It's not just sexual harassment, it's an antipatriarchy movement". SEN. MARCO RUBIO: I think in the name of 17 people, I can pledge to you that I will support any law that will prevent a killer like this from getting a gun.

The pressure cooker that is this nation's collective angst over guns let off an explosive hiss this week as outraged school kids, grieving parents and lawmakers squared off Wednesday in Florida and Washington D.C.

The debate breaches statehouse walls.

Trustee Jessica Kelly said this feels like a "tipping point", and she asked for ideas on how the school district could amplify the voices of students, teachers and parents on issues related to school safety and gun control.

While some students said their opinions have been belittled because they're still teenagers, they counter that they'll soon be voters and shouldn't be taken lightly. People related to Aurora shooting victims said they were appalled after being invited to the theater for its reopening. And then once I heard the helicopters I knew.

Besides considering concealed carrying of weapons by trained school employees - a concept Mr Trump has endorsed in the past - he said he planned to go "very strongly into age, age of purchase". "That it's not just them alone in this fight and that the students are working together". She paid a fine and took a firearm-safety class as part of a plea deal. They are comfortable around guns. Other student demonstrations were reported in Illinois, Florida and Texas. Before she was an AP government teacher, she was a U.S. Marine. "My instincts are to be a teacher". But research shows that iGen is also a unique generation - one that may be especially sensitive to gun violence. But he didn't once talk about gun control or restricting access to assault rifles. One week after the shooting, they opened the building to the public as a memorial to the victims. "I think that our students at the school have really been leading a movement and I'm so proud of our school for picking this up", Skopp said.

When asked by radio host Hugh Hewitt about arming teachers, the USA education secretary, Betsy DeVos, said states "clearly have the opportunity and the option to do that". And a deranged sociopath on his way to commit an act of murder in a school, with the outcome-knowing the outcome is going to be suicide, is not going to care if there's somebody there with a gun.

The prospective buyer would need to wait 10 business days to receive the license following the application and to renew their gun license every five years. If I want to drive, why do I have to go through courses and have all of these things checked to make sure I'm suitable to drive, but if I want to get a gun, I can just go buy one?
