Florida, angry and grieving, takes gun protest to streets | The Tribune

24 Febrero 2018

Then it was over and 17 people were dead.

The FBI and Department of Justice are investigating why the tip about Cruz was not sent to field agents.

(ThyBlackMan.com) Recently at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, a former student (a teenage white boy) opened fire at the school injuring 14 and killing 17 people. We've seen tax reform but nothing to save our children's lives. Action just might have prevented this tragedy.

"Mr. Cruz was on Snapchat cutting both of his arms", the Florida DCF abuse hotline was told in August 2016, the paper reported. The simple answer is no one else is doing it. The shooter was Nikolas Cruz, 19, who was captured alive. Cruz, then 18, was listed as an "alleged victim" of medical neglect and inadequate supervision; his adoptive mother, then-68-year-old Lynda Cruz, the "alleged perpetrator".

"If you're a strong Second Amendment person, you need to slow down and take a look at reasonable things that can be done to answer these young people", said Ohio Gov. John Kasich. This visceral record of the horrifying events of Feb. 14 is helping motivate a new conversation about gun control. "There should be a background check - are you mentally ill or are you not mentally ill?"

The shooter could be monitoring the event themselves on social media and find more victims or elude capture that way.

Speaking to CNN, Douglas High School student Isabella Gomez singled out Trump's remark that students needing help should "turn to a teacher, a family member".

"What could our teachers do in that situation, rather than save themselves, just as we were?" Gomez said. "I feel like he really needs to take into consideration all this gun control". He said Trump would convene a discussion on school safety, though he provided few specifics. "It's my goal that this will never happen again in my state", Scott said.

The man designated to be Florida's next House Speaker, Republican Rep. Jose Oliva, indicated hours after the school shooting that he wouldn't be in favor of gun restrictions.

The younger age for long guns dates back to the 1880s.

The deadly gun rampage at a Florida high school on Wednesday took to 18 the number of school shootings across the United States so far this year - a phenomenon that authorities seem powerless to prevent. Journey said he lost two friends he had grown up with. Does that mean that funding will be returned to the CDC for research?

"A lot of people are saying that these kids are activists, these kids need to be politicians", she later told a reporter. "When someone is planning and premeditating an attack, they will figure out a way to evade those laws or quite frankly to comply with them in order to get around it".

Murphy called Rubio's comments "gun-industry pablum". It wasn't. Since then, 138 more people have died in school shootings. It's not a weapon that you can use to go hunting.

And we can't change this. Philip Rucker and Ed O'Keefe contributed from Washington.
