Florida shooting suspect may lose public defender after reports of $800K inheritance

Florida shooting suspect may lose public defender after reports of $800K inheritance

"What an wonderful man who lost his life protecting the children".

Swift commended the students on safely and respectfully participating in Wednesday's walkout, saying she was proud of how they raised their voices on school safety concerns. They don't want thoughts and prayers. So you're up against - and the students are up against - some powerful opposition.

So they took the metro to Capitol Hill and marched to the White House, chanting, "We have a voice".

Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter, Jaime, was killed last week, had harsh words for Rubio, a Republican from Florida.

What he wants: Guttenberg confronted Rubio directly during the Town Hall, angrily telling him that his comments about the shooting "and those of your president this week have been pathetically weak".

Several hundred students marched to spread the message that incidents like the shooting that left 17 people dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School can never happen again.

Corcoran said the news did not dissuade him from moving ahead with what he was calling the "marshal" plan to let local law-enforcement officials train and deputize someone at the school who would be authorized to carry a gun. He wouldn't say he would turn down an NRA contribution. But no authority put those clues together, and the result was another school shooting that most likely could have been prevented.

Teachers carrying a concealed gun could end attacks "very quickly", Mr Trump said.

Avery Anger, 14, hid in a closet during the shooting.

Baskett said she does not like the idea of students missing instructional time for demonstrations, but she would like to develop ways for adults to use their experience and contacts to help students further their cause. And she will tell you that schoolteachers have more than enough responsibilities right now than to have to have the awesome responsibility of lethal force to take a life.

Both Nelson and Deutch said they supported a total ban on assault weapons.

At Dublin Scioto High School near Columbus, Ohio, about 200 students sat outside in silence for 17 minutes and wrote notes of support that will be mailed to survivors of the Florida shooting.

He said, "I knew that Aaron would be running to save lives, I just knew it". He said the young people should hold lawmakers accountable for making their schools and other community places safer or they won't be re-elected. Encouraged by President Trump's tweet on Thursday, in which he praised LaPierre and other NRA leaders as being "Great American Patriots" who will "do the right thing", the gun lobby could actually benefit, financially and by reputation among its fans, from the Parkland shooting. It stops here with this administration and me.

"His point was (Trump needs) to come to Parkland, we're not going there", she said.

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

The Town Hall was the most compelling two hours of TV during the February sweeps period, though Olympic hockey fans watching the USA women's victory a few hours later understandably will dispute that.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida is giving fellow Sen. From the massacre at Columbine High to the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary to the massacre at Stoneman Douglas High, the only thing that significantly changed is the roster of victims. But he didn't once talk about gun control or restricting access to assault rifles. They warned politicians they'll vote out lawmakers who don't address school safety.

"We took 17 bullets to the heart", Corin said.

Dana Fisher, a University of Maryland expert on United States social protests, notes that the student movement comes at a time of heightened political activism following Donald Trump's election, which reignited a culture of political protest starting with the historic Women's March the day after his inauguration.

The group of five teenagers said they have been visiting offices at the Capitol hoping to speak with political leaders and representatives. That informational vacuum made it hard for Americans far from Colorado to truly grasp what had just happened, to hear and see and feel the anguish those students were facing. Dear Congress, how numerous thoughts and prayers I have received do I need to check in for some damn action? A poll released this week by ABC News/Washington post says 42 percent of Americans believe teachers with guns could have prevented the Florida shooting.

It's not yet clear what effect Wednesday will have on legislation.
