School shooting survivors demand stricter gun laws

Kohen and Brianna Hall join hundreds of community members at a prayer vigil at Parkridge Church in Parkland Fla. Feb. 15 2018

Trump repeatedly asserted that his campaign didn't collude with anyone to win the 2016 election, but his reference to Wednesday's massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in a bid to prop up his no-collusion-case, stood out.

"If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a awful tragedy, and how it should never have happened, and maintain telling us how nothing is going to be done about it, I'm going to happily ask him how much money he received from the National Rifle Association", Gonzalez said, sparking cheers and applause.

Hogg was responding to Trump's tweet Saturday that Democrats hadn't passed any gun control measures during the brief time they controlled Congress with a supermajority in the Senate. "We're going to have that", said Scott. "I can tell you what the aspirations of the community are and I agree with them, is that that building should be demolished and a memorial erected there".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the shooting that killed 17 people Wednesday was a "tragic consequence" of the FBI's missteps and ordered a review of the Justice Department's processes. "This is not acceptable", Trump tweeted on Saturday night.

The students' pointed comments are the latest signs of increased pressure for gun control after the massacre. "We didn't see this side of him".

"We had this monster living under our roof and we didn't know", Kimberly Snead told the newspaper in an interview published Sunday. "Your lack of sympathy proves how pitiful of a person you are".

"Incredible job and everybody is talking about it", Trump reportedly said, after a meeting at the local sheriff's office. One of the major things she pointed out was that she believes it's not only a mental health issue, it's also a gun issue and that knives are not as risky as guns.

Cruz is willing to plead guilty to the 17 counts of premeditated murder to avoid Florida's death penalty, his public defender said Friday. They are also calling for anti-gun violence demonstrations in Washington and other cities March 24.

"President Trump talked about the American carnage in the United States".

"We want to give them an opportunity to be on the right side of this, " said Gonzalez.

"March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar", reads their mission statement. "Time and time again. That's going to be Marjory Stoneman Douglas in that textbook, and it's all going to be due to the tireless effort of the school board, the faculty members, the family members, and most importantly, the students".

Sunday's march is also meant as a show of solidarity for grieving students.

Sen. Christopher Coons, D-Del., told CBS that he doubted anything will happen until voters force changes. "That we come to a week that we just had this past week where we are losing more children, more families are hurting and in pain and suffering at the loss of their children who just simply got up and went to school and should have returned home".

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said the issue raised by the Florida shooting is that the Federal Bureau of Investigation could have prevented the shooting and added he thought Congress "will get something done this year" on the gun background check system.

Kasich, speaking on CNN, said gun rights advocates should consider "common-sense" regulations. "These are things that have to be looked at, and action has to be taken".
