They also say that life has had its challenges during the nearly two decades since they watched friends and teachers get shot by Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, and they offer advice to students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 students and faculty lost their lives. "They have a challenging job as it is".

Scott also met with students this week.

The school resource officer, a uniformed and armed deputy, was on the scene but didn't enter Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week when a gunman started firing at students and faculty members, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said Thursday.

Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old former student, was later arrested and charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder in the assault.

Florida's House speaker called it an "abject breakdown at all levels". Republicans, who dominate the chamber, dismissed it. Students who were at the Capitol ahead of their classmates found that Republicans steered the conversation away from gun restrictions. It also opposes many Democratic proposals to restrict gun ownership, including limits on the size of magazines or a ban on semiautomatic rifles of the sort Cruz used in his attack.

"No one with mental issues should have access to a gun".

The first caller said they had third-hand information that Cruz planned to shoot up the school. "It's called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them, they'd go for special training, and they would be there and you would no longer have a gun-free zone". Here's everything to know about the plans, how you can participate and more.

"If we are going to infringe on the Second Amendment, it has to be a policy that will work", Rubio said in an interview Thursday.

Gun-control advocates, meanwhile, have redoubled their push to ban assault rifles. The specific 17 minute time period is a tribute to the 17 innocent victims who lost their lives when Nikolas Cruz opened fire at the high school in Parkland, Florida on February 14. We call BS. They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun. "We give them a little bit of a bonus".

In modern active shooter procedures, law enforcement officers are trained to go toward an active shooter, as research shows an officer's presence can decrease the loss of life.

"They are monitoring the subject right now", one person says. It won't be happening again. Daniel Gelillo, a senior at Richard Montgomery High in Rockville, Maryland, helped organize the protest and said students aimed to pressure lawmakers to act on gun control.

After days of funerals for those killed in the attack, teachers began the emotionally fraught process of returning to the school Friday to collect belongings from classrooms that have been off-limits since the slayings.

A hundred Stoneman Douglas High School students traveled 400 miles from Parkland to the state capital and camped out overnight at the Tallahassee civic center, waiting for speak with legislators and the governor Wednesday.

Broward teachers union president Anna Fusco met with the teachers as they returned to campus Friday hailing them as "incredibly fearless and strong".
