Area gun shop owner talks gun control after Florida shooting


He talked about students being threatened with violence in recent days, and said he hopes law enforcement agencies are investigating those threats to prevent further trauma.

Law enforcement agencies have been criticized for not heeding warnings that the suspected gunman, Nikolas Cruz, was unsafe.

The half-day began with fourth period so that the almost 3,300 students could first be with the people they were with during the shooting two weeks ago.

He also doesn't think much of the vitriol directed at the students who have more become the public faces of the student body, like David Hogg and Emma González.

This week, both students and teachers have expressed the need and the relief they are getting from therapy animals.

"I'm pissed! Cause my daughter - I'm not going to see again", he said earlier this month.

Rumors suggested the pair's lack of preparation was due in part to some long-standing hostility between the two performers. It was the biggest awards debacle of in all of Oscars history.

Barna said students maintained their composure throughout the school day, but it was hard to ignore the spaces created by classmates who were killed two weeks ago or those still recovering from injuries.

Peterson followed Broward Sheriff's Office protocol in the case of outdoor gunfire, which calls for the officer to take cover and launch a "Code Red" lockdown of the school, DiRuzzo says. "When you see the empty desks, it's real". In the meantime, Hendry says cellphone video from the shooting could help save lives in future attacks. And a campaign started by Parkland student Cameron Kasky had raised almost $2.8 million as of Wednesday morning. "Hopefully they'll have a good day, a good week, and mentally, going forward, they will be all right", a parent said.

ALLEN: Today students began the day by returning to their fourth period class.

The superintendent says students from Charles Page High School also made a decision to walk out after hearing about the rally at the ninth-grade school.

"Scheduling a pause in the school day only for those supporting the goals of the walkout would be legally problematic for the district". So it's going to be very hard for us. "We took a major step in the recovery process". But neither one of them said that they think guns are - they want to focus on guns. We as a Bradley community must show them we're listening - and that every voice matters here.

The hundreds of police officers on hand at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday brought comfort dogs, a donkey, and horses.

"It leads to a sense that nuance is a kind of weakness", he tells Here & Now's Robin Young. "You are an outstanding teacher". The measures he proposed did not include arming teachers, but he declined to say whether he would veto a sweeping package that includes that provision.

Students continue to demand that lawmakers change gun laws, and several traveled Monday to Washington to speak to members of Congress. Students have pressured companies to end discount programs for NRA members.

Across the country, students who are accustomed to regular lockdown drills to prepare for the possibility of a mass shooting have staged walkouts calling for more gun control.

In Parkland, the last two weeks have been punctuated by vigils, marches, funerals for classmates and teachers, and trips to grief counseling. The last of the victims, Martin Duque, a soccer-loving freshman, was laid to rest Sunday, the same day students returned to campus for a brief orientation. Students who walk out will be counted absent from any class or classes they miss.

The building where the violence unfolded - Building 12 - is now ringed by a chain-link fence. The harsh criticism of Peterson's actions is raising questions about the role of law enforcement officers in schools and the meaning of cowardice as it relates to their responsibility.
