Shooting suspect harassed peers, bragged about gun

Donald Trump Florida killer 'could have been stopped'
| 20 February, 2018, 20:56

Called the "March for Our Lives", the students are turning their traumatic experience into a rallying cry to hold the nation's leaders accountable. They also want to make it more hard for people with histories of mental illness to legally access weapons.

The suspect in the Parkland shooting, Nikolas Cruz, 19, faces multiple murder charges in the deaths of 14 students and three staff members, and the wounding of more than a dozen others in a rampage that eclipsed Columbine as the country's worst mass shooting at a high school.

Among the students announcing the march was Emma Gonzalez, who captured worldwide attention with a powerful speech in which she assailed President Donald Trump over the multimillion-dollar support his campaign received from the gun lobby, and vowed Stoneman Douglas would be "the last mass shooting".

"Because they didn't want to, and now they just talk!" he wrote, referring to criticism from Democrats following Wednesday's shooting.

Student organisers told U.S. media that they were determined to make Wednesday's shooting a turning point in the national gun debate.

Mr Trump said previous year he would "never" infringe on the right to keep arms - a long-running and contested debate within the US. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., to CNN and MSNBC on Wednesday. Rubio, who has attracted criticism for accepting millions in political help from pro-gun groups, tweeted that he would participate.

"I'm going to be a professional school shooter", the comment said. And just as in Parkland, many other mass shooters, including Islamic terrorists, have previously been reported to law enforcement or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, but have either been ignored, or have been left alone after a brief inquiry.

In a TV interview, Republican Sen.


Sponsors of the gun show, which typically draws more than 10,000 attendees, did not consider canceling the event after the Parkland shooting.

Teenagers who survived the deadly Florida school shooting are calling for protests nationwide next month to pressure adult politicians to act on gun control-and they'll take the fight directly to Washington, D.C.

Chris Grady, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, believes the Florida government "are going to hear us out" as he and other students head to Tallahassee to urge for gun-law changes.

"This is it", he continued. President Donald Trump and some lawmakers say mental illness prompted the Valentine's Day slaughter, but people at Saturday's gun control rally say they want more done to make it harder to buy a gun fueling the long-running USA debate over gun control.

The students did not indicate how many people they expected to join their rallies.

"I told him there'd be rules and he followed every rule to the T", James Snead, 48, an army veteran and military intelligence analyst, told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. If you don't do anything to prevent this from continuing to occur, that number of gunshot victims will go up and the number that they are worth will go down. All I hear is mine, mine, mine, mine.

Cruz was reported to have been investigated by police and state officials as far back as 2016 after slashing his arm in a social media video, and saying he wanted to buy a gun. "We don't need guns in our community that can fire off 100 bullets in a matter of 10 minutes".

Congress has to get "off its backside" to "stare down the NRA and do the right thing", he said. They thought they had the only key, they said.
