The latest on the Parkland school shooting

Stoneman Douglas to re-open to students Feb. 27

There is an excitement among the students, who sense that they may be on the cusp of starting a national movement.

Kyle Kashuv, Kai Koerber and Olivia Feller were among dozens of students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland who traveled to Florida's capital city today to demand gun restrictions, one week after 17 of their classmates and teachers were gunned down. "We know what we want".

"I have all these little kids here", she said. Cruz killed 17 students and adults and wounded at least 14 others.

As the students' movement gains visibility, they have faced backlash from bots and trolls who spread conspiracy theories about them and accuse them of being "crisis actors". Police have charged Cruz, who had been kicked out of Douglas for disciplinary problems, with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

"People are talking about how we aren't serious because we're children, but. we're serious".

"If they won't act", the ad read, "it's up to us to elect leaders who will".

Florida's system could be worse: in 2014 neighboring Georgia passed a "guns-everywhere" law that required bars and churches to specifically opt-out of a general rule allowing firearms on the premises. The session may also address mental health and gun laws.

"A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally. There are a lot of interested students".

"The only way we stop this, the only way we save our country and our freedom, is to fight this violence of lies with the clenched fist of truth", Loesch said in the ad. The March for Our Lives is planned for March 24 in Washington. "This is about you guys, this is about everybody here making a difference". "With social media it has become easier".

He joined Arsenal in 2015 and has made nearly 100 league appearances for them, but, at 35, his best years are now behind him. The 24-year-old has already netted 22 goals this season, more than anyone else in the league.

"Well, we're protesting the guns because, it's just ridiculous".

The vote, which effectively kills the bill for the legislative session ending on March 9, comes amid a major push for gun control reform in the wake of the shooting. "It is still going to happen".

Experts see the massive youth uprising as a shift from the gun debates that typically follow a mass shooting.

Nearly all 71 lawmakers who voted against considering the measure have an "A" rating from the National Rifle Association.

Meanwhile, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried Tuesday to smooth over the fallout from Trump's controversial tweet Saturday about the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in which he said agents missed signs about the Parkland shooter because it was busy trying to look for election interference collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation. John Cornyn, R-Texas, about amending the legislation, according to the statement.

Sanders said a "deranged individual" was the cause of the killings.

There is a Senate version of the bill, the newspaper reports, though it "also has not been heard in committees".

The protesters were upset Wednesday that the Republican-controlled chamber refused to take up a measure a day earlier that would have banned assault rifles and large capacity magazines. "Absent any reference to this bill, the bill will be considered dead", McGhee replied.

For those who can't make it to D.C. they are encouraging organizers to lead local rallies and protests around the US on the same day. Linda Stewart, D-Orlando, said of Baxley's proposal.
