Hundreds at vigil mourn Florida school shooting victims

Hundreds at vigil mourn Florida school shooting victims

The presidential proclamation says: "Our Nation grieves with those who have lost loved ones in the shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida". 'But we are not powerless'.

Many of them have specifically directed criticism toward Trump and the Republican Party's politics surrounding gun control.

"If the president wants to come up to me and tell me to my face that it was a bad tragedy and... 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", said Ms Gonzalez.

As he is known to do, President Trump tweeted about the FBI's missed opportunity to stop the shooter before he could act.

'Caring for our kids is our first job.

'Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. "Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!" he tweeted.

While the latest atrocity has reignited questions about United States gun laws, Trump - the first president to have addressed the powerful National Rifle Association gun lobby - staunchly opposes additional controls.

In an intensely emotional interview with CNN, Lori Alhadeff yelled at the camera and begged Trump to take action.

"I think it's disgusting, personally".

An orphaned 19-year-old with a troubled past and his own AR-15 rifle was charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder Thursday morning following the deadliest school shooting in the U.S.in five years.

While Friday's indictment said Russians were in contact with "unwitting members, volunteers, and supporters of the Trump campaign" it did not accuse the campaign of knowingly coordinating with them.

To double down on his defense, Trump is now targeting the Federal Bureau of Investigation for not preventing the mass shooting at school in south Florida last week.

The debate over gun control in America has been polarizing and politicized.

'And by the way, it happens on the streets of Chicago every day, ' Obama said of his adopted hometown.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, said in a statement that it is time for action.

The FBI failed to follow proper protocols after a person close to Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz called the FBI tipline to warn that Cruz had a "desire to kill people" and could carry out a school shooting, the agency said in a statement on Friday. "'See something, say something" is an incredibly important tool and people must have confidence in the follow through from law enforcement.
