"We're here because my daughter has no voice".

"We are exhausted of waiting for adults to take action", an MSD student said.

"At no time was any Secret Service protectee in danger or impacted", it said in a statement. He wondered how many more children had to be shot. "I expect that these critical regulations will be finalized, Jeff, very soon".

A south Florida community shaken by the most recent school shooting continues to demand for answers, a week after 17 people lost their lives at Stoneman Douglas High School.

"It stops here with this administration and me", he said. "I'm not going to sleep until it gets fixed".

Rallying in solidarity, students staged walkouts from other high schools in Florida and elsewhere vowing to make the tragedy a turning point in America's deadlocked debate on gun control. Supporters of gun reform, many of them survivors of the shooting, have called for increased gun-control measures. "It's still happening. In Australia there was a shooting at a school in 1999".

"We're going to go very strong into age - age of purchase, and we're also going to go very strong into the mental health aspect of what's going on", he said.

"Where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them, they would go for special training and they would be there, and you would no longer have a gun-free zone". The Republican senator's legislation would hold "federal agencies accountable if they fail to upload relevant records to the background check system through public reporting and prohibiting bonus pay for political appointees". "Arming teachers does nothing to prevent that". "We're working very hard".

The National Education Association represents 3 million educators.

Other Parkland students will travel to Tallahassee, Fla., this week to speak to state legislators to push for new legislation. All these school shootings, it doesn't make sense.

Organizers said the event is meant to "protest Congress' inaction to do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to the gun violence plaguing our schools and neighborhoods".

Trump made the announcement at a Medal of Valor ceremony at the White House for firefighters and police officers - some of whom had intervened in shooting incidents.
