Trump backs improved background checks on gun buys: White House

"I thought I had the only key".

President Donald Trump is open to supporting bipartisan efforts to improve the federal background check system to buy weapons, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a Monday statement.

A 19-year-old armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle killed 17 people during Wednesday's rampage, which has reignited calls for changes in permissive United States gun laws.

The driver said he had forgotten to leave the weapon in his auto, the report said.

Protesters participated in what they said would be a three-minute "lie in", which began around 12:30 p.m. on Presidents Day.

Many Republicans and even the powerful conservative lobby of the National Rifle Association have supported some regulatory action on bump stocks.

"My message for the people in office is you're either with us or against us".

Ideally, instead of asking people who could afford a $200,000 initiation fee about gun control, the president would have looked at recent research on the topic.

"The caller provided information about Cruz's gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

The status hearing scheduled for 1 p.m. would mark Cruz's second time facing a judge after he fatally shot 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday.

Florida students are demanding an end to gun violence, calling for a nationwide walkout and march next month.

Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! In the end, Trump did not stray too far from conservative Republican orthodoxy. He also assailed the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to follow up on warnings about the school shooter.

Students have organised a march on Washington on 24 March, and want simultaneous demonstrations to happen nationally.

CNN is holding a town hall meeting on Wednesday with the victims' classmates, parents, community members, and some Florida politicians.

"We knew the one Instagram page that my son followed but we didn't know the other multiple pages he had where he was putting up all of those pictures", said Snead.

"They were not allowed to be out if we were not home".

But hours later, the Sneads heard of shooting reports and called their son who attended the high school - he was already fleeing the scene.

"I knew he had five or six; I didn't know what kind they were".

Speaking on Good Morning America, James and Kimberly Snead said they had only seen Mr Cruz once since the shooting, when they briefly saw him at the police station.

Lopez said that while her friendship with Cruz started out normally, she soon noticed he would often display weapons and post disturbing pictures online.

"We haven't closed the door on any front", Sanders said.

"There were problems with him a year ago threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus", Gard told the newspaper.
