Deadly Texas school shooting gunman 'confused,' his lawyers say

School shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas

School shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas

J.J. Watt, a star defensive end for the Houston Texans, visited injured victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting on Monday, Click2Houston reported.

Another school banned backpacks to prevent hidden weapons from slipping through, while others changed dress codes to forbid heavy clothing such as the trench coat Pagourtzis was said to be wearing to hide his weapons.

The killing of eight students and two teachers last week at Santa Fe High School prompted the governor to call a series of roundtable discussions on school safety, starting Tuesday in Austin.

She says her classroom was just as she left it Friday when Aguilera, on crutches from an earlier injury, was helped from the room by a friend and a teacher.

The shooting at Santa Fe High School occurred about three months after 17 teenagers and staff were shot dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, stoking the national debate over gun control.

Eight students and two teachers were killed when a 17-year-old student opened fire at Santa Fe High School last week in the latest mass shooting at a US school.

But few expect the meetings to result in any major push for new gun restrictions, especially in a state where more than 1.2 million people are licensed to carry handguns and are allowed to openly carry them in public if they wish.

IPL 2018, CSK vs SRH: Faf du Plessis showed why experience counts
Should Bhuvneshwar Kumar have bowled the 19th over? But Shardul came in and hit some boundaries, and everything went our way. With Kumar and Kaul bowling in tandem, du Plessis was once again just an onlooker as Dhoni tried to fend away their overs.

The Republican-controlled legislature is out of session until January 2019, making it almost impossible for the state to implement and fund any major changes that come out of this week's three roundtable discussions. "They see the person as the problem and security as the second problem".

"You can't put somebody that is not proficient in that firearm in a position to where they'll have to use deadly force", he said.

The Republican has been a staunch supporter of gun rights and worked to expand them in the state in recent years. In 2017, he bragged about his accuracy with a pistol at a shooting range. After the discussions, reporters came back in and Abbott talked about what happened. A photograph of the governor aiming a shotgun was removed. Abbott so far has committed to even less. The Wednesday discussion, for example, will include legislative leaders and the lieutenant governor, judges, the commissioner of the Texas Education Agency, mental health experts, the director of the Texas School Safety Center at Texas State University and members of groups advocating for and against increased gun regulation.

Democrats have largely welcomed a discussion on gun violence but criticized the effectiveness of any changes now proposed by Republican leadership.

Others questioned why the point about America's gun crime was made by comparing it to a wedding, while others pointed out the United Kingdom was also grappling with a serious spike in murder and violent crimes.

While royal wedding euphoria took over the United Kingdom this weekend, the mood could not have been more different in the US. "It means I'm against stupidity".
