Florida's GOP Governor on Gun Laws: 'Everything's on the Table'

Students from high school targeted in mass shooting criticize GOP reaction

"Out of respect for them he didn't bring media into their hospital rooms but don't let the truth get in the way of your anti-Trump narrative".

Trump told reporters he spoke to the victims of the incident in the hospital.

One of the most powerful voices to come out during the aftermath of Florida's school shooting is Lori Alhadeff, whose 14-year-old daughter Alyssa was among the 17 victims killed in the attack. "Incredible job and everybody is talking about it".

Wednesday's massacre, which claimed 17 lives at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, has fueled urgent calls for an end to the national deadlock over gun control - with a string of shooting survivors rallying behind the cause.

But their number isn't indicative of how school shootings are typically defined.

Trump's visit to the Parkland area - not far from his Mar-a-Lago resort, where he will spend the long President's Day weekend - was not announced in advance, perhaps because he risked being greeted with angry demands for action on gun laws.

White House sources tell ABC News that it remains unclear what exactly the president wants to ultimately do, but he does want to know what options are available to the administration.

Empty condolences for victims by lawmakers needs to be replaced by action and legislation, she reportedly said.

Donald Trump likes to tout how many laws he's signed - even if some are no more significant than naming a post office or appointing a member of an advisory board.

"This kid deserves the death penalty", she said.

The NRA spent $30 million in support of efforts to elect Trump, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Wearing a white dress reminiscent of the one made famous by Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch, the first lady looked steely in the camera's glare amid fresh press reports that the president had multiple affairs with strippers and porn stars during their marriage.

"You can count on it", Trump replied. "We must actually make that difference".

"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.

At the Capitol, the usual divisions over gun laws were evident.

"We have to make sure that people that are terrorists or have even an inclination toward terrorism can not buy weapons, guns", Trump told ABC News past year.

Kurth is a pro-gun voter who picked Donald Trump in the 2016 election, but she said: "Please stop making it a mental illness issue and acknowledge the fact that it is both a gun and mental illness issue".

Asked if his position is that those on the no-fly or terror watch list should not be able to purchase a gun, Trump responded, "I'd like to see that, and I'd like to say it".

After the Texas church shooting, the president said, "This isn't a guns situation".
