Lawyer for alleged Santa Fe gunman investigating bullying reports

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick doesn't agree that guns are the problem, instead citing violent video games and abortions. "It is homes without discipline and communities without values".

A substitute teacher, a Pakistani exchange student and a teen who reportedly spurned the shooter's romantic interests were among those killed, as Pagourtzis allegedly yelled, "Surprise!" and screamed, "Woo hoo!" in what Gov. Greg Abbott called "one of the most heinous attacks that we've ever seen in the history of Texas schools".

"I believe, and the parents of the students I've talked to in Santa Fe since Friday believe, they should be", he said.

"In the midst of such tragedy, we pray for the victims and those mourning in Santa Fe, while we work to ensure swift and meaningful action to protect our students in schools across our state". Thirteen others were wounded in the worst school shooting since 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., two months ago. Three weeks after the bloodbath, Florida politicians defied the NRA and passed a gun control package after a lobbying campaign led by student survivors of the attack. "It is unchallenged at the state level", Jillson said. Students who are bullied or who are bullies themselves will quite naturally think of schools as places appropriate for violence.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sabika was "helping to build ties" between the United States and her native country and offered his condolences to her family and friends.

Taking away all the guns of all the millions of people who have never done anything wrong would be one solution to the current dilemma, albeit an extremely ham-fisted and unpopular one. "But if our teachers had guns that could change a lot". This is something that doesn't have to happen again. Victims, educators, and family members from Santa Fe, Sutherland Springs, Alpine and Italy, TX are also being invited to participate in a roundtable discussion later this week.

A 17-year-old student is being held on murder charges.

He wore a black trench coat to school in the Texas heat on Friday and opened fire with a pistol and shotgun.

The wound, still so fresh in Santa Fe, found a moment of silence, of prayer and ten crosses - one for each victim - now memorializes the community's loss.

Assault weapons make mass shootings very efficient.

17, is under suicide watch at the Galveston County Jail, officials said Monday.

To what extent does the force and coercion employed by many schools contribute to a "might makes right" mentality and associated violence?

Trouchesset said officers exchanged gunfire with the suspected shooter and negotiated with him for a 25-minute-span before he surrendered.

Investigators have identified the original buyers, but how the weapons moved from them to the shooter is still being determined, the official said. Since 2013, Texas has reduced the cost and hours of training needed to be licensed to carry a handgun, allowed "open carry" for handgun license holders, and allowed concealed handguns in college classrooms and dorms. A photograph of the governor aiming a shotgun was removed.

In Santa Fe, some students were more interested in that idea, with 18-year-old Kassidy Monroe saying, "In some cases arming teachers may help". Abbott so far has committed to even less.

"We need to have a national background check system that is uniformed with real teeth and real consequences for those that try to defeat it in trying to get guns and for those that sell guns to the wrong people", Acevedo told NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro. "We are glad the governor invited us", Switzer said.

No official motive has been announced for the massacre, the fourth-deadliest mass shooting at a U.S. school in modern history.

And it's not just Republicans. "It means I'm against stupidity".
