Federal Bureau of Investigation admits it failed to act on tip on Florida school shooter

On March 24, March For Our Lives is taking place, and will see survivors of the Parkland mass shooting and their allies taking to Washington DC to demand an end to gun violence and needless deaths. That would put them on a potential collision course with President Donald Trump.

They plan a nationwide "March for our Lives" and say they feel "neglected" by adults, criticising politicians on both sides of the aisle who have taken donations from the National Rifle Association (NRA).

A weeping 19-year-old Tyra Hemans held posters Thursday of her dead friends, along with one that said "ENOUGH NO GUNS #GunReformNow". Scheduled for March 14, the organization is calling for teachers, students, school administrators and parents to participate.

"How dare you", he added.

It is one of many student-led protests amassing support on social media in the wake of Wednesday's attack.

About 300 school shootings have taken place across the USA since 2013, gun control advocacy group Newtown estimates.

The second-deadliest shooting at a public school in US history also raised concerns about potential failures in school security and stirred the ongoing US debate about gun rights, which are protected by the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. He is expected to announce a legislative package with GOP lawmakers this week.

"If we've got to take some extra days off, that's fine to continue the movement", he said. "No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country", the march's website said.

Officials at the South Florida high school where former student Nikolas Cruz allegedly gunned down 17 people recommended over a year ago conducting a "threat assessment" on him, according to a report. They want other protests to happen simultaneously in other cities on the same day. "We want to be the voice for those kids and thousands of others". James Ciaramello, a freshman in the school's JROTC program, was heartbroken by the massacre but skeptical that firearms regulations could have prevented it.

He also said that Cruz had been obedient during his stay. "There's always a way around it".

The records show DCF Adult Protective Services was called on September 18, 2016 to investigate allegations that Cruz was being victimized by his mother.

The Parkland school has remained closed since February 14, when a lone gunman entered the Freshman Building and opened fire. Stoneman Douglas will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday as well.
