Armed deputy stood outside school building during shootings

"The goal of this plan of action is to make massive changes in protecting our schools, provide significantly more resources for mental health, and do everything we can to keep guns out of the hands of those dealing with mental problems, or threatening harm to themselves or others".

Trump called out the deputy by name - "Deputy Sheriff Peterson, I guess his name is" - and said Peterson had "strained his whole life" by failing to act.

An armed officer assigned to the Florida school where a gunman killed 17 people last week stood outside the building during the shooting and did not go in to engage the shooter, the local sheriff says.

The suite of proposals most notably does not include arming schoolteachers, an idea that President Donald Trump and other Florida Republican lawmakers have proposed in the wake of last week's gun massacre in Parkland. Add Florida School Shooting as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Florida School Shooting news, video, and analysis from ABC News. "But he certainly did a poor job, there's no question about that".

Students are evacuated by police from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., after a shooter opened fire on the campus.

"Deputy Sheriff Peterson, I guess his name is, I mean they brought it out - I was surprised".

"I actually met with one teacher who was a grazed it with a bullet, and you think grazed with a bullet sounds so simple?" Instead, Peterson waited outside for "upwards of four minutes", according to Sheriff Scott Israel and video footage capturing the incident.

Wayne LaPierre said "opportunists" were using the tragedy to expand gun control and abolish USA gun rights.

"It is helpful for them to process through their feelings and sort out 'do I feel safe in my school?" Former Stoneman Douglas student Lucas Macaluso told the Herald he believed Peterson had made a "huge mistake", but that his role in the school had mostly been breaking up lunchroom fights - not confronting active shooters.

Scot Peterson, the Florida sheriff's deputy who has been branded a "coward" by President Trump for his behavior at the Parkland school shooting has resigned and is now under police protection.

"I'm calling on the Governor, the Senate President, and the Speaker of the House to work with me and ensure Deputy Scott Peterson is not rewarded for his negligent inaction and his failure to protect our children".
