Wichita students will walk out of class, despite punishment

Kashuv survived the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 students and staff.

The bill raises the minimum age to purchase all firearms from 18 to 21 - a move opposed by the powerful National Rifle Association lobby group - bans modification devices that make a semi-automatic weapon fully automatic, and increases mental health funding.

The Florida bill is also controversial because it allows school staff to be specially trained to carry guns as campus "guardians".

Teachers in school districts in some states, including Texas, can carry concealed weapons if they have required training.

The bill also imposes a three day wait on all gun purchases, not just handguns.

Florida lawmakers bucked the National Rifle Association on Wednesday to pass new firearms regulations and create a program for arming some school employees in a rare act of Republican compromise on the divisive issue of gun violence.

Republicans in the Senate and House repeatedly turned aside Democratic bids to add those provisions to the bill.

"I just don't think shutting schools down over a protest is a good idea in general", said Brunson.

The legislation increases to age 21 the age for buying a gun and requires a three-day waiting period for all gun purchases, a provision which now only applies to handgun buys.

Scott has said he is against arming teachers but legislators approved the program anyway.

"While we would prefer that students find a different way to express their views rather than missing school, we are not going to prohibit this demonstration", the email said.

The new measures come in the wake of the February 14 shooting rampage at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

When emergency calls began pouring in from parents and students during the Florida high school massacre, 911 operators at first tried to grasp the enormity of the emergency and then sought to calm the callers while gathering information to assist arriving law enforcement officers. If he's honest, he'll use his line-item veto authority to eliminate the $67 million for the program in the state budget, which the Legislature is expected to pass Sunday. What the news media is not reporting is the political agreement between the Broward County School Board and Broward County law enforcement to stop arresting students for crimes. She said she wants Gov. Rick Scott to veto the money for the so-called guardian program when he receives the budget.

It will now be sent to Governor Rick Scott to sign.

No date was set for an arraignment, at which Cruz will be allowed to enter a plea, said Constance Simmons, a spokeswoman for the Broward County state attorney's office.

"Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School has been shot up", the young man said in between heavy breaths.

Cruz has been charged 17 counts of first-degree murder, which could mean a death sentence if he is convicted. He said he ultimately chose to block out the outside lobbying and make the decision alone.
