Texas Holds Moment of Silence for School Shooting Victims

Texas Holds Moment of Silence for School Shooting Victims

"She made me laugh and stuff, she was very helpful". "It's not supposed to happen here". "I don't know if they know us the way they should". "It's like a slap in the face". "Her two best friends were killed".

"The problem that we've got is, we are trying like the dickens to treat the symptom without treating the disease".

Gov Abbott's first roundtable to discuss school safety will be held Tuesday at the Texas Capitol.

Pagourtzis, who has been charged with capital murder, was allegedly armed with a shotgun and a.38-caliber revolver, both of which appear to be legally owned by his father.

"It's been really different, knowing that she's gone", Dunford said. "This is not a gun law issue". But after a gunman killed 20 elementary school children and six adults at a school in CT in 2012, Texas lawmakers expanded gun rights in the state.

Todd Penick, a graduating senior who is planning to attend Texas State University, said last year's baccalaureate was attended by around 25 people.

People from across the state - parents, teachers, students, legislators, and interest groups that advocate for and against further gun regulations - will be included in the roundtables.

Incoming National Rifle Association (NRA) President Oliver North reiterated Patrick's concerns about the desensitization of American children and teenagers during an interview on "Fox News Sunday". "I can also express my deepest appreciation for the outpouring of love and support we have been receiving for our students, staff and community".

It was the most terrifying event of Heidi McMillen's life.

The district is also getting ready for summer school.

"We need to do more than just pray for the victims and their families", Abbott said.

She reflected on her word choice: when, not if, another gunman will terrorize another school. "It's not OK that we have to assume it will happen again".

"One of the keys to a safe environment is that culture of awareness, of people feeling open that they can speak up if they see any (thing) suspicious", she said.

"It's been rough on her", he said. "She should be getting her first vehicle, not a funeral".

"They think we're leftist nutcases coming for everyone's guns", she said.

"Be sure that your kids and grandkids or anyone who might have access to your home can not get your guns", Patrick said on "State of the Union". But the political divisions have cast the conversation as an all-or-nothing battle of extremes, leaving many to believe that lawmakers have only two options: either do nothing or snatch up everyone's guns. "But that's where we'll find a solution".
