A 19 year old youth Nikolas Cruz has confessed to gunning down 17 people at his former school in Florida. Expelled from school for disciplinary reasons, he became fixated on firearms. A grieving mother who lost her daughter in the shooting cried out to President Trump and pleaded with him to take necessary steps to curb violence in schools and to address the nations deadly gun epidemic.
Mr. Trump responded saying that he is committed to working with the state and local leaders to help secure schools and make them safe for children as a top priority. He also said that a school filled with innocent children and caring teachers should not become a scene of violence, hatred and evil.
