More Than 1500 Attend Funeral for School Shooting Victim Alaina Petty, 14

More Than 1500 Attend Funeral for School Shooting Victim Alaina Petty, 14”

On Sunday, the injured teenager remained in a hospital bed with his face swollen and his body tethered to IV and oxygen tubes.

Organizers behind the anti-Trump Women's March called for a 17-minute nationwide walkout by teachers and students on March 14, and a gun-control group was calling for a rally to ban assault weapons Wednesday at the Florida Capitol.

A former student accused of last week's deadly shooting at a Florida high school returned to court for a hearing on Monday in a case that has galvanized advocates of stricter gun control, including numerous rampage survivors.

Many are demanding action from their state lawmakers and Washington.

While the student activists repeatedly expressed optimism and hope for constructive conversations and changes to US gun laws, the politicians who appeared on Sunday's shows expressed great skepticism that anything would change soon.

Another student, Emma Gonzalez, spoke at a rally in Fort Lauderdale over the weekend - issuing a warning to USA politicians who are supported by the National Rifle Association.

He added: "The reason we are starting March For Our Lives and doing this on March 24 is we have been hearing a lot that this is not the time to talk about gun control. Your lack of sympathy proves how pitiful of a person you are". "He was going to school, he had a job, he told us two weeks ago it's the happiest he's ever been", said James Snead.

Just days after surviving the 9th deadliest shooting in modern USA history, several students have given powerful speeches and compelling TV interviews, voicing their desire to break the continuous loop of massacres. Now They're Calling for Action. Their mission statement emphasizes the need to make the lives of students and teachers the nation's "top priority" and calls on students across the country to join their cause. "There's barely any time for them to save their skins, and if they don't turn around right now and state their open support for this movement, they're going to be left behind because you're either with us or you're against us at this point". About a hundred people, students and chaperones are to arrive Wednesday.

"We feel like the politicians on both sides but mostly the GOP who are accepting money from the NRA are betting on our lives and they're betting against us", said Stoneman Douglas High junior Cameron Casky. It is not clear when students will return. "Because our elected officials certainly won't", said Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg.

As the South Florida community grapples with the aftermath, a 15-year-old teenager was arrested Friday for posting a threat on Instagram to kill people at several Broward County schools.

The Lauderhill, Florida, teenager appeared to be remorseful and claimed his post was a joke to scare his cousin, according to the Broward Sheriff's office. In some of these events, the schools have closed or gone into lockdown.

A school counselor told the investigator that Lynda Cruz had always tried to help her son and followed through on his therapy and medication, but the counselor was concerned about the youth's desire to buy a gun.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation admitted it had failed to investigate Cruz, even after someone close to him called the agency's tip line in January to warn them "about Cruz's gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting". Cruz's lawyers said there were many warning signs that he was mentally unstable and potentially violent.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz is facing 17 counts of murder in the Wednesday afternoon shooting. He is being held without bond in Broward County. His lawyers have said he will plead guilty if prosecutors agree not to pursue the death penalty.
