Houston Astros Honor Sante Fe Shooting Victims

J.J. Watt visited with survivors of the Santa Fe High School shooting at Clear Lake Regional Medical Center

A recent CNN story reported that 170 Texas school districts (out of about 1,000) already allow teachers and administrators to carry concealed weapons on school grounds.

It is time for voters to solve this problem by electing representatives who are not afraid of the National Rifle Association and are willing to act boldly in defending Americans in our own country.

As Santa Fe High School students try to understand why the lives of their friends and classmates ended so tragically, Williams is hard at work, to honor those lives lost with the help of local military veterans. Abbott said the discussions will include lawmakers, educators, students, parents, gun-rights advocates and shooting survivors. Tuesday's inaugural session focused on school districts arming teachers and better tracking student mental health.

"I don't put a "died-on" date because it's more about, when I do meet the families and stuff, it's more about this", said Williams.

The teachers will not be convening at the high school today, CNN has learned. So much for MA gun control. "It is unchallenged at the state level", Jillson said.

- Santa Fe is Jack Williams' home.

None of those scenarios would have snagged the suspect in Santa Fe.

Texas has a child-access-prevention law that holds gun owners responsible if a child gains access to a readily dischargeable firearm that was not adequately secured. "But if our teachers had guns that could change a lot".

Sentiments like those could give Abbott political cover if his roundtable discussions don't lead to major changes. A 17-year-old student is being held on capital murder charges.

Teenager Dimitrios Pagourtzis has been accused of killing eight students and two teachers during a rampage at Santa Fe High School on Friday - the fourth deadly school shooting in the United States this year. Gun control groups point to the regular toll of shootings across the United States as evidence that more needs to be done to rein in the proliferation of weapons.

Galveston County Sheriff Henry Trochesset said Monday police were able to "engage" the shooter four minutes after they were called. That allowed the rest of the school to be evacuated safely. Trochesset said 200 officers from law enforcement agencies throughout the region converged Friday afternoon on the shooting scene. So will Texas Gun Sense, which promotes common-sense reforms to prevent violence.

In 2015, Abbott tweeted he was "embarrassed" that Texas lagged behind California in gun sales. After the discussions, reporters came back in and Abbott talked about what happened. A photograph of the governor aiming a shotgun was removed.

However unfortunately, the United States government, including President Donald Trump, has failed to recognise people's easy access to guns as a major problem. Abbott so far has committed to even less. Her group will stress tougher background checks, suicide prevention, gun safety at home and so-called "red flag" laws that restrict gun access for people identified as potentially risky to themselves or others. But gun violence is considerably high in the U.S. only. "We are glad the governor invited us", Switzer said.

And it's not just Republicans.

You can't. That is why I have never seen an answer. I've worn a gun over 40 years.

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' touches down in Cannes
The Star Wars Saga was meant to be a series of nine films chronicling the rebel alliance as they try to defeat the Empire . I keep harping about "fun" but that's what Solo has that Rogue One and even most of The Last Jedi were lacking.
