Nikolas Cruz, 19, was wearing a maroon shirt with the logo from the Army Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when he was arrested Wednesday shortly after the shooting. It seemed as if the teens had stepped straight from the bullet-scarred school into the nation's gun debate.
"It's illogical that the law says a minor can't have a drink, but can buy a gun", said Mavy Rubiano, the 47-year-old mother of a student who survived the shooting. "And that's what our community and all of us are crying out for: Actions need to take place to stop this from happening".
"Imagine hearing bullets.it's absolutely very bad", Hogg said.

Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican leaders of the Assembly and Senate did not respond to requests for comment about gun laws in light of the Florida shooting. She was also remembered as a creative writer with a memorable smile. It was about guns. "I already know - $30 million".

"When I moved to Canada I did not want to be here at all". He said first responders saved her life by getting her to the hospital quickly. The city said Friday that details were not complete. Action! We need it now!
Thousands of angry students, parents, teachers and neighbors of a Florida high school where 17 people were killed demanded Saturday that immediate action be taken on gun-control legislation, insisting they would not relent until their demands were met. The group said it has received $800,000 in unsolicited donations since Wednesday.
"My friends are dead", one student said. "We don't want to outlaw guns".
Survivors said they have been considering gun-control issues in new ways. Barbour says it's because the gun is so customizable.
Along with schools, the NRA funnels millions of dollars a year into local gun clubs, Boy Scout chapters, churches and agriculture programs.
Gonzalez also gave voice to a question many in the United States have been asking since Wednesday's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School: How did 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, a former student who was known to be mentally ill and exhibit erratic behavior, come to legally purchase an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle?
