Florida governor proposes tighter gun restrictions in wake of school shooting

Fuentes was in the school at the time of the shooting.

Governor Scott is also looking into completely banning the purchase or sale of bump stocks.

The NRA, which has been the target of Israel's wrath for refusing to support a ban on assault weapons, also went after Israel.

Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran and 73 other state lawmakers have asked Gov. Rick Scott to suspend a sheriff for incompetence and neglect of duty in the aftermath of this month's high school massacre.

"I disagree with arming the teachers. So it comes on a different level for me", Heinrich said.

"My message to them has been very simple, you are not alone".

"Can we actually look at what really could have prevented this?"

"I can't believe it". Peterson has been suspended without pay pending his firing, Israel said.

Israel said a deputy who responded to a November 30 call referring to Cruz as a "school shooter in the making" was being investigated by internal affairs for not filing a report.

He said: "When it came time to get in there and do something, he didn't have the courage or something happened".

The 19-year-old had amassed multiple guns following his mother's death in November, and had posted on social media that "he wants to kill people", the caller said, describing a history of disruptive and violent behavior.

Suspected Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz had allegedly spoken about his desire to inflict violence - behaviour that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was made aware of but did not investigate - and multiple government agencies were aware of a video in which he cut himself and talked about owning a gun. "He's thrown out of all these schools because he would pick up a chair and just throw it at somebody, a teacher or a student, because he didn't like the way they were talking to him". It made me feel like if I go to school, I could die. "I called the sheriff's department".

The earliest call dates from November 2008 when Cruz, then nine years old, threw a rock at another boy who had thrown a rock at him.

Two of the most disturbing calls - in February 2016 and November 2017 - were tips that Cruz was armed and may be planning to attack a school. Mr Scott said they would be sheriff's deputies or police officers, downplaying a proposal - embraced by Donald Trump - to arm teachers.
