Santa Fe hits home for veteran of helping mass shooting victims heal

Texas shooting Two faiths one emotion- grief

The 17-year-old suspect has been jailed on capital murder charges. "It is unchallenged at the state level", Jillson said.

"We have one goal ... making sure we're going to keep to our students, our schools, our communities safer", without limiting the right to bear arms, Abbott said.

"The act of evil that occurred in Santa Fe has deeply touched the core of who we are as Texans", Abbott said in a statement. I left from my village in northern Greece when I was 12. We're a can-do country. I worked hard and became a shipowner.

"It would have been better", he added, "if he shot me than all those kids". "Now ... our lives are shattered". That's due in part to a 2005 case that was heard by the Supreme Court. Antonios Pagourtzis wouldn't comment to the Journal about how his son acquired them.

Sawed-off shotguns are illegal without a permit from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He said it was too early to elaborate.

Investigators have identified the original buyers, but how Dimitrios ultimately obtained the weapons is still under investigation, the official said.

But critics say Texas isn't serious about changing its gun-loving culture.

Watt told "Good Morning America" past year he made a decision to try and find a way to help Houston as he watched his city become inundated with deadly floodwater from his hotel in Dallas. "I'm watching it on TV and seeing all these people help out, seeing people get in boats and help, seeing water rush down streets that I drive down every day".

"I feel the pain of the others, but I have the same pain".

He said that's especially true when talking about parental involvement; one idea was mandating parental training. "Something must have happened now, this last week". When we [Governor Abbott and I and Senator Ted Cruz] asked them, they all said they thought their parents and their teachers should be armed.

Texas political leaders are considering installing airport-style security at public schools and screening students for mental health issues as alternatives to gun control to thwart a repeat of last week's deadly shooting at a Houston-area high school.

"We need to get down to one or two entrances to our schools".

Houston police Officer John Barnes, a resource officer at the school who confronted the gunman, was among the victims hospitalized.

You have the necessary exits for fire of course but we have to follow our students into our schools so we can put eyes on them.

The suspect won't face the death penalty if he is convicted. Among them was Monica Bracknell, an 18-year-old senior who survived the shooting.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott met Wednesday with representatives of a gun-control group and the Texas State Rifle Association for more discussions about school safety after the shooting that killed 10 people near Houston.

"The heroes from that [Independent School District] engaged this individual in approximately four minutes and stayed engaged with him, keeping him contained and engaged", Trochesset said, "so the other heroes - that continued to arrive - could evacuate the teachers administrators in the students from this school".
