You can do a lot! When he visited Las Vegas to mourn with the families of those victims, Trump called the shooter "demented" and a "very sick individual", though he added that "we'll be talking about gun laws as time goes by".

Alhadeff then took the mic and spoke directly into the camera.

Trump tweeted out his prayers and condolences to those who suffered loss on Wednesday.

Commemorative ceremony for Florida school shooting victims

"You like to say this is a mental health issue, but one of your very first acts as president, Mr Trump, was to actually roll back the regulations that were created to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill".

Like past mass shootings, the massacre in Florida swiftly reignited a national debate about access to assault weapons and possible changes to gun control laws.

Florida Today ran with the headline: "Details on "troubled" suspect emerge" followed by "alleged shooter left scene by blending with fleeing students". But what's more important is actual action... that results in saving thousands of children's lives.

Cruz was armed with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and multiple ammunition magazines, police said. President Trump, please do something.

The president addressed the nation hours after the shooting, calling out the need to tackle mental illness, while mentioning nothing about gun control or reform.

It can not be denied that something unsafe and unhealthy is happening in our country.

Borward County Sheriff Scott Israel said that an armed resource deputy was at the school's campus, but that deputy never encountered Cruz.
