Alongside the march on March 24, the organizers of the Women's March are also planning a school walkout, suggesting that students, teachers, and anyone affected by gun violence, walks out of their schools on March 14.

The students who were witness the tragecy have vowed to become the face of a movement for tighter firearm regulations and plan to visit the state capitol in Tallahassee this week to demand immediate action.

Pressure is growing for tougher gun-control laws after a mass shooting at a Florida high school, with thousands of angry protesters at state rallies demanding immediate action from lawmakers, and more demonstrations planned across the country in the weeks ahead.

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation admitted it had failed to investigate Cruz, even after someone close to him called the agency's tip line in January to warn them "about Cruz's gun ownership, desire to kill people, erratic behavior, and disturbing social media posts, as well as the potential of him conducting a school shooting".

Like many other speakers, Tarr's classmate, Emma Gonzalez, blasted politicians who received donations from the National Rifle Association.

"This isn't about the GOP". "The school shootings just keep happening and happening".

"I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing our processes for responding to information that we receive from the public", he said.

According to the New York Daily News, Donald Trump hit the links at his Florida golf course on the same day that one of the Parkland High School shooting victims was buried.

The FBI's acknowledgment that it mishandled the tip prompted a sharp rebuke from its boss, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and a call from Florida's Republican Gov. Rick Scott, a Trump ally, for FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign.

"Him coming here is absolutely absurd, and he's a hypocrite", Mark Bogen told CNN in an interview following Mr Trump's tweet.

"It's Valentine's Day and I don't go to school on Valentine's Day", he reportedly said.

Judge Elizabeth Scherer granted the motion, which she said allowed Cruz's lawyers to have access to him while the suspect is in custody. "LOL, you're funny" Now that's a problem in society and its a bigger problem in America and it needs to be fixed and I think the most definite way to fix it is by changing our laws when it comes to gun ownership", she said in the video. The president says of the responders, "Give them a raise".

"Politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns".
