Jimmy Kimmel attacks Donald Trump over response to 'senseless' Florida shooting

School shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez delivers a fiery speech at a rally for gun control in Fort Lauderdale Florida

Both sides of the dispute were on display on Saturday.

The president and first lady also visited the first responders and law enforcement at the Broward County Sheriff's office who responded to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. "So I agree, this is a mental illness issue because if you don't think we need to do something about it, you are obviously mentally ill". The President on Thursday offered no indication he is willing to revisit the nation's gun laws, instead emphasizing the mental health aspect of mass shootings. We call BS. They say a good guy with a gun stops a bad guy with a gun.

There is one tweet I would like to call attention to.

Earlier, students who survived the shooting rallied in Florida, demanding tighter legislation on gun control and criticising the president for receiving financial support from the National Rifle Association during his presidential campaign.

Representatives for the White House and the NRA did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

"We've had too many national tragedies across our country, and it's time for this to stop", declared Stacey Kagan, Parkland's vice mayor.

While "children are being murdered" the president has "done worse than nothing", he said, adding that "one of your very first acts as president was to roll back the regulations that were created to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill".

On this point, MRCTV's Nick Kangadis nailed it when he wrote: "There are tons of teenagers in the military fighting for Kimmel's right to projectile vomit his sermon, but I don't ever see Kimmel crying for them".

The FBI said a person close to Cruz called the FBI's tip line and provided information about Cruz's weapons and his erratic behavior. "I didn't know how easy it is to get a gun in Florida", said Caesar Figueroa, 43, who had two children at the school during the shooting.

Adolfo David Ginarte, 30, a hotel conference service manager, was checking out some of the more than 140 vendors at the gun show.

"Facts don't care about your feelings", he said. "No one should be afraid to go to school, and we all want to live in a safe community, and I believe this community is going to unite to make that happen". Life is going to go forward.
