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


Abbott invited representatives from the Texas State Rifle Association, which says it protects the lawful use of firearms, and Texas Gun Sense, which says it wants reforms to protect the public, to join him in state capital Austin, according to various media outlets.

Police arrested Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, at the Santa Fe school following the rampage they said he committed with a shotgun and a.38-caliber pistol. The only thing that made Santa Fe different was the hypocrisy of major Texas politicians - the ones who have never wavered in their push for more guns on college campuses, showy open-carry laws and laws that have made it easier for the mentally ill to buy guns. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., had drills too.

One of the state's most prominent Republican leaders, Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, said he wanted to limit entrances to schools and stagger class starting times to allow for searches. Eight students and two teachers were killed and more than a dozen wounded.

Texas has more than 1.2 million licensed handgun owners who can openly carry their weapons in public. So much for MA gun control.

Survivor describes 'powerful and hot' impact of lava bomb
He said doctors had to pick sharp, hardened fragments of lava out of the wound, but the prognosis is good for his friend. Goddess of fire, Pele, is believed to live on Kilauea volcano, and the plant itself is thought to desecrate her name.

"It would be everything from school design to metal detectors to background checks and making sure people lock up their guns away from their ammo".

In a statement, the family of the shooting suspect said they were "saddened and dismayed" by the deadly attack and "as shocked as anyone else".

In fact, at a church service Sunday, Santa Fe High student Monica Bracknell, who survived the shooting, told the governor the attack should not be turned into a battle over gun control. But Abbott insisted the roundtables were not political window dressing.

"It's something that we're looking into", Poehl said.

Kelly accused of keeping 19-year-old in sexual slavery
Despite the abuse, Rodgers claims that she and Kelly dated for about a year, in which time he mentally and physically abused her. Kelly has been sued for sexual battery, false imprisonment, and for not informing a sexual partner of an STD, TMZ reports .

"I believe Gov. Abbott, he's going to take us forward", Reynolds-Perez said. The Galveston County sheriff has said more than 200 officers responded to the emergency calls and the first "engaged" the shooter within four minutes.

As well as killing 10, the shooting spree also injured 10 more, including John Barnes, 49, a retired Houston police officer now working as the Santa Fe resource officer who was first to confront the shooter.

Almost 200 Texas school districts allow staff to carry guns. The problem is innocent people are being shot.

After the 2012 assault on Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, Texas allowed teachers or school employees to carry handguns on campus if they met certain training requirements. The governor's office said he would hold roundtable discussions from Tuesday to focus on the best options. There is pressure on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to call a special session of the legislature to address school safety in the wake of the shooting.

Toxic acid cloud over Hawaii after lava hits ocean
Laze itself is not enough to cause serious burns, Babb said, unless someone is right on top of where lava enters the ocean. Since that discovery, agency volcanologists suggested that once the old lava was pushed out, a fresher batch could follow.
