Mast also said he supports providing “behavior detection training” to anyone seeking a federal firearms license, making more resources available to schools to improve security measures, holding the “FBI and state agencies accountable for their failures to identify a threat like Nikolas Cruz” and “conducting further research into the nexus of gun violence, violence in mass media and mental illness.”
Mast’s op-ed came at the end of a week-long national conversation on gun violence and gun rights that included a listening session with President Donald Trump and a CNN town hall with survivors of the tragedy in Parkland, which left 17 dead. Brian Mast, who himself carries a concealed pistol, said in the op-ed that he supports “defining what constitutes an assault or tactical firearm and not allowing them for future purchase.”
An Army veteran, Mast said the rifle he used during combat in Afghanistan is “very similar to the AR-15-style semiautomatic weapon used to kill students, teachers and a coach I knew at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Parkland, Fla., where I once lived.”
His combat weapon, he said, was “the best for killing our enemies.” And for that reason, he said, “I cannot support the primary weapon I used to defend our people being used to kill children I swore to defend.”

On the way into the terminal Judson ran into the troopers — Robert Troy and Thomas Karasinski — who noticed she looked upset. Pollack, 18, was the sister of Judson’s brother’s best friend, and Pollack’s dad has been a father figure to Judson’s family. “It was just a selfless, great act of humanity that they didn’t have to do,” she said. After she heard the news, all Judson wanted to do was go home to South Florida and be with her family. “Everyone (in the community) knows somebody involved somehow,” she said. “And I look up and they were handing over their credit cards.”

Planned March on D.C. Her family friend Meadow Pollack was among them. The vigil in Parkland started at 6. Asked Tuesday about his efforts on her behalf, Karasinski said that as a state trooper he’s never paid so much out of his own pocket to help someone. She wasn’t sure she or her family could afford it. They just figured it was the right thing to do. “It’s already done,” one of them said. It wasn’t. She also is a 2012 graduate of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where 17 students and faculty were killed last Wednesday. “I just got out of the car and I started crying because I realized this (flight) was the only thing separating me from New York and Florida,” she said. But she might never have made it if it wasn’t for two generous New York state troopers. Judson went to the ticket counter and called her mother in tears, trying to find a way to make the flight work. And then Troy and Karasinski showed up again. There was no discussion between him and Troy beforehand, he said. “Meadow’s dad helped raise my brother.”
Judson didn’t find out until last Thursday, the day after the shooting, that Pollack was killed. Judson told the officers they didn’t have to do it. Jordana Judson lives in New York. She didn’t even pack a bag. Jordana Judson, 23, graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, where 17 students and faculty were killed. But when she heard about the Florida school shooting last week, it hit close to home. “I’m on the phone with my mom,” she said. They offered to help. ‘I just got out of the car and I started crying’
Judson, who works in public relations, began searching for flights online, hoping it would be a quick and affordable process. In a phone interview with CNN, Judson said she has volunteered for several community organizations in Parkland, worked with special needs children and taught dance classes for kids who could not afford a studio. But in the time it took her to get to the airport, the only remaining seat on the flight she was looking at had sold. Still, Judson said she was floored by their generosity and compassion. She immediately knew she had to get home in time for the funeral, and for a candlelight vigil Thursday night. The two officers decided on the spot to split the cost of Judson’s flight and help her get home to her family. Thinking that dealing with the issue in person would be easier, she drove to LaGuardia Airport. “I can guarantee that any other law enforcement agency would do the same thing if they were in my shoes,” Karasinski said. in West Palm Beach.

Florida School Shooting Survivors Deliver Message to Lawmakers: Enough Is Enough

Less than a week after the shooting, the Florida state House voted down a motion to consider a bill that would ban assault rifles, essentially killing the measure for this year. “I still totally believe that but I think that there should be a limit to who could acquire such weaponry.”
He said some people should not have access to guns. the police, we should be able defend ourselves as citizens,” he said. 21, 2018. “It was just so heartbreaking to see how many (voters’) names were up there, especially after it was my school,” said Sheryl Acquaroli, 16, a junior at Stoneman Douglas. “We have such a limited government that should not be totally reliant on … It’s the individual themself (that becomes) the issue, not the weapon that they’re holding.”
As the Florida students rally for change, their community will say goodbye Wednesday to two of the 17 victims killed last week. Hundreds of the students trekked to Stoneman Douglas High about 10 miles away. ‘That’s unacceptable’
Their calls for change suffered a major setback Tuesday. That doesn’t make it a dangerous neighborhood or them dangerous individuals. “I have individuals in my neighborhood that own an AR-15. The 36-71 vote in the Republican-dominated body left some students in tears. “It shows that they don’t care about us.”

In the days following the massacre at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland a week ago, students have turned into activists, protesting and making social media appeals to state officials to demand gun reform. Rick Scott held a roundtable on school safety Tuesday, and planned to have a proposal by Friday. “It seemed almost heartless how they immediately pushed the button to say no.”
Stoneman Douglas students in the gallery during the vote were stunned. “If you’re not of the right mindset, you’re not mentally stable, then you should not be able to acquire that,” he said. “They can change the world, and we can only go with them,” said Darren Levin, a teacher at the school. Florida students march on the state Capitol on Feb. President Donald Trump is expected to hold a listening session with students and teachers, but the impact of those conversations remains unclear. The debate on gun control is not limited to Florida. We’re fighting for the future kids that we’re going to have, and that’s why we’re marching and that’s why we’re here talking to our senators and our representatives,” said Sofie Whitney, one of dozens of Stoneman Douglas students who traveled 450 miles away to Tallahassee.

Fueled by grief and anger over the killing of 17 people at their Florida high school, the students have a message for lawmakers: Enough is enough. A visitation is planned for Aaron Feis, an assistant football coach killed when he threw himself in front of students to protect them from oncoming bullets. “If you’re not with us, you’re against us,” he said. James Lankford, a Republican from Oklahoma, said guns weren’t the problem as much as who is able to get a gun. Lauren Book, a Democrat from Florida. “That’s unacceptable,” student Spencer Blum said of the vote. Chris Grady, 19, a senior at the high school, said the message to lawmakers is simple. He said he has always been pro-guns, but looks at things differently since the shooting. “I am bringing local and state leaders together to find solutions on how to prevent violence in our schools and keep guns out of the hands of mentally ill individuals,” he said. “And you’re against saving the lives of innocent children and we are going to be voting you out.”
The students will hold various rallies in Tallahassee and hold a news conference with Sen. “We’re fighting for the friends we lost. Under the rallying cry of #NeverAgain, dozens of students and staff who survived the shooting will gather again Wednesday in front of the state Capitol in Tallahassee to continue their appeal for stricter gun laws.

Trump Challenges Sessions to Investigate Obama, Democrats on Russia’s Election Meddling

“He will never get over Sessions recusing himself,” a person familiar with the President’s thinking said. Last month, the Trump administration decided against implementing the sanctions against Russia and instead published a list of already prominent Russian oligarchs. Trump and Putin discussed election interference in Hamburg, Germany, in July 2017. The Justice Department is tasked with investigating crimes committed in the United States, making Trump’s tweet a suggestion that the former Obama administration committed a crime by not stopping Russia. One person said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s televised announcement Friday of indictments against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for allegedly meddling in the 2016 presidential election reignited Trump’s anger at Sessions. While Trump and even some Democrats have criticized the Obama administration for not speaking up enough on Russia’s actions before the election, Obama did take some steps to reprimand the country. to Propose Regulations Banning Bump Stocks
Trump Slams FBI’s Handling of Florida School Shooter, Says Officials Were ‘Spending Too Much Time’ on Russia Probe
President Trump Takes Aim at Rep. “Why didn’t Obama do something about the meddling? Trump has yet to impose sanctions overwhelmingly passed by Congress last year and missed deadlines to identify which Russian individuals and entities would be on the sanctions list. President Donald Trump, after being criticized for his response to Russia’s election meddling, challenged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to launch an investigation into the Obama administration for failing to do enough to stop the 2016 election foreign interference. U.S. Sanders suggested on Tuesday that more action to confront Russia was soon to be released. During his last two years in office, Obama also imposed sanctions on Russian individuals and entities for election meddling, kicked out 35 Russian diplomats and closed two Kremlin compounds in the United States. Obama confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in China in 2016, something Trump has yet to forcefully do in meetings with the Russian leader. “Question: If all of the Russian meddling took place during the Obama Administration, right up to January 20th, why aren’t they the subject of the investigation?” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. Trump and his top aides, in an attempt to protect the President and the White House from a steady stream of stories about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into election meddling, has started to fault the Obama administration for not doing enough when the former president was in control. He later deleted the original tweet and corrected the spelling error. It was clear to people Trump was speaking with over the weekend and sources with knowledge of his feelings, though, that his disdain for Sessions hasn’t gone away. (Credit: Alex Wong/Getty Images)
The tweet is the latest in a series where Trump faults former President Barack Obama for not doing enough to stop Russian meddling, but the first time Trump has suggested that Sessions — the man he picked to lead the Justice Department but has maintained a grudge against for the better part of a year — wasn’t doing enough. Trump later said he thought the Russian leader was earnest when he denied any election meddling. The two, according to a source, did not interact much while taking photos. Ask Jeff Session!”

Trump has nursed a grudge against Sessions ever since the former Alabama senator decided to recuse himself from all Justice Department investigations into the 2016 campaign, including the ongoing Russia probe. The President also has come to believe Sessions is in over his head at the Justice Department, this person says. “He has been tougher on Russia in the first year than Obama was in eight years combined,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said during Tuesday’s White House briefing. Last year he slammed Sessions on Twitter for taking “a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers” and described his as “beleaguered” in a tweet that asked why he wasn’t “looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?”
Even still, Sessions has remained in the administration despite regularly drawing Trump’s ire.

California Motorists Under 21 Could Lose License if Caught Driving Under the Influence of Marijuana

California motorists under the age of 21 would lose their driver’s license for a year if caught driving with marijuana in their system under new legislation, though the state still is developing methods of measuring the drug in the body and determining a standard for impairment. Orange County sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Puckett checks a motorist’s identification at a DUI checkpoint. “This bill will save lives by making it illegal for drivers under age 21 to drive under the influence of marijuana, just like current law for alcohol,” Hill said in a statement. 36.778261
