JJ Watt visits Texas shooting survivors at hospital

Police cornered Texas school shooter within four minutes

"It's terrible, it's just tough", said Williams when asked about the shooting that took the lives of eight students and two teachers. She said teachers should be armed. When the reporter asks her why, the girl responds, "It's been happening everywhere. I wasn't surprised, I was just scared".

It's just this time, the shooting happened in his hometown.

In the week following the shooting, Divin clarified his stance on the changes he hopes to see made, including the issue of gun control. "Once America decided killing children was bearable, it was over".

"The problem is that innocent people are being shot, and that must be stopped!" the governor announced.

In contrast to numerous students who experienced the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Divin dismissed the idea of organizing a walkout to inspire change.

The students who survived the Parkland shooting weren't too young that they could be dismissed as being told what to say by adults (although that happened) or too old that they could be accused of having a political agenda (although that happened too). It's not clear if any of them will become a reality. They posted heartbreaking videos from their classrooms on Snapchat, pushed back against critics on Twitter, and acted as journalists during their own personal tragedies.

J.J. Watt, star defense end for the Houston Texans, brought cheer on Monday to survivors of the Santa Fe High School massacre. "Don't focus on the day, but the life that they lived before this day because they had a good life". But they're also of a generation that has grown up in the age of increasingly regular school shootings.

A woman places flowers at a makeshift memorial left on May 22 in memory of the victims killed in a shooting at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Tex. It's the second school shooting in Texas this year. In an even more stunning statistic, the death toll from school shootings surpassed the number of active military personnel killed this year.

"Once our students return to school, we will be providing additional security at all campuses with the assistance of the Texas DPS as well as other local law enforcement agencies", Santa Fe ISD Police Chief Walter Braun said. Why would her school be spared when so many others have not? Instead, teachers will be working at Santa Fe ISD headquarters.

Abbot said he wanted those ideas enacted quickly. Weapons seized could be returned to that person's family.

"I believe that's what was behind" the shooting, Antonios Pagourtzis told the newspaper.

"You can't get back home, you can't physically help out in any way", Watt said. "It's a choice that I have to make". Eight students and two teachers were killed and more than a dozen wounded.

The discussions will start in Austin, and Abbott says they will include lawmakers, educators, students, parents, gun-rights advocates and shooting survivors.

Gov. Greg Abbott begins hosting school-safety roundtable discussions Tuesday.
