JJ Watt visits Santa Fe shooting survivors and nurses at hospital

J.J. Watt offers to pay for Santa Fe funerals

One of the roundtable participants, Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks, said there would be pros and cons in allowing school personnel to carry firearms on campus. "It is homes without discipline and communities without values".

Victims injured in the deadly shooting at Santa Fe High School received a special visitor at the hospital. Tuesday's inaugural session focused on school districts arming teachers and better tracking student mental health.

After opening remarks by Abbott, reporters were ushered out of the room, as Abbott's office announced they would be prior to the meeting. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., had drills too.

"The difference in Texas is the Republican Party is in complete control". He said after the shooting that he wanted to use it across the state. Santa Fe High School is the site of the 22nd school shooting to take place in the United States this year.

None of those scenarios would have snagged the suspect in Santa Fe.

Other ideas that Abbott mentioned were increasing the number of school counselors, creating incentives for students to share information about potential threats and evaluating an expansion of a state program that arms teachers.

"You could feel a unification of voices around the issues he discussed from various school districts and law enforcement", he told The Texas Tribune. "But if our teachers had guns that could change a lot".

The teenager is being held in the Galveston County jail on capital murder charges.

Santa Fe High School shooting: Who are the victims?

The team also released a statement regarding the heartbreaking incident, which reads: "On behalf of the Texans organization, we are saddened by the tragic events at Sante Fe High School this morning and extend our thoughts and heartfelt condolences to the victims, their families and all those affected".

"They see the person as the problem and security as the second problem". That allowed the rest of the school to be evacuated safely.

The 17-year-old who allegedly shot and killed 10 people and wounded 13 others at a Texas high school used his father's legally owned shotgun and revolver during the rampage. They'll have access to "counseling assistance from many state and local agencies" and will see additional law enforcement officers on campus, the superintendent said. Since 2013, Texas has reduced the cost and hours of training needed to be licensed to carry a handgun, allowed "open carry" for handgun license holders, and allowed concealed handguns in college classrooms and dorms. In 2017, he bragged about his accuracy with a pistol at a shooting range.

You could nearly conjure the whole scene in your mind without visiting the place, the aftermaths of school shootings having become so familiar. Abbott so far has committed to even less.

This time, Abbot will meet with school officials, mental health experts and interest groups that advocate for and against gun control measures. So will Texas Gun Sense, which promotes common-sense reforms to prevent violence. "We are glad the governor invited us", Switzer said.

"We did more today than talk".

And it's not just Republicans. "A pure child, a child who was ashamed to look me in the face", he said.

"I have guns, I am a hunter and had a farm which I rented in the 1980s", he told Greek Antenna TV. "It means I'm against stupidity".
