This Fifth Grader's Explanation Of Shooting Drills Has People In Tears

By Mark Pygas

On Valentine's Day last week, a former student of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, shot 17 people dead and injured 14 more in the deadliest U.S. school shooting since Sandy Hook. The accused 19-year-old was caught after fleeing the scene. 

In an address to the nation during the aftermath, President Donald Trump said he would discuss policies to make schools safer during a meeting with U.S. governors and attorneys general later this month. He added that "it's not enough to take actions that make us feel like we are making a difference -- we must make that difference."  

Some media outlets are reporting that President Donald Trump consulted guests at Mar-a-Lago as to what action he should take on gun control in the wake of the shooting.
