JJ Watt visits Texas shooting survivors at hospital

The killing of eight students and two teachers last week at Santa Fe High School prompted the governor to call a series of roundtable discussions on school safety, starting Tuesday in Austin.

Pagourtzis' son, 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis, is on suicide watch at the Galveston County Jail, where he is being held without bail.

A recent CNN story reported that 170 Texas school districts (out of about 1,000) already allow teachers and administrators to carry concealed weapons on school grounds. I have the deepest sympathy for the teachers and students who died or were wounded in any and all of this countries school shootings.

If you own a gun, you should be legally responsible for how that gun is used. I've always kind of felt like eventually it was going to happen here too, so-I don't know. He is charged with multiple counts of capital murder and aggravated assault on a public servant. He says his son didn't drink and never got into fights.

I have not seen printed or broadcast in any media format the answer to my next question.

Abbott said he hoped some of the ideas could be implemented by the start of the next school year, such as the improved threat assessment system that would allow schools across Texas to better share information.

"The response by the Republican majority will be overwhelmingly focused on how do we make schools safer via architecture, via more armed patrols, via metal detectors and the like", he said. It's unclear when the autopsies will be complete, Florence said, and release of the completed autopsies could be delayed at the prosecutor's request. Abbott said he'll meet Wednesday with gun rights and gun control advocacy groups and Thursday with victims of the attack at Santa Fe High School and the November attack on a church in Sutherland Springs.

Watt led efforts to raise more than $37 million for victims of Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Houston past year.

The suspect won't face the death penalty if he is convicted.

Greg Abbott has convened the first of three roundtable meetings to address school violence and safety.

At the first meeting on Tuesday, participants proposed expanding school safety training programs, bolstering threat assessment systems and expanding a pilot program created to screen for students, who might be a threat to themselves or others.

Earlier this month at the National Rifle Association's annual meeting in Dallas, Abbott himself said, "The problem is not guns". And, as Hodges said, the level of inaction after that shooting in particular spoke volumes about who and what American adults are willing to sacrifice for their guns.

On Wednesday, district teachers and support staff will return to school, the district said.

However unfortunately, the United States government, including President Donald Trump, has failed to recognise people's easy access to guns as a major problem. State Rep. Chris Turner of Grand Prairie, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Friday that the state should also pass universal background checks and require the reporting of stolen guns.
