Confessed Santa Fe gunman doesn't remember much about shooting, his lawyer says

Grace Johnson a student at Santa Fe High School in Texas center speaks during a roundtable discussion in Austin Texas Thursday

There have been 22 school shootings in the U.S. so far this year, with 26 students killed.

The school's seniors and administrators were invited to attend the game for free, the Santa Fe High School choir sang the national anthem, and the Rockets wore a school patch on their jerseys during the game.

"I don't think it's a very good idea because of what's been happening in this world", says Ridgewood Realtor Cynthia Meeks. There were 1,400 students in the school at the time of the attack.

Abbott said he would take the feedback from the roundtables and work on an action plan, but he did not give a timeline on when he would release it.

On Friday, a group of Santa Fe High School students urged for stricter home gun storage laws during an event organized by March For Our Lives, which was established after the February shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Sabika Sheikh, 17, died with seven other students and two teachers when a 17-year-old student opened fire at Santa Fe High School on Friday.

The students also called for enhanced security at schools and mental health background checks for anyone trying to buy a firearm.

How gun owners really feel about gun control

Father of the Pakistani girl who was killed in the Texas school shooting last week said he believed his daughter would be safe in the US. We're so glad you're here with us tonight. "I am grateful to the Government, the Prime Minister, the media for extending their support to us and helping us to cope with our grief and loss", he told media after the burial.

An Abbott spokeswoman would not confirm if those letters were received.

"If they are serious about making schools more secure, they need to quit talking about arming teachers and start appropriating the state funds necessary to hire more campus police and install more security safeguards in school buildings", including metal detectors, Clay Robison, spokesman for the Texas State Teachers Association, said this week.

Texas Democrats have described the sessions as theatrics that will skirt major issues such as substantive gun control.

The father of a 17-year-old boy accused in the May 18 Santa Fe shooting has said the teen took his father's guns from a closet.

"This is not a gun thing", said Jay Horn, the parent of a student who is in the hospital after injuries from the shooting.
