Santa Fe school shooting renews debate over gun control

"In the midst of such tragedy, we pray for the victims and those mourning in Santa Fe, while we work to ensure swift and meaningful action to protect our students in schools across our state". According to MySanAntonio.com, Abbott also hosted a raffle in October 2015 during his first year as governor.

Attorney Nicholas Poehl said he was investigating media reports that his client was subjected to "teacher-on-student" bullying at the hands of the school's football coaches, which the Santa Fe Independent School District denied in a statement.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick says one way to reduce school shootings is to retrofit school buildings to reduce the number of entrances, as well as arm teachers and train them how to respond to active-shooter situations. Jagdish Khubchandani, an associate professor of community health at Ball State University, previously told Teen Vogue that nearly two-third of school violence prevention policies don't specifically mention how to handle situations of intimate partner violence in teens. A fellow football player said he'd been joking around with the suspect just the day before on a field trip, while another classmate described him as "really unusual and quiet" and says she wasn't surprised that he was the one who allegedly carried out the attack.

"It's a shock we need our entire life to recover from", the 26-year-old added. Another student, Rome Shubert, scaled a 7-foot wall as he fled during the shooting, initially not realizing he had been shot in the head, he said.

"There's drywall and stuff all over the ground", she said.

Emergency crews gather in the parking lot of Santa Fe High School where at least ten people were killed on May 18, 2018 in Santa Fe, Texas.

The suspected shooter, identified by law enforcement as student Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, has been charged with capital murder.

And he told the educators they have his support. "So when we say an average salary is $51,000, that doesn't reflect the base pay". It's inspiring. "They came today because they believe they deserve the legislature's respect for helping to make that happen".

On Monday, students placed photos and flowers at the crosses erected outside the school for each person who died in the attack. "I was just here in Texas in November 10 in Sutherland, Texas where 26 people were murdered, why am I having to do so much". Inevitably, its focus shifted in the wake of the shooting.

In fact, at a church service Sunday, Santa Fe High student Monica Bracknell, who survived the shooting, told the governor the attack should not be turned into a battle over gun control.

On Monday, people throughout the region held a moment of silence at 10 a.m. CST to honor the victims.

Guns are so hard-wired into Texas culture that last week's deadly rampage at Santa Fe High School is considered unlikely to result in any significant restrictions on access to weapons in the Lone Star State. Investigators said they're still working to establish a motive. The One Love Foundation also provides more resources, information, and support.

This deeply religious community came together Sunday for prayer services at local churches and a traditional end-of-school baccalaureate service that acknowledged the pain wracking Santa Fe, a town of 13,000. Students at schools throughout Houston stood and bowed their heads.

The baccalaureate is typically a religious celebration to honor school graduates.

When "Pomp and Circumstance" played, the seniors filed in wearing green caps and gowns. "Wait till that phone call comes in, until you know they're safe", he said.
