Congressman Valadao votes in support of bill to stop school violence

Kansas legislators reject numerous gun-control measures

Kansas legislators reject numerous gun-control measures

The bill now goes to the Senate where Sen.

"Today, as students across the country are marching for change by walking out of their classrooms, I think it was appropriate for the House, with my support, to pass this bipartisan bill, because if there is one place students should feel safe, it is at school", Rep. John Curtis said.

"There was a catastrophic failure at every single level which made this shooting possible and we have to find a way to plug those holes", said Cornyn.

The vote came as the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced it is doubling the number of supervisors assigned to review tips received from the public about possible threats of mass shootings or other violence.

Ted Deutch (D-Fla.), whose district includes Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of last month's shooting.

"We sent legislation to the Senate in December".

The Florida newspaper is less enthusiastic than the Florida Congressman. But it is unclear whether senators will get to the bills before they start a two-week recess on March 26 because other measures may consume floor time. In our schools, training students, faculty, and local law enforcement to recognize and address threats before they escalate is a key element in fostering a safe school environment.

Despite the widespread bipartisan vote, Democrats urged Republicans to vote on additional measures to prevent gun violence, such as universal background checks. A larger rally is planned March 24. The biggest applause by far was for Vermont Sen. "And we must rally around consensus, evidenced-based solutions that will protect our nation's most valuable resource -- its youth -- from violent attacks".

In one instance in September, an agent dismissed a tip about a YouTube posting, under Cruz's name, that said, "I'm going to be a professional school shooter", after the agent believed the true identity of the poster couldn't be determined, Bowdich said.

"High school students who have lost their friends are literally begging us to take action", said Sen.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said the Federal Bureau of Investigation gets about 4,100 tips a day at its nationwide call centres with a staff of about 160 to handle them.

"People always say kids are the future", Blank said, outside the White House. If it's approved there, President Trump is expected to sign it. "A tragedy like Parkland can't happen ever again!"

The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a school safety measure that, while not including any gun control measures, seeks to prevent shootings like the one that killed 17 people last month at a school in Parkland, Fla.

McCarthy noted that the House late a year ago passed legislation that would bolster the background check system by compelling federal agencies to accurately and quickly report information about people banned from banning weapons.

While the bill received overwhelming support in the House, 407-10, the measure now heads to the Senate.

At the press conference, Ryan Petty talked about his daughter Alaina, who was shot and killed at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School.

In Florida, Gov. Rick Scott already signed a controversial bill that, among other things, would raise the age to purchase a rifle from 18 to 21 and would allow some teachers to be armed.

"Build on common ground", Petty said.
