Sheriff: Deputies to have AR-15s on school campuses in Broward County

Broward Sheriff: Deputies to carry rifles at Florida school

Deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office are guarding the home of the school resource officer who was stationed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after his family requested the protection, according to multiple news reports on Thursday.

Sheriff Israel said Deputy Peterson should have confronted the killer and neutralized him, but instead he stayed outside.

"There should be no school that shouldn't have at least one", Israel said at a news conference Wednesday afternoon.

Israel said he made a decision to suspend and place Peterson under an internal investigation after viewing a video that showed the deputy's actions during the rampage on February 14, as well as witness statements and the deputy's own statement.

The school resource officer on duty when a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida school found a safe spot outside the building - and did absolutely nothing, officials said Thursday. "We need to look at that", he said.

The FBI has admitted it also received a tip from someone concerned that Cruz could be a school shooter, but the tip wasn't properly forwarded. They hate the second amendment.

"And when that person leaves the facility, the mental health facility where they're examined, that doesn't mean we should give them back their guns", he added. "Now that the triplets are adults, they each have the free choice to decide their own faith".

Guttenberg called on the senator to do something about guns, to work with the people affected by the massacre. "Because we have people on the second floor, and the people are saying, 'No, he's not on the second floor'". "We give them a little bit of a bonus". Florida Republican Marco Rubio, who attended the town hall, said that he also opposed arming teachers. "The notion that my kids are going to school with teachers that are armed with a weapon is quite frankly not something I'm comfortable with", Rubio said.

Survivors of last week's deadly shooting have called for stricter gun laws, prompting the nationwide activist movement #NeverAgain.

"Anyone who wants guns in schools has no understanding of what goes on inside them - or worse, doesn't care", she said. "I said, 'never again'".

"Let's talk about prevention", Hockley said.
