As families prepare to bury victims of another US shooting this Friday, grief mingled with anger amid signs of possible failures in the security of the center and the need to introduce greater controls on the sale of weapons .
Donald Trump, who at the moment has highlighted only the possible mental problems of the confessed murderer Nikolas Cruz, is in the middle of a campaign to introduce tougher weapons controls.
The New York Post, one of Trump’s favorite publications, makes an editorial appeal to the president to put an end to the lack of control.
In a plea to Trump, the editorial committee of the Post wrote on the cover of the Friday edition: “Mr. President, please act”, adding under the heading:” We need sensitive control of weapons to help stop the killing”.
In the opinion section, the «New York Post», by Rupert Murdoch, adds: «Mr. President, this is your moment. You can keep your promises to children and parents and keep your promise to do “all we can do”. Show that you want to stop the carnage and refuse to be held hostage by the extremists».
New details about Nikolas Cruz: he fled Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school and fled for more than an hour before being stopped by the police. In between, he could also go through two fast food restaurants: McDonald’s and Subway. The teenager confessed to having carried out one of the deadliest shootings in the United States, according to a report from the sheriff’s department.
The governor of Florida, Rick Scott, has assured that “everything is on the table” when it comes to tightening the laws on arms control in the state after the shooting that took place on Wednesday in the high school, where 17 students died.
“Everything is on the table. I will look at all possible ways in which we can ensure that our children are safe”, he told the US television network CNN.
