Shooting scare prompts lockouts at Durham schools

But the agency said Friday that agents failed to investigate.

"We truly regret any additional pain this has caused", he said.

"The FBI's failure to take action against this killer is unacceptable", Scott said.

As reports have leaked out about alleged Florida school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, a disturbing amount of people have basically said that they knew something was wrong with the individual.

The FBI has admitted that it received two tips about Cruz, but failed to act.

But even though it is still a time of grieving, the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High are already taking action against the gun control laws in the United States.

You don't need a license or registration to own a gun.

As politicians have offered messages of "thoughts and prayers" in the aftermath of another school shooting, the students who survived the massacre in Florida have responded with impassioned pleas for gun control and pointed criticism of politicians who have received political donations from the National Rifle Association.

Parkland: Just days after 17 people were killed at a Florida high school, hundreds gathered on Saturday in Fort Lauderdale to rally for stronger gun control laws while just 40 miles away, people attended a scheduled gun show. The local sheriff's office reportedly visited Cruz's home at least 39 times in the last seven years, in many cases to deal directly with Cruz's behavior. Police and a SWAT team cleared students from the school as ambulances and family members waited for their loved ones to escape.

Cruz reportedly arrived to the scene of the massacre in a gold Uber vehicle, carrying a black bag and wearing a black hat.

Its OK to obtain a gun, like a handgun, but not an assault rifle, she said, adding that she hoped Mr. Trump and Congress would issue laws to strengthen background checks, ban assault rifles and prevent people with mental problems from accessing guns.

"To every politician taking donations from the NRA, shame on you!" said student Emma Gonzalez, who criticised Donald Trump for the multi-million dollar support the USA president has received from the powerful gun lobby group, the National Rifle Association.

"Every one of these calls for service will be looked at and scrutinized", he said. "No guns under 21".

The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday acknowledged that it mishandled a January tip that the 19-year-old man accused of killing 17 people at a Florida high school had guns and the desire to kill.

"'If you were to pick one person you might predict in the future would shoot up a school or do this, it would be this kid, '" John Crescitelli told the Miami Herald, quoting his son, Daniel, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas.

District officials say they're trying to keep schools as safe as possible.
