FBI admits it failed to act on tip off about Florida shooter

Calls for gun control grow louder after Florida shooting

Florida Gov. Rick Scott called the FBI's response to the tip "unacceptable" and called for Wray's resignation.

"I looked her in the eye and I said if you need to walk out of the classroom and go take care of yourself, go take care of yourself". But the FBI's statement is the latest piece of evidence that many people not only saw red flags in Cruz's behavior but tried to report them - and those warnings were not thoroughly pursued or fell on deaf ears. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign - there is no collusion.

Agents with the bureau's MS office got back to him "immediately", Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on September 25.

The Sun-Sentinel reported that Florida's Department of Children and Families investigated when Cruz posted a video on the social media network Snapchat showing him cutting his arms in 2016. Neighbours and classmates knew he was a big problem.

Several Republican lawmakers have said they would support expanded background checks and possibly a ban on bump stocks, devices that allow semi-automatic firearms to replicate the firing speed of fully automatic firearms.

According to the Miami Herald, the owners of Sunrise Tactical Supply, the Coral Springs, Florida shop that authorities said in November sold suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz the AR-15 assault weapon that was used in the shooting last week, has been "closed indefinitely". Saying that school security should be a top priority, she called for armed guards at schools, metal detectors at every school entrance and even suggested that students should be provided with bulletproof backpacks that open up into "bulletproof suits".

The caller specifically mentioned the potential for Cruz to carry out a school shooting. "I am committed to getting to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter, as well as reviewing the processes for responding to information that we receive from the public".

On Friday, Trump and first lady Melania visited survivors, victims and medical staff who have treated the injured. He made the visits on the way to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach. "We feel neglected. At this point, you're either with us or you're against us".
