JJ Watt visits Texas shooting survivors at hospital

The killing of 10 people at a high school is unquestionably evil, but so is the inaction of Congress, controlled by Republicans, as more than 1,600 mass shootings have taken place in the United States since the December 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

In a Saturday interview with Greece's Antenna TV, Pagourtzis said he owned the guns used in the attack and Dimitrios took them from his closet.

Eight students and two teachers were killed in the shooting, which was reportedly carried out against people Pagourtzis felt mistreated him.

Thursday will be a day for the victims of mass shootings in Texas, including the school shooting in Santa Fe that killed 10 and one at a church in Sutherland Springs last fall that killed 26.

"We have one goal ... making sure we're going to keep to our students, our schools, our communities safer", without limiting the right to bear arms, Abbott said.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun to shoot first.

That's in sharp contrast to the response to the February 14 shooting rampage at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 dead. The Wednesday discussion, for example, will include legislative leaders and the lieutenant governor, judges, the commissioner of the Texas Education Agency, mental health experts, the director of the Texas School Safety Center at Texas State University and members of groups advocating for and against increased gun regulation.

These are the people who forced change in Vermont, persuading Gov. Phil Scott to require a criminal background check for every gun sale in the state, and who, in Florida, successfully pushed for a red-flag law and raised the minimum age to buy a gun to 21.

Texas's conservative and powerful lieutenant governor, Dan Patrick, suggested after the shooting that school buildings may need fewer entrances and exits, and that violent video games may be partly to blame.

Still, it's no wonder that most Americans cite the lack of change since the murder of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 as evidence that we are locked in a toxic stasis, thanks mostly to our politicians' love affair with the National Rifle Association.

"The roundtables are more political theater than anything else", Jones said.

Meanwhile Wednesday in Austin, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's meetings on school violence and safety wade into the thorny issue of gun control with the next round. He did not respond to a request for comment.

Extra security measures would be enacted once students return to campus, authorities said Monday, and noted that additional resources - such as a crisis hotline number - were available on the district's website. Abbott has given no indication that he would do so.

One program being run out of Texas Tech University in Lubbock to screen students who could harm themselves or others has Abbott's attention. "It is unchallenged at the state level", Jillson said.

"I only went to grammar school".

About 42,000 students have been screened through the program, according to data provided by Texas Tech.

"Roughly about a third of those that were triaged were for suicidal intention, and they're mostly female; females act in, males act out", Phillips said.
