High schools students to hold Democratic gubernatorial debate on Sunday

NRA files lawsuit over FL gun control law

The Broward County Sheriff's Office released audio of 10 of the 81 calls its 911 center received during the February 14 shooting that left 17 dead and its aftermath.

One woman's voice cracked as she read the dispatcher a text message from her son: "Shot, shot, shot. Mom". The mother can be heard telling her daughter, "Tell them to pray, tell them to pray for strength".

In Tallahassee, the Florida House was expected to vote on gun legislation stemming from the school shooting.

The recordings detail the initial commotion over events as Nikolas Kruz, 19, began his assault on students and faculty at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR-15 rifle. He received a visit from the Broward County Sheriff while in hospital, who later tweeted asking prayers "for the swift recovery of Anthony and all others from Stoneman Douglas".

She is on another line with her daughter who is in a classroom with just one other girl. "I thank you all for your support and please do not stop praying for him and my family". "If he shoots, you need to play dead. If he shoots, play dead". Critics see that as posing a particular risk to minority students who they say are more likely to be shot in the heat of a disciplinary situation or if mistaken as an intruder.

Caller: "Thank you for all your help".

"What I most want tonight is for people to leave with hope that we can do something, that we can change things for the better", Beyer said.

Trump threatens to impose "reciprocal tax" on India, China
Earlier, Trump had picked on India for high import duties on America's Harley-Davidson motorbikes sold in India. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Thursday said it is time the " China threat theory" was laid to rest.

Dispatcher: "Just stay on the phone with me".

While school shootings make headlines, 46 kids are killed by gun violence every single day in America, the majority of these, in marginalized communities.

"I'm sorry. I can't hear you". Many Douglas High student survivors demanded a ban on assault-style weapons, along with a hike in the age to purchase rifles. "Our teachers and other school employees are ready to fiercely defend our students, but none of them should ever have to choose between shepherding students to safety or confronting an armed assailant where they are sure to draw fire toward the very students they are trying to protect". Marion Hammer, the NRA's Florida lobbyist, called the bill "a display of bullying and coercion". "We want to offer sympathy to the students of Parkland and also respect the fact that they are young adults and they do have the right to speak up on their own behalf", Fielden said.

One call came from a panicked mother who could be overheard speaking directly to her child.

"This is an idea that will result in loss of life, however well-intentioned, because it's nearly a fog of war situation, and the people who are there are not soldiers and they are not law enforcement", Democratic state Rep. Joe Geller said, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "She says the shots were close".

"Boyer's 6th-grade son attends Bellevue Middle School, and she said he understands why the walk-out is happening. What room number is he in?"

"We cannot condone students leaving classes during the instructional day to participate in this activity", Superintendent Barbara P. Canavan wrote in a letter to parents and students."It presents, paradoxically, a threat to student safety, as word of the walkout has been widely disseminated and students who go outside could become more vulnerable".
