The Broward Country Sheriff confirms the armed school resource officer responded to the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, but never went inside.

The president also pledging action talking about tougher background checks mental health screening, a ban on bump stocks, and raising the age of buying a gun from 18 to 21.
