New information this morning into the school shooting last week that the school resource officer failed to engage the shooter.

This as President Trump doubles down on a call to arm teachers and the NRA speaks out about the school shooting in Florida.

NBC correspondent Edward Lawrence is live in Washington to show us all sides of this gun control debate.

The president this morning says he wants action from congress specifically to protect our schools from becoming targets for a killer, but one of his ideas is controversial.

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.

The NRA only agreeing more guns need to be in schools

The NRA blaming the latest school shooting on failures at the FBI to act on tips about the gunman.

This gun safety debate raged for decades now President Trump pledges action.

Handful of states already have laws allowing teachers to carry guns if they get special training.
