TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - City officials discussed the plan after a former student carried out a shooting on February 14 at Stoneman Douglas High School in the US state of Florida, killing 17 students and faculty, CNN reported on Tuesday citing Police Chief Dave Draovitch.

The United States has faced a wave of nationwide demonstrations and school walk-outs against gun violence, as well as calls for stricter firearms controls.

The protests were ignited by the mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas. On May 18, a 17-year-old gunman killed 10 people and wounded 10 others at a high school in the Texas city of Santa Fe.

In the wake of the Florida shooting, US President Donald Trump said teachers should be authorized to carry weapons and stricter background checks must be enforced for gun buyers.
