"I can't believe it could have been any of us at the school, we need to make [a] change now", he added.

Santa Fe High School had an active-shooter plan and two armed security guards on campus.

The alliance said in a Facebook post that the event will include "worship, words of encouragement and prayers for all of the families who are grieving".

About 20 people, including those who support arming teachers, attended the first of three days of meetings in the state capital, Austin, following the fourth-deadliest us school shooting this year at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Texas, on Friday. He is charged with multiple counts of capital murder and aggravated assault on a public servant.

Five days after a gunman slaughtered 10 people at a Texas high school, teachers are returning to work on Wednesday.

The father, who owns a Houston-based shipping fix company, said his family was distraught over the mass shooting.

"I know a school district in the Houston area that's got 20,000 students who've got undocumented parents", he said.

Abbott, a Republican who has worked to expand gun rights in the state, called for the meetings as he weighs ideas for possible legislative action or executive orders.

The governor said he wants to explore ways to "harden" public schools against potential attacks. A group of student activists wrote the governor a letter Wednesday, criticizing his support of the National Rifle Association and calling for expanded background checks on gun purchases and other gun-control measures.

In contrast to numerous students who experienced the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, Divin dismissed the idea of organizing a walkout to inspire change. The letter was first published as an ad in the Houston Chronicle. Eight students and two teachers were killed and more than a dozen wounded. And, as Hodges said, the level of inaction after that shooting in particular spoke volumes about who and what American adults are willing to sacrifice for their guns.

Tuesday's participants also talked about allowing more school personnel to carry firearms on campus. "Even the young people from Santa Fe are not full-throated advocates of gun control to keep the children safe".

Sawed-off shotguns are illegal without a permit from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. But mental health history information is up to the applicant to provide and is not related to the purchase of a gun. "My life matters, but it's like, there's one person that can come home to their family or there can be 22 people that come home to their families". Her T-shirt had "Santa Fe Strong" stenciled on the front and the victims' names on the back.

Gun rights proponents say it prohibits regulations on gun ownership and that enforcement of existing laws should be sufficient to stop violent incidents like the one in Santa Fe. She noted the church shooter in tiny Sutherland Springs slipped through an existing law. "There has got to be due process".
