Lori Alhadeff: "The gunman, a insane person, just walks right into the school, knocks down the window of my child's door and starts shooting, shooting her and killing her. President Trump, you say, what can you do? Shooting her! And killing her!"

The administration believes more could be done at a local level to strengthen security in communities where schools were less safe than banks or sports venues, Shah added, without specifying what the administration would pursue.
