US President Donald Trump has been addressing thousands of conservative activists at their annual gathering near Washington. Trump told them about his core conviction - and he again attacked the media.
Trump has said that training teachers to carry guns "would solve the problem instantly" in a school shooting. The NRA backs the plan and has blamed the left and media for "politicizing" last week's shooting in Florida.
In the US, reactions to shooting rampages at schools seem to follow a national pattern – grieve, then push aside. That might be about to change in the wake of the Florida massacre, says DW's Martin Muno.
The US president has been in office for a year. His critics make it far too easy for him when they unite in blind hate against all things Donald Trump, writes DW Editor-in-Chief Ines Pohl.
Nikolas Cruz, with alleged links to a white supremacist group, was known for violent behavior and was expelled from the school prior to the attack. It was the second-deadliest shooting at a public school in US history.
