Shortly after the tragic school shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas that left 17 dead, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi traveled to Parkland, Florida and attended a update press conference with Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and Governor Rick Scott.
During the her address to reporters, Bondi announced that the state would be covering the costs of all the funerals, as well counseling expenses.
Praying for everyone involved in today's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. My victim advocates will be available in full force to help the victims and their families with any services they need.

Florida’s two U.S. Senators, Marco Rubio (R) and Bill Nelson (D), both took to social media to express their thoughts over the senseless shooting.
A mass shooting at one of Florida’s schools is a day you pray will never come. Jeanette and I are devastated and saddened by today’s inexplicable tragedy at Broward County’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. We join millions of Americans in praying for the victims, their families and all the students and teachers impacted by today’s events. We are grateful to the emergency responders, law enforcement officials, nurses and doctors who assisted the victims of today’s tragedy. Over the next few hours and days we will learn more about why and how this killer carried out this carnage. My office and I remain ready to assist state and local officials and anyone impacted by this horrible tragedy.”–Sen. Marco Rubio (R)
Senator Nelson on Twitter:
Sandy Hook, Pulse nightclub, Ft. Lauderdale airport, Las Vegas and now Parkland, Florida – when is this going to stop? It’s not going to stop until the American people say: enough is enough! What is it going to take for enough to be enough?
