Chanting "enough is enough" and waving signs emblazoned with messages like "No more silence, end gun violence," hundreds of demonstrators gathered outside the Federal Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale Saturday to rally for stronger gun control laws in the aftermath of the deadly Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
The protest, which aims to improve firearm safety legislation, calls on the Florida Legislature to act in the name of gun regulation.
"We cannot have one more family, one more student, one more life taken because of a failure to hear and enact comprehensive firearm safety legislature in Florida," the Facebook event page reads.

President Donald Trump has consistently pushed back against the idea of Russia meddling in the election that put him in power, dismissing that claim as a hoax and an affront to the legitimacy of his victory.
Now, in a 37-page indictment Friday, special counsel Robert Mueller has laid bare the details of one Russian scheme, designed in part to benefit Trump's election run. It even shows contacts between foreigners and his campaign, albeit unwitting.
And Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said Saturday at a conference in Germany that "the evidence is now really incontrovertible and available in the public domain" that Moscow interfered in the 2016 campaign.

A military helicopter carrying officials assessing damage from a powerful earthquake near Pinotepa Nacional in southern Mexico crashed Friday, killing 13 people and injuring 15, all of them on the ground.
The Oaxaca state prosecutor's office said in a statement that five women, four men and three children were killed at the crash site and another person died later at the hospital.
A state government official who was not authorized to be quoted by name said the chopper crashed into a group of people who had been spending the night in an open field after a powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake hit the area. Aftershocks had caused people to flee their homes for fear they would collapse.

Friday's election-interference indictment brought by Robert Mueller, the U.S. special counsel, underscores how thoroughly social-media companies like Facebook and Twitter were played by Russian propagandists.
And it's not clear if the companies have taken sufficient action to prevent something similar from happening again.
Thirteen Russians, including a businessman close to Vladimir Putin, were charged Friday in a plot to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election through social media propaganda. The indictment said the Russians' conspiracy aimed, in part, to help Republican Donald Trump and harm the prospects of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Special Counsel's Office
Read the indictment that special counsel Robert Mueller brought Friday against 13 Russians and three Russian entities alleging an elaborate plot to "sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election."
They are the first criminal charges tied directly to alleged Russian interference in the election, which Mueller has been investigating.
The indictment includes no allegation that an American knew of the scheme, or that the scheme altered the presidential election, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday.

Officials are asking that anyone who wants to donate to the victims of Wednesday's deadly school at a South Florida high school use an official account.
The Stoneman Douglas Victims' Fund, named for Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was created Thursday to "provide relief and financial support to the victims and families of the horrific shooting," according to the GoFundMe page.
It had received just over $250,000 by 2 p.m. ET, about four hours after it was created, with a goal of $350,000.

After a gunman stormed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in South Florida Wednesday and killed 17 people, a student who survived the massacre said suspected shooter Nikolas Cruz could have been stopped if a teacher had a firearm as well.
Colton Haab is a junior at Stoneman Douglas and a second lieutenant in the school's JROTC. He told Fox News Saturday morning that training and arming teachers on campus would be a "big beneficial factor into school safety."
Haab specifically mentioned assistant football coach Aaron Feis, who was shot to death while selflessly shielding students from bullets. Feis was also a school security guard.

Special counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians and three Russian organizations for allegedly interfering in the U.S. 2016 presidential elections with the intention of promoting President Donald Trump’s candidacy by posting as American activists, creating Facebook groups and organizing fake rallies.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said at a press conference Friday that the Russians "allegedly conducted what they called 'information warfare' against the United States," with the goal of "spreading distrust against candidates and the political system in general."
Charges listed in the 37-page indictment include conspiracy, wire fraud, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft, and they are the most direct allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election that put Trump in the White House. It also marks the first criminal charges against Russians believed to have secretly worked to influence the outcome.

Dead bodies were still inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School when survivors of this week's shooting began speaking out about gun violence. It seemed as if the teens had stepped straight from the bullet-scarred school into the nation's gun debate.
Rather than retreating back into their private lives, the young people who saw classmates slain at the desks next to them are fast becoming advocates for stronger weapons laws and a safer world.

President Donald Trump met with injured victims and first responders from the Parkland school shooting Friday, congratulating the first responders for an "incredible" job but not responding to a question on whether gun laws need to be changed.
Trump and first lady Melania Trump reached Broward Health North Hospital to pay their respects to victims and to thank medical staff helping keep the nine people who were injured, several critically, alive.
Trump's visit comes two days after Nikolas Cruz, who police said confessed, allegedly killed 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
