    Families of the 17 people killed in Florida are mourning the loss of their children as the debate on gun control resurfaces on the political scene.

    This is the 18th school shooting in the United States so far this year, and it's only mid-February.

    In Washington however, tougher gun laws seem as far away as ever.
