It has become every parents’ nightmare: their child stuck in a mass shooting at their school. When WJLA met one mother outside of Great Mills High School in St. Mary’s County, Maryland, she didn’t seem to know she was to pick up her son at another school 15 miles away. She wanted her son then and there.
“I’m sitting here because I don’t want to go there,” she said. “I want my son out of that school. I’m waiting for them to release my son. They’re telling us to go to some school. I just can’t go there.”
She was furious that the school doesn’t have metal detectors and backpacks aren’t searched when students enter the building, and she thinks they should be. “How did this gentleman get in the school with this gun?” she asked.
Great Mills has one officer on duty at all times and several armed guards that protect 1600 students.
The terrified mother said that her son told her “he heard gunshots and took off running.” He also told a teacher “that someone must have been shot.” She said that she’s just thankful it wasn’t her child. “Bullets have no names,” she said about most mass shooters being indiscriminate about their victims.

Trump has figured out how to get taxpayers to renovate one of his golf courses: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.
"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."
Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office
The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.
Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.
He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.
Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.
Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report
White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.
"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
