Tony Montalto, the president of Stand With Parkland, a group founded by the seventeen families who lost a loved one at the Parkland school massacre in 2018, on Thursday said President Donald Trump wants to help prevent another mass shooting.

"[Trump] said he wants to help prevent another Parkland," organization president Tony Montalto told Newsweek

"He understands that there's multiple steps in doing that."

Montalto lost his daughter, Gina, in the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.

Trump met with some families of the victims to discuss potential safety measures as the two-year anniversary of the killings approach. The focus was on the School Safety Clearinghouse, a project backed by Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., which aims to help schools prevent, protect, mitigate, respond to, and recover from emergency situations.

Montalto said his group has discussed several ways to prevent shootings.

"Our group looks at school safety in a unique and all-encompassing way," he said. "We look at securing the campus, better mental health screening and support programs and finally responsible firearm ownership if you choose to own one. All of those three pillars failed us that horrible day nearly two years ago."
