A murky picture has emerged from Gardena High School, where apparently a gun in a student’s backpack accidentally discharged in a backpack, shooting two students. For a country that is already jittery about gun violence and mass shootings, today’s news is unnerving, even if the early indications are that the gun was not fired as part of a wider plot to attack the school. What are the conditions of the injured students and why was a gun brought to the school in the first place?
