Guns on campus – a right, or very wrong?

At a time in this country when gun laws and safety are being heavily talked about, who's responsibility is it to keep schools safe and gun free?

A Gardena High School student was taken into custody this morning after a gun he was carrying in his backpack went off, injuring two other young people. First reports say the shooting was an accident, but in a time of great concern over increasing violence and arguments over gun control, how does a student bring a gun to campus without detection? We ask who should be responsible for school safety –the district, the parents, the police? Or should we all just weapon up… hmmm?
