What could possibly go wrong?

A Tarpon Springs High School 11th-grader faces charges of bringing a loaded gun on campus Monday morning, police said. Tarpon Springs is on Florida’s west coast, about 25 miles northeast of Tampa.

Dre’Tonio Maitez Greer, 16, told officials he recently found the gun and brought it to school for protection because of problems he was having outside of school with other students.

The black, .32-caliber Berretta had three rounds in the magazine, which was inserted into the gun, police said. However, there were no rounds in the chamber.

Isn’t it clear that we have too many weapons floating around that nobody is accountable for? What will it take to restore sanity on gun safety? What will the body count have to be?
