Gun control won’t solve our violence problem

You probably haven’t heard about this because no shots were fired.
A 15-year-old boy showed up Aug. 28 at Great Crossing High School in Scott County, Kentucky, with a handgun. It was fully loaded.
Another student saw the firearm and notified the principal. Police responded and found the gun in the boy’s waistband. He was taken into custody.
We don’t know why the teenager took a weapon to school or what he planned to do with it. But we can assume that when someone carries a loaded handgun into a school, he intends to use it.
