11-year-old brings gun to school in backpack - accidentally shoots classmate

What could possibly go wrong?

Details remain sketchy. Apparently, on Friday, a Homestead boy brought a handgun to school in his backpack. In class, the kid dropped the backpack on the floor and the handgun discharged, sending a bullet into the leg of another student. The injured boy was airlifted to Miami Children's Hospital and is in stable condition.

Not only do we have too many guns in Florida but many are unsecured. How on earth does an 11-year-old kid get his hands on a handgun     loaded no less?

A gun in the home is an invitation to disaster. Infinitely more innocent people are killed or wounded than criminals are thwarted. I will never understand the correlation of the gun fetish to the Bible Belt. At least people should be intelligent enough to employ trigger locks when children are in the home.
