It's not just about securing the gun....when are parents going to teach gun safety. If you feel like you need to keep guns in the house, you should certainly teach everyone what the dangers are.

Where are these kids getting these guns? Don't parents keep them locked up? I know these kids are big enough to unlock a cabinet and get the gun, the parents need to show some type responsibility for this. Even if the gun belongs to the student the parents still should have it under lock and key. They think they'll never get caught.
