After Florida Shooting, Students Across the U.S. Brought Guns to School

Officials across the U.S. responded to various reports of guns on school property the day after a gunman killed 17 people at a south Florida high school. Reports emerged Thursday that a student from West Palm Beach, about two hours north of Wednesday's massacre in Parkland, had allegedly brought two guns to the local high school. Other schools in Florida and Texas, along with Maryland, Idaho and Arizona, also reported students concealing guns or BB guns on their person, in their backpacks or in their vehicles.
