Eleven-year-old Andrew Golden stole seven guns from his grandfather before opening fire on classmates outside Westside Middle School in Jonesboro, Ark., in 1998. Fifteen-year-old T.J. Solo-mon broke into a locked case and used his stepfather's hunting rifles to shoot six schoolmates in Conyers, Ga., in 1999. A 6-year-old who shot a first-grader a little over a year ago in Mount Morris Township, Mich., found the loaded semiautomatic lying under a blanket in the house... (

PHILADELPHIA — When 14-year-old Elizabeth Bush of Williamsport, Pa., went to school Wednesday with a gun, she took the .22-caliber revolver her father kept in their home.

Regent Exclusive: Our study finds that in nearly every place where a school shooting took place, the local representative in Congress is a staunch opponent of gun restrictions. Another school shooting, more utterly avoidable death. This time it was in suburban Southern California. "I must tell you that this could happen in any town in America if it can happen in a town such as Santee," said the town's mayor at a press conference. "We are America." If Santee is... (
