DEVELOPING:Authorities say two students were shot Tuesday morning at a high school in Los Angeles. One person has been arrested.

Police believe the gunman, a black male wearing black clothing, is a student at Gardena High School, the school where the shooting occurred.

Police say one bullet was apparently fired accidentally hitting a 15-year-old boy in the neck and a 15-year-old girl in the head. The girl is in surgery at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, police say.

Sources reportedly told The Los Angeles Times that after the gun fired, the student who brought it to school apologized to his classmates before running out of the classroom.

We need a law banning high school students from possessing handguns. Maybe we need a law banning anybody from having a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school. Maybe handguns in CA should have mandatory drop tests to assure their safety. I can think of many laws that would have prevented this.

No, it means it was an accident, and the idiot is really sorry.

Do a lot of "gunmen" attend high school in California? I don't think you can call someone still in daycare a "man," no matter what his chronological age.

"Police believe the gunman, a black male wearing black clothing, is a student at Gardena High School, the school where the shooting occurred."

Is Obama's hate filled vitriol to blame?

Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
Obama to libearal supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

Gunman hit two with one accidental shot. Then apologized and ran.

It could happen.

No doubt the gubmint is just waiting for a goo reason to invoke martial law! Encouraging anarchy would be the created cause for such a move, con’t you think?

My theory is that this kid is a gang member and brought the gun to school for protection, then it went off.(This is Gardens after all, high crime area, lots of gang activity) They have metal detectors at this school, but they don’t require every single student to go through it..so that is how this kid was missed. Prayers for the 15 year old girl who was shot in the head

In the spirit of today's Homeland Security, the following should be implemented immediately:

It sure seems that having a black, jive talking, whitey hating, abrasive president has caused a helluva lot more wildings, shootings, beatings, gang banging, etc in the black community. And I’m not even joking. America’s first ghetto president.

“If Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.”

We don't need new laws restricting guns in school - what we need are responsible parents and school administrators.

For years I saw many students bringing guns (rifles and handguns) to school, allowed by the schools - and parents.

They were there during various hunting seasons - the students were high-school age, all of them well trained in gun safety.

Today we have idiots as parents, teachers and average citizens.

>>Thats one helluvan accident.<<

Yeah, head and neck? I suppose it could have done that from floor level if the two people shot were 30 or 40 feet away, but close up the only way it could hit two people like that is if they were in a lip lock.

a clarifying P.S.

Not once did any of those guns ever get fired accidentally... as none of them were ever loaded... that is, until after school, and after arrival where game were.

I understand banning firearms ON school property; however, think about some houses sitting next to or across from a school. How about driving by a school to the range? Would there be firearms in your vehicle? Many schools are based in neighborhoods. Would you take away the constitutional right of a homeowner based on what some nitwit did? Just a thought.

Sure was. The gun accidently went off and shot two people. The shooter wasn't white so it's already a non-story to the media. They've moved on.
