    Thanks for the Trib link.

    "This is an egregious violation of our Safe School policies. We take this very seriously," Horsley said, adding that the boy’s family "has been very cooperative and helpful to our investigation."

    [...]

    The boy had obtained the gun from his home, where a visiting relative had apparently left it during a visit last week.

    I wonder... Won't the ownership records for the handgun verify if it truly belong to a relative or not? Why did they even allow a gun-toting relative in their house in the first place? That person would be persona non grata in my house just for bring a gun in let alone losing it.
