Highland Middle School student accused of bringing unloaded gun to school. (March 5)

THB: In this day and age there is no reason not to have a metal detector at the school entrance most used by the students. We are glad that the gun was unloaded, but how about next time? There are no safety procedures in place if there is no metal detector on site.
