Richard Robbins wrote that perhaps one of the main reasons for the prolif-
eration of guns in schools was due to a weak regulatory structure. Although
this may be one factor, I would question how important a factor it is...
Having attended the type of schools being discussed, I don't think that a
strong regulatory structure would have kept the guns, and more importantly
the general increase in violence, from becoming a prominent part of today's
school environment. Its a very complex subject that includes the schools,
communities, funding, government, etc.. and perhaps too ambitious a subject
to tackle in this forum.

Just some thoughts,
