I-Team: Guns found in schools - Search county-by-county

Posted: Updated:

Students. Schools. Guns. Across the country we hear about kids as young as elementary school who decide to sneak a gun onto campus, sometimes with deadly results. Thankfully, most of the time the weapon is discovered and confiscated, a note sent home or emailed. The child suspended or expelled.

It's happening in Georgia more than you might think.

We analyzed five years worth of mandatory reporting data. More than 300 real handguns or rifles discovered. How are these students getting these weapons? Can they be stopped? Can our schools be made safer without turning them into armed camps?

Watch our investigation and search the data for yourself. Then let us know your thoughts.
