There is no requirement to register firearms or obtain a purchase permit and some specially trained school employees are allowed to carry firearms on school grounds.

Our January 9, CAT-TV show will focus on these and related issues and the approach being taken on gun safety by one group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.
