Before Columbine there was never much want or need for major school security. Students could often come and go as they pleased without having to answer to an officer or teacher, and threats by students weren’t taken seriously. Most schools had no officers on duty and only a handful of security cameras around the school. They didn’t have regular lockdown drills for emergencies, and they were not prepared for such a tragedy.

I agree with the case ruling that gun free school zone act exceeds congress ' authority. Although having a bunch of students caring a gun on school grounds isn 't a great idea I don 't necessarily believe that has anything to do with interstate commerce. There is no good reason for students to bring a loaded gun to school. However due to the amounts of shooting we 've had in public places leads me to believe that the government should get involved, obviously states can 't control this issue it themselves.
