According to the National Parents' Resource Institute for Drug Education nationally one in thirteen high school students will carry a gun to school. But South Central Kentucky schools have taken steps to be prepared.

Simpson County School Superintendent Ray Hammers says guns in schools just became an issue in the past few years. He says many students bring guns in to show off and is doubtful students would shoot someone. But regardless of whether shots are fired bringing a gun onto school property is a felony and the school must be prepared. That is why they are encouraging students to talk to teachers if they see a gun.

Hammers says the school resource officers from the sheriff's department have also helped keep gun safety at bay.
