The Aftermath of Shooting at Local Schools

Hosted by

Los Angeles Unified admits that before a handgun went off and wounded two students at Gardena High School, there were no checks for weapons as district policy requires. We hear about security and the history of a troubled campus. Meantime, the LAPD makes no apologies for the inconvenience caused by a seven-square mile dragnet in Woodland Hills after a school policeman was shot outside El Camino High. We hear from School Board member Tamar Galatzan. Also, healthcare reform is front and center again on Capitol Hill with big-time political risks for both Democrats and Republicans. On our rebroadcast of today’s To the Point, we look at Republican efforts to repeal the President’s healthcare reform.
