A False Sense of Security

[It's easy to hold out the simplistic, false hope that there is "one step" that can stop heartrending tragedies like this.] And it is even easier to say that one thing won't fix the problem forever and prevent all needless deaths, therefore we shouldn't do anything but accept that evil men will occasionally shoot up our loved ones for no damn reason and learn to live with it.

This morning, when I took my children to school, there was a guard at the gate for the first time.  Obviously, the school intended it as a thoughtful gesture for anxious mothers.

But that's the point.  Most of the "solutions" being touted offer only a false sense of security.  To that point, Ron Fournier had a compelling piece in today's National Journal, titled "What If Nothing or Nobody is to Blame for Adam Lanza?"  Fournier writes:

What if there is nothing or nobody to blame? Would that make this inexplicable horror unbearable?

What if we didn't rush to judgement?...
