A False Sense of Security

It's not a "false" sense of security, Carol. We have had Constables at our schools since 9/11. They are both a deterrent and there if someone does cause trouble. Thank God there have been no shooting incidents in our district. Be thankful for any measure of security being offered at your kids' school. All we can do is prepare for the worst and pray for the best.

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?...
