A False Sense of Security

I agree with you on the mental illness factor. It does account for some of our violence problems. However this is worth considering. How much of our mental illness problem is the result of things I've discussed such as broken homes, lack of rearing, bad education, drugs, media, political and entertainment industry influence? People are a product of their environment.

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?...
