Explore real solutions to reduce gun tragedies

So,once again, after an unimaginable tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, law-abiding citizens are going to come under fire for strict gun control. Anti-gunners are going to take this tragedy to further their agenda. Any sane person knows that only law-abiding citizens obey the law.

When I was a kid, we had to practice getting under our desks at school in case of a possible nuke attack from Russia. Yeah, laughable, I know. So what are we doing with this very real threat? Disarming is not the answer. Building design, access control, student-teacher training and information technology make much more sense!

We are a reactive society, not a proactive one. After every accident, every tragedy, we think: “How can we make sure this doesn’t happen again?” Well, it’s easy to say: “Get all the guns off the street.” We all know that this will never work. Bad people will always find a way. How about a real solution?
