Whenever I see regulars commenting on something in the news on a post regarding a different subject, as Herb did here:
Does anyone know what to do about the continued massacre of citizens in public places in this country? The kids that were killed yesterday–they were my kids. Oh, not literally, but every time it happens, I see my own kids, and in a real way, we are all in this together.
I suppose some people will want to arm more people with weapons to fire back as soon as the guy starts shooting, and others will want to blame socialism for the guy’s maladjustment to begin with, but I’d like to know about some workable solutions, besides turning our society into the set of a Grade B Cowboy movie (everybody armed with pistols). Can anyone help? Who is going to stop the next guy who is mad at the world from killing another dozen people? And the next kids may very well be my own.

… I realized I may have been remiss in my duty, not having posted on a subject of high interest to readers.
So consider this post an opportunity to discuss the shootings in Illinois yesterday, and other such events.
