Let's stay cool, people… Let’s work the problem … Let’s not make things worse by guessing!” Certainly anyone who has worked in engineering (or plumbing!) knows the wisdom of THAT statement.

Of course, the news was filled the whole latter part of last week with the various reports of the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, touching off yet again the guns vs no-guns debate. But … the root cause(s) of the problem? That is the question. Is it guns themselves? They simply seem to be tools manifesting a larger problem. Societal division?

The list goes on endlessly in
