The tool or the job

Alabama. North Carolina. Binghamton, NY. Pittsburgh. Virginia Tech.

What do they have in common? Well, we all know. The killers chose a tool to do a job. The job is deplorable, one that sane people won’t consider.

But 30 years of attempting to control the tool hasn’t worked. I know Americans collectively tend to have short memories, to plan short term, and to take a long time to learn things, but isn’t 30 years enough?

Shouldn’t we have figured out by now that it would be more intelligent to control the job than the tool? To control the job means two things — controlling the people who would do this job, and allowing its victims to have a defense.
