IMHO, the media, government and sheeple are going after edge cases. Sure they are truly heinous and despicable. BUT, rare, just like terrorism. I'm more likely to die by being hit by lightening, falling off my roof, or being killed by a semi driving to work. But, those are just acts of nature, my stupidity, or accidents. They are accepted risks. Whereas terrorism and massacres are outlying events. Nothing we can do will prepare us for them. They scare the populace. They want SOMETHING to be done. Ergo, most people will take off our shoes, subject themselves to be scanned, drop trousers. Allow themselves to be humiliated for a false sense of security. Billions of dollars are being spent on useless measures that will not stop the next EVENT. A well thought out plan will find the weakness in the system and exploit it to the maximum. Sure the UK doesn't have many firearms massacres, but they have bombings on double-decker buses and in the tube. Isn't bomb making illegal there? Why didn't their laws prohibiting the making or possessing of bomb making materials make a difference? Why? Because, those wishing to do evil, are not going to follow the law, rules and or norms of a polite society. Evil will always have the upper hand at first contact because they are willing to do the unthinkable, the unimaginable. We will be shocked that they FOOLED us again. The people will demand something to be done. They will give away their freedom, for a false sense of security. Laws will be passed. Evil will carry on as if nothing has changed, because for them, nothing has. All laws, regulations and protocols do is control those accepting that they are controlled, or accept that the laws are fair and proper in society. But remember, evil is not constrained by the same rules as us. Evil will continue to raise it's ugly head from time to time. It's inevitable. The PEOPLE will demand that the GOVERNMENT do something to prevent the EVIL that the MEDIA is inundating us with. The puppets will pass laws, the media will report, and the people will cheer and applaud their new SAFER society. So this is how a republic dies ; To Thunderous Applause. Maybe those Amish have something here with their avoidance of technology. They probably have less psychological issues like depression, anxiety, ADD and ADHD. I'm thinking that maybe one of those communities in Ohio needs a sheepdog.
