Attached is yet another excellent article by STRATFOR’s  vice president of tactical analysis, Scott Stewart. In the bullets of the Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF) segment the author makes an interesting point that I have heard more than once over the last several months: “Despite widespread agreement that it’s important to stop school attacks, nobody currently owns the problem.”

I recommend this article to you for the many excellent points he makes. Perhaps there should be an organization at the federal level that is responsible for mass shootings, particularly those in our schools. It clearly is a very complex and emotion laden subject and while I have many questions, I can offer few solutions. But, prevention of school shootings seem to be gathering momentum that hopefully will push our politicians in Washington to take some concrete steps to mitigate the problem. I applaud the efforts by the students of Parkland, Florida who were the targets of the shooting in their attempts to push for change. They make compelling advocates and I wish them well.
