On December 14, 2012, a man entered an elementary school in Newtown, CT, and killed twenty kindergarten students and six adults. Since Columbine in April 1999, there have been thirty-one school shootings in America and fourteen in the rest of the world combined. The Sandy Hook tragedy is the second deadliest mass shooting since thirty-two died at Virginia Tech in April 2007. This horrific incident is sure to reignite the dysfunctional discourse about gun control versus Second Amendment Rights. We have heard and engaged in this ad nauseam.  Now it is time for responsible citizens and responsible political leaders to forego their long held positions and confront the reality of a severe problem festering in our society. As Martin Luther King, Jr. said in his 1963 Eulogy for Martyred Children: "We must not be concerned merely about who murdered them, but about the system, the philosophy, the way of life that produced these murders."
