In response to yet more endless debates on a serious issue and problem

Some more kids died in a school. Guns were involved. Again. Both sides of the issue are getting out there sabres and rattling them. Including on Facebook and other social mediums. As usual I will be one of the folks in the middle. But of course nothing will change because nobody really offers any solutions beyond absolute measures that neither side will budge about. So the likelihood of a repeat of the problem will continue. History doesn't repeat itself because it is an unbreakable force but because we do not use it to our advantage. The answer is not in the extreme views. So it is not in "take all the guns away" and it is not in "give everybody guns". Both of these views do not move towards a solution. In fact they continue to get in the way of one. I am posting this just to share my observance of this issue, not to start a public debate on my page. That would be pointless. But people DO need to start looking for some kind of middle ground answers and it will probably show up as something neither side has even considered as an answer yet. Being myopic about an issue causes that kind of blindness.
