for some time. In a curious way the realpolitik of mass murder has some hoping in fairyland belief such events won't happen again; others in a dreaded fatal resignation they must.

Mass murderers are a repulsuve, yet pitifully weak lot. If they see any sort of disruption in their plan for a self-centered yet transient immortality, they could be thwarted or stopped early. It is those disruptions, those things -- a detection device, an extra police officer, the single entrance -- which may work to lessen attacks and reduce casualties. We need to see what, if anything, works.
