■Class discussion: Has the president or any of his opponents presented a plausible plan for preventing an attack like the one in San Bernardino? Is there any way to stop attacks by a “lone wolf”? Do you think all the talk assailing Islam helps radicalize some people? Would defeating the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq stop terrorism? Why or why not? Have relaxed gun laws and growing gun sales reduced the number of shooting attacks in the United States? Does fear generated by mass shootings boost profits of gun makers and dealers?
