    An open letter to persons who may become mass shooters

    Of all the contributions to the debate on the horrific mass shootings (a debate which too often seems to go round in circles, with people taking up pre-conceived positions that reflect a polarized society), this open letter is one of the most heartfelt and unusual that I've seen.

    It's by Angaleena Presley (of the Pistol Annies), whose two acclaimed solo albums and tours have made her a favourite new Country artist over here. Her letter is published by The Bluegrass Situation, a leading Roots blog.

    Her approach is to explore the complex emotions of pain, fear and anger, in the hope that would-be or potential shooters can see beyond the issues that drive them to extreme actions, and realize the suffering of their victims, that none of us is truly alone, and that love can provide an alternative.
