About the Book

Mass slaughter on school grounds, in theaters, in churches, and in shopping malls may be the most serious and complex problem in this nationís history. Solving the problem will take careful and deliberate thought, but thinking is hard work and there are no easy solutions. Those few who do propose ways to reduce the epidemic of gun violence are met with a fusillade of emotions on why their ideas wonít work.

Retired CIA analyst Dave Cariens gives the reader hands-on suggestions and strategies to curb gun violence. He presents evidence showing where practical application of these strategies has worked in communities all over the country.

Recognizing the stalemate in Washington, this is a guide to action at the local level.

About The Author

David served in the CIA for 31 years before retiring in 1997. During his career he was a political analyst for 22 years in the Directorate of Intelligence, specializing in Balkan affairs. In this capacity he produced finished intelligence for all levels of the U.S. government, from the President to working level counterparts throughout the Community. He has designed intelligence analysis/writing courses and taught them throughout the Intelligence Community.

He has given writing workshops at the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts (IALEIA) in Alexandria in 2005, in Mexico City in 2006, in Vancouver, Canada in April, 2007, and in Boston in 2008. David presented a similar writing workshop at the Law Enforcement Intelligence Unitís national meeting in Tempe, Arizona in June 2006. He has conducted intelligence analysis training for the Criminal Intelligence Service of Canada and for the Canadian police.

On January 16, 2002, tragedy struck David and his family. Angela Dales, the mother of Davidís grandchild, was shot and killed on campus at the Appalachian School of Law by another student. The book, A Question of Accountability: The Murder of Angela Dales is a record of events that occurred both before and after the shootings. It is Davidís hope that this book will help to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.
