Solving Problems?

I know that trying to solve a problem begets others, but we (should) start somewhere:
  • Hurricanes. When low pressure zones emerge, can we create a low/high pressure high/low  temperature zone far away from population centers and draw away the damage?
  • Hindu-Muslim Confrontation:  Can Pakistan and India merge?
  • School Shooting:  Should each gun and bullet be wireless and location enabled so they can be shut off when they are close to population centers like malls, schools, etc.?

The school shooting point is kind of interesting because guns are no more than fancy tubes with a hammer and nail. Really you can't regulate something that simple to manufacture, the key is rather to actually have adequate mental health facilities in the US, and also don't put the name or face of the killer in the news, make the story as boring as possible etc.

Somehow the UK regulates guns successfully.

Here is an article giving an explanation why banning guns would be much easier than banning drugs.

Vash: Alas, media flows where it puddles.

Aram: This paper seems to be about underground markets. We also need a solution for overt markets.
