    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Sheriff's deputies fanned out across five neighborhoods in Philadelphia to hand out 1,000 free gun safety locks, while dispensing some advice on keeping children away from them. At the corner of 52nd and Market Streets one passerby, Symir, repeated the words of Philadelphia Sheriff Jewell Williams, "If you have a gun, you need a lock."

    "Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose," say the French - the more things change, the more they remain the same. So true of history. Just when we think we have resolved conflicts, they reappear in a new guise. World War I, the "war to end all wars" lasted four years and led to more than 18 million deaths.
