Jeffrey Horton of Terabyte Laboratories is the brilliant, driven and idealistic scientist responsible for the discovery of the Trigger. It was an accidental discovery: Horton was hoping to build the analogue of a laser for gravity. Instead, his prototype, when fired up for the first time, triggered all nearby explosive material. In that moment, an end to the power of the gun became feasible. In the future, a firearm - or a bomb - could be made powerless to harm the innocent.Karl Brohier, Horton's boss and a Nobel Prize winner, has to decide what to do with the Trigger. Brohier takes news of the Trigger direct to the White House.President Mark Breland, former star pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies, has a record of integrity and liberalism. He promises Horton and Brohier that the Trigger will be made available to the world. The Pentagon regards Breland's promise as wrong to the point of being treasonous. It involves disarming the military!show more
