Seattle Times letters to the editor

Texas district attorney and wife found dead

Guns don’t protect against guns

So much for the much-vaunted argument from gun-rights advocates that the best defense from a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. That didn’t prevent the shooting deaths on March 30 of Mike and Cynthia McLelland [“Texas district attorney, wife found dead at home,” News, seattletimes.com, March 30]. The former district attorney was one of the good guys with a gun.

McLelland, a 23-year Army veteran whose son was a police officer, began carrying a gun following a colleague’s shooting death in January of this year. His ownership, carrying and training in the use of a gun did not save him or his wife.

I hope all those who are arming up and believe that they and their families are protected by the fact that they have a gun will take into consideration that more guns are not necessarily the answer to this nation’s gun problem.

Terri McClelland, Kirkland
