Armed man shoots Seattle bus driver
Second Amendment woes
The attack on a Metro Transit bus driver brings gun laws to mind. [“Panic on buses, cops kill gunman,” page one, Aug. 13.]
The prevailing interpretation of the Second Amendment would dictate that the most appropriate solution, bearing in mind the words of the president of the National Rifle Association, “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” would be to arm everyone else on the bus.
Those who choose not to bear arms should have the option of being provided with (or providing their own) bulletproof vest.
Or consider alternate transportation.
Or stay at home.
These are small prices to pay for the freedom of living in America, land of the free and the armed.
