Sitting ducks

The leading headline in The Spokesman-Review, “Spokane Schools won’t arm officers (Dec. 18),” alerts the bad guys that Spokane schools are sitting ducks. Bad guys are cowards who search for gun-free zones to carry out their despicable deeds.

Examples of recent mass shootings in gun-free zones include Sandy Hook, the center in San Bernardino, movie theaters, and Paris. What a difference one good guy with a gun might have made. My idea of gun control is to arm and train every responsible man and woman (after thorough background checks).
