The Washington Post

Front-page news


What good news that a mass shooting was averted through a citizen tip and agile police work in Richmond on July 4.

This should have been a front-page article, but it was in the Local Digest in the July 7 Metro section [“Tip helped foil July 4 shooting, police say”].

This kind of citizen response is the best hope we have until our legislativ­e bodies finally ban assault weapons.
