A Virginia bus service, which had a no-firearms policy, has reversed course after an altercation between two men resulted in one pulling a handgun and trying unsuccessfully to shoot the other.
After the incident, media reported that Valley Metro, which services Roanoke, Va., had a policy dictating a total prohibition on firearm carry. Kevin Price, a manager for Valley Metro, then clarified the policy, stating the ban was on the open carry of firearms, not concealed carry with a permit.
Roanoke and bus service officials are weighing their options and considering their next move. In the meantime, the company’s website, which formerly had a “Do’s and Don’ts” section that included the firearms prohibition, has been deleted and replaced with a notice that the site is “currently under reconstruction.”

“Critics don't define our honor,” Clarke says. “American police officers will never back down from their sworn duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America. The National Rifle Association fights for those very same rights.”
