    Nice post, Mike. You are absolutely correct. All it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to sit idly by doing nothing. The entire video reminds me of most of the elements of the last post (death of the ADA).

    The bus represents our careers. We have hopped on and basically want to get from point A to point B with few bumps and hassles. Sure, we know the roads could be bad and there may be some rough spots along the way, but we ride along with the sometimes incorrect assumption that this will be a smooth journey.

    The gun represents the ADA. It is basically an entity with potentially huge power, but it depends on who is wielding it. In the right hands, it can provide safety, security, and defense. In the wrong hands,it is disastrous.

    The perp represents all of the third party influences like government, insurance lobbies, and the like. They have taken control of the gun, and now are pointing it in our faces. The video ends on a positive note. But if collectively we decide to overpower the perp and take back control of the gun so it may again be used for good, the perp ends up suing the passengers, the bus company, and the gun manufacturer for “injury and damages” (read collusion and anti-trust).

    And so we sit idly by. You know how that story ends. Keep fighting the good fight.

    Good for these people for taking action, I hope I would react the same way if I ever found myself in that position.
