FORT HOOD: ACT II

                                             Not only overseas, but on our own bases also.


Once again we are reminded about how unprotected  military personnel on our own bases really are. Although this latest shooting was by a military man authorized to be on the base, had the rest of the place been full of armed and already trained personnel, the incident would have been stopped in short order.

Military personnel, having undergone basic - and often advanced - weapons training, should be allowed to carry, at the very least, sidearms while on our bases.

In my view, the military has also gotten far too casual about how wide open our bases are, allowing just about anybody to come and go as they please. And as far as depending on the local police to provide protection?

Police never show up until after a crime has been committed.

And as for making a military base a "weapons free" zone?

That's light years beyond stupid.

We've been shown that twice now at Fort Hood.

To alter a famous quote just a bit:

"Shoot me once, shame on you. Shoot me twice, shame on me."

Not allowing trained military personnel to open carry,
on a military base,
is Stupoder Than Blithering STUPID!
Especially with the freaking lefTARDs & libTARDs letting every foreigner that wants to, join the military.

And exactly how do local police have jurisdiction on a *federal* military installation?

Of course, if they actually trained our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines in fighting off aggression -- instead of all the mushy-headed "sensitivity" and "diversity" crap they get now -- these things wouldn't happen.

I agree with you of course.

I wonder if they are playing with mind control at that base.

Using soldiers for psychological tests.

Test that can go horribly awry.

Fort Hood Two - Just when you thought it was safe to come out and march.
