What we do know is this is yet ANOTHER shooting that has happened in a “gun free zone.” Plastic signs protect nobody, plain and simple.
Next point I want to make is this is the tweet that made me realize something was happening.
This made my blood boil. I cannot explain the level of pissed off I hit when I realized some of our nations warriors were being told to “Hide and Hope” instead of protecting themselves and their brothers and sisters. “Shelter in place and wait for the trained people to show up.” Makes sense right? Now for the second time, on the same military base, we have had soldiers slaughtered. When will someone realize the hypocrisy of telling our military personnel we trust them with guns as long as they are in some other far away country when they are carrying them?
So far we have discussed two laws that are bullshit policies and need to go. You want to save lives? Stop creating victims. Just my $.02 on the legal side of this tragedy.
Another thing we know right now is that someone in Washington is thinking of the best way to use this tragedy to strip veterans of their Second Amendment rights. Just wait and see….
One last thing before I sign off. This is another instance where a shooter is met with resistance from a good guy with a gun and quickly offs themselves. According to news reports the shooter was engaged by a female MP and immediately turned his gun on himself. This seems to be a theme in the history of mass shootings and must be pointed out more. The only thing that stops bad guys with guns are good guys with guns.
As usual I will keep the same policy I have had regarding mass shooters since I started the blog and that is I will not use their names. I will not use my blog to add to the fame of any person who can commit such atrocious acts. Like the rest of the nation I send my thoughts and prayers out to the victims and their families.
