Fort Bliss on lockdown, that's all it says right now
(Excerpt) Read more at foxnews.com ...
On post, or across the border?
That’ll be interesting to hear.
Ft. Bliss in El Paso was home to ADA troops and the Army Sergeants Major Academy, last I heard.
Something said about a convenience store on Fort Bliss, according to FOX.
Another anti-military jihad?
My son-in-law trained at Ft. Bliss before his deployment in 2008.
Lord, protect our troops and all innocent parties.
Oh no not again..
I wish they would arm our heroes so they can shoot back..
Twitter is saying murder/suicide at a Burger King. no verification
Ugh. Murder/suicide sounds like a spouse caught cheating.
First Armored Division is moving there.
90% of the time that's exactly what happens. Do you remember the murders at Ft Bragg a few years past? The media of course zeroed in on PTSD bla bla bla.....
Anti-Gun Advocate Greg Nickels Appointment to UN and Gun Rights Policy Conference in San Francisco
By Bob Price
The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) expressed deep concern about the recent appointment of former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels by the Obama Administration to the United Nations. Nickels is being appointed as an alternate representative to the United Nations.
According to CCRKBA, Nichols is a founding member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns and previously authored Seattles failed attempt to override the Washington State firearms preemption statute. Nichols was sworn in on Wednesday to help represent the United States in the UN Assembly.
CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said While he was Seattles mayor, Greg Nickels supported every anti-gun scheme put forth by Washington CeaseFire, the Northwests most active gun prohibition lobby.
Nickels is a gun ban proponent, he continued, so his appointment as an alternate to the UN is a clear signal of Barack Obamas intention to rubber stamp the UNs global gun ban agenda. We had to sue Nickels while he was still Seattles mayor to overturn his illegal city parks gun ban. Now he gets to push his anti-gun philosophy on a world scale. It hardly seems a coincidence that Nickels has been appointed by the Obama administration at a time when the UN is considering treaties and initiatives that pose a serious threat to the Second Amendment. The Obama admistration is being watched closely by gun rights groups such as CCKBRA, the NRA and the 2nd Amendment Foundation. It is believed they will use some form of a treaty with the UN as a means to bypass the 2nd Amendment guarantees of gun ownership in America.
On September 24th through 26th, the CCRKBA and the 2nd Amendment Foundation will host their annual Gun Rights Policy Conference in San Francisco, CA. Gun owners from across the nation will gather in the city with some of the most restrictive gun regulations in the country to discuss how to protect gun rights for all Americans.
The November 2nd election is very important for the protection of gun rights. Get out and vote! And make certain your friends who are of like mind are registered and informed!

Hey, hey, this is total nonsense. EVERYONE knows you can’t carry a gun on post unless you’re an MP!
It may be a store NEAR the base so the base is on stand down to be cautious. We don’t know.
Well... happening in a stop-n-rob changes things a little. Robbery gone south?
