It take a gun to stop a crazy with a gun and until someone gets there and locates the killer, the madman will continue to kill.
The FBI is now saying yesterday's shootings were caused by a lone gunman armed with a single shotgun. The murderer armed himself with the handgun from an armed security guard had shot but there was no AR-15 used as incorrectly reported.he s

Why didn’t Bush do something about this EO when he was President?
Greatly limited ROEs and disarmed on military bases.
Perhaps we should call our troops the the Disarmed Forces.
There were no shootings on military bases.
I don’t understand why there aren’t armed guards on military bases, it’s a frigging MILITARY BASE. Why aren’t there guns?
Their job involves weapons ALREADY, and we’re always told this is a NEW type of war in which there is no “front”, per se.
And so there they are —TARGETS.
And yet no way to defend us, indeed, no way even to defend THEMSELVES.
IT IS RIDICULOUS.
Do the feds still run that brothel they took over in the early 90's?
“Why didnt Bush do something about this EO when he was President?”
That would assume GWB disagreed with it.
Mass shootings only occur in gun-free zones.
BBBut they all had cell phones and were ferociously texting.
My guess is that they don’t want every cook or clerk typist who last qualified with a rifle or pistol in basic training to get the idea they’re rangers,grunts, SF,etc.
That being said, I’m not sure why those who are practiced cannot be armed while in uniform with their duty weapon.
“...its a frigging MILITARY BASE. Why arent there guns?”
The security guards had guns but either couldn’t or didn’t get a chance to use them effectively. We need to start giving base security body armor if they dont already have it. The freaking EPA is better armed than military bases.
They know exactly what to do.
I know of a National Guard base where all the guards carry M-16s, but no bullets.
Should instead be part of the active duty check-in when you get transfered in that you will attend all required concealed carry and long gun requirements for the state the base is on. You will then be required to purchase a sidearm with funding in a new allowance catagory just like housing allowance, clothing allowance, meal rations allowance. You will be required to carry at all times on the base, not required in your govt. housing, if applicable. But post an armed guard to accessways for govt housing to protect the unarmed members and their families.
I am reaching for the popcorn and waiting for the Barney Fife comments.
If this isn’t common sense gun legislation, I don’t know what is.
Which is exactly why Switzerland is/was a place nobody messes with. When the Germans tried to roll thru, the citizens promised to shoot every officer first. Every citizen had to prove proficciency with a rifle as their duty. Target practice every month as well if I recall correctly. Germany kept a safe distance.
Hijackings finally meant pilots got guns.
NOTICE ANY RECENT HIJACKINGS..?
The resistance to the change is because the left saw the next logical argument — “Hey, it worked for planes, so why not military bases? And then why not SOCIETY..?”
Armed pilots were the tiny leak in the dyke.
LET US SEE A GUSHING FLOOD..!
If FIXING this (doing away with gun free zones) isnt common sense gun legislation, I dont know what is. (for clarification)
