Authorities say the shooter at the Marine Corps base camp is no longer active

A Marine fatally shot a fellow service member at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina Tuesday, the base said in a statement. The shooting occurred at around 5:30 p.m.

The gunman, a Marine standing guard at the base’s main gate, discharged an M4 rifle, killing another guard.

Camp Lejeune’s provost marshal said the shooting is not thought to be an act of terrorism and that the shooter is no longer active.

Workplace violence. Surely there will be a dem fundraiser nearby in NC when Obama comes to drive by the memorial service.

What standards? Standards pretty much went out the window with the repeal of DADT

This will be just the reason Libs will use to not let our service men be armed on base!

Morale is at an all time low...low morale equals disciplinary problems, and suicides, for the weak of mind. This will not be fixed until such time as the DOD boots the women, and homosexuals out.

P.S. I love women, and I ain’t afraid of homos.

I wonder if the government is screwing with the minds of some of our most susceptible members. Experiments of some kind.

Nice. This woman made sure 21 years worth of Marines were properly paid and their records kept straight. But I guess there's no value in that, since a woman did it.

No, no, no--We just have better information and reporting. The frequency hasn't increased at all!!

Good evening.

What kind of incidents?

Shootings at Norfolk, the Navy yard in DC, Ft. Hood, etc.

The incidents may not have a common denominator, but the frequency is more than I have seen in five years.

5.56mm
