    (CNSNews.com) - "I've been around guns all my life. I know how to use them, and arming our people on our military bases and allowing them to carry concealed, privately owned weapons -- I do not recommend that as a force protection," Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley told Congress on Thursday. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) asked Milley what the Army is doing to provide force protection at military bases and facilities in the United States, following last summer's attack on a Marine recruiting center and a Navy Reserve facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that killed four Marines and one...

    HESSTON, Kan. A workplace shooting in Hesston, about 35 miles north of Wichita, has left four to seven people dead and injured as many as 20, according to Harvey County Sheriff T. Walton.

    EXCERPT: Noel Aguilar was killed by Los Angeles County deputies Albert Murad and Jose Ruiz in 2014 who claimed that they shot him after he tried to grab one of their guns. They also alleged Aguilar had a loaded weapon. Now footage of the incident, dropped off anonymously at the attorney's office for the suspect's family, appears to show the two officers shooting Aguilar while he was lying face down on the ground with his hands cuffed behind him. Attorney for the family, Humberto Guizar, said the video is 'clear evidence of an execution... Guizar also claims footage shows one...

    NBC News has learned that San Bernardino shooters Syed Farook and Tashfeen Malik spent at least a year preparing for their terror attack, practicing at a local gun range and making financial plans for their family after their deaths. Two sources said Farook and Malik had practiced their shooting skills at a Riverside, California-area gun range for a year or more before last Wednesday's attack on a holiday office party. They killed 14 people and wounded 21 more with firearms at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino.

    More than six years after a Muslim army major shot dead 13 people at Fort Hood, President Obama on Sunday night - for what may be the first time - publicly identified it as a terrorist attack. In his primetime Oval Office address on the threat of terrorism in the wake of last week's attack in San Bernardino, California, Obama said the threat had evolved in the years since 9/11. "As we've become better at preventing complex attacks like 9/11, terrorists turn to less complicated acts of violence like the mass shootings that are all too common in our society,"...

    When the Redlands Tea Party Patriots objected to the resettling of Syrian Muslim migrants in their community, CAIR accused them of "paranoia and phobia is rooted in a combination of ignorance and bigotry." But "paranoia and phobia" are the modern condition that the free world has found itself living in. Islamic terrorism can strike anytime and anywhere from a Paris concert hall to a San Bernardino County facility where disabled children were being helped. It's ignorance to ignore that and bigotry to defend it. "What will be done to ensure the safety of our community? Our biggest concern is the...

    The nations highest military court has affirmed the conviction and death sentence for a University of California, Davis, graduate who admitted killing two fellow U.S. soldiers at the start of the Iraq War. In a closely split decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces rejected claims by Los Angeles native Hasan K. Akbar that his original defense team was ineffective. Akbar argued at trial that he was mentally ill when he killed two and wounded 14 in the March 2003 attack in Kuwait.

    The Obama administration has finally acknowledged that those hurt and killed in the 2009 Fort Hood shootings were victims of terrorismand not workplace violence, as it was previously described. But while formal recognition of that is set for Friday, when victims will receive the Purple Heart, it may only be symbolic. Fox News has learned as part of its ongoing investigation of the 2009 terrorist attack that the military, at least in one case, is still denying benefits for injuries sustained in the attack.I think it's almost unheard of for someone to receive the Purple Heart but not have their...

    Fort Hood did not have a system in place that could have anticipated a deadly rampage last April that left four soldiers dead and 16 wounded, according to a U.S. Army report released Friday. There were no clear warnings that Spc. Ivan Lopez would go on a two-block shooting spree before killing himself on April 2, the report released Friday concluded. It also said Lopezs supervisors would have had difficulty recognizing any personal problems leading up to the attack. The report also found that no single factor prompted the incident, despite Army investigators previous findings that Lopez had been in...

    The victims of the 2009 Fort Hood shooting that left 13 dead and more than 30 wounded moved closer Friday to receiving the Purple Hearts many say they are due. Congress passed a defense policy bill Friday evening that includes a provision making victims of the attacks at the Texas Army post eligible for the Purple Heart. The award given to military personnel wounded in battle also offers increased retirement benefits. The Department of Defense has denied the award to Fort Hood shooting victims, calling the November 2009 attack an act of workplace violence, not terrorism. That distinction has angered...

    Victims of the Fort Hood shooting will soon be eligible to receive the Purple Heart, with Congress pushing ahead with a policy change that would officially recognize domestic terrorism as an issue, rather than the workplace violence designation the Obama administration had used. The issue has been contentious since the 2009 attack, with victims and their family members saying Army Maj. Nidal Hasans shooting spree was clearly linked to the broader war on terror that the U.S. is fighting overseas.

The incident occurred Monday morning in a strip mall located in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, about 40 km. southeast of Montreal.

One individual familiar with the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity in advance of an official Saudi statement, said the attack was a workplace dispute related to the firing of the alleged shooter and was not terrorism-related. The identities of the Americans and suspected attacker were not immediately released, but the State Department said the Americans worked for Vinnell Arabia, a U.S.-based contractor with deep ties in...

    Remember when President Obama tried to push a gun-control package through Congress after the Newtown massacre? And Congress voted down every piece of legislation, even the extremely popular ones? And consequently the gun-control bills did not become laws, because that's how lawmaking works? It was a few months ago.
