    (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...

    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,"...

    “Good” is not the word I would use to describe the night descending on America, but some sort of night is falling on “we the people,” no doubt. Like many of you I am waiting on tenterhooks to hear what Obama has to say to the nation tonight. I imagine it will be something along the lines of: “Reports of workplace violence in California have come to my attention (like you, I read about it in the papers), so I am asking all patriotic citizens to watch your carbon footprint and turn in your guns. God bless America”—oooh I can’t...

    President Obama on Thursday said that FBI investigators still “don't know” what motivated the horrific mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., a day earlier. “At this stage we do not yet know why this terrible event occurred,” he said during a nationally televised press briefing. “We don’t know at this point the extent of their plans … or their motivations.” “It is possible that this is terrorist related but we don't know,” Obama added. “It is also possible that it was workplace related.”

    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...

    A Florida man told South Carolina police Monday that a dancer at a strip club struck him four times after he told her she needed to lose weight. Kyle Yeomans, 23, said the dancer, who worked at Derriere's Gentlemen's Club in Myrtle Beach, was "annoying him" and the dancer "kept trying to talk to him and he was tired of it," TV station WMBF reported. WMBF said Yeomans told the dancer that "she should go to the gym and lose weight," which is when she struck him. He told police that his intoxication level was an "11 out of 10"...

    In a preview of an interview with President Barack Obama set to air tomorrow on Philadelphia ABC affiliate WPVI, the president reacted to the WDBJ shooting earlier in the day with commentary on what he described as gun-related incidents. It breaks my heart every time you read about or hear about these kinds of incidents, Obama said. What we know, is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism.

    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.

Asa Hutchinson has authorized Arkansas National Guard Adjutant General Mark Berry to arm full-time military personnel. The governor also ordered the Arkansas flag to be flown at half-staff on Monday (July 20), according to a news release. Our hearts break at the news of another senseless act of violence and terror, this time out of Chattanooga, Governor Hutchinson said. Our prayers go out to all the families of the victims, especially the family of Staff Sgt. David Wyatt of Russellville, one of Arkansass own. He continued, I...

    The senator claims on the campaign trail that he was the reason the Fort Hood soldiers shot in a 2009 attack were awarded Purple Hearts. Why thats stretching the truth just a tad. Senator Ted Cruzs presidential stump speech electrifies conservative crowds with a cocktail of growls, whispers, warnings of impending doom, and at least one claim of personal accomplishment so powerful, it often brings many in the audience to their feet.

    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...
