Not enough armed staff, with the right mission.

Somebody at the Daily mail comments said; "Clinton took their arms away. President Trump, please fix this mess".

I would assume deadly force to stop a gate runner. Oh he didn't know the sign said STOP. It's all good. Now he is stopped.

Someone please explain why commissioned officers in the United States Armed Forces are not required to wear their sidearms while in uniform on duty.

>>! How do we let unknown vehicles storm the gate and lose them instantly?

More to the point, in what world do we tell people in the military to ‘run’ or ‘hide’?

Run, hide, fight? How can you effectively fight when the head shed has fully disarmed you?

I know of a base where the gate MPs have M16s, but are issued no bullets.

Recently had an idiot drive through the gate at our naval base. He was chased across the base to the other gate. The barriers, built into the street, popped up and his stolen car crashed, sitting on top of it. He jumped out and started shooting and security killed him. He asked how to get to the base at the gas station before he stole the car.

It’s the California effect, here in Los Angeles they tell you to run and hide in a closet so the coroner can come collect your body afterwards.

You bet your a$$ if this was the Naval Weapons Station,Pt Loma, Kings Bay, or Groton, driver would be worm food right now. Military does a good job at protecting hardware and a crappy job of protecting service members. Wake TFU.

Did they have anybody in particular in mind to fight with or just randomly fight with anyone you see?

Aside from having armed guards, it used to be standard for a patrol truck to be manned at the gate to facilitate tracking/stopping as necessary.

I wish Patton were alive today. I’d love to hear his comment on that little gem.
