    Come one, McCoy – military bases are not “gun free” zones. If you’re going to attempt political commentary, at least make it accurate.

    I think he means that “No Guns” may be carried onto the base.

    No guns except by the MPs. Even if they were all armed, however, that would not stop the shooting. Surprise is the most important weapon of the mass shooter, especially those who have no intention of surviving. Shoot others and shoot self before anyone has a chance to react.

    It means the Military police are not armed.They have to go get their guns after the crap hits the fan.Why do you think the county and state cops went on the base ?The MP’s were not armed.

    Freedom to carry protective weapons would definitely cut down on the numbers of dead unarmed victims.
    What good is an armed MP or Policeman if they are not at the scene when the shooting begins??? Someone with a loaded gun is needed at the first shot of a mass killer.
    -
    Self-defense using personal weapons easily at hand is even approved by God in the Bible….David and Saul were warriors and defenders of the People of God in the midst of enemies!
    -
    America was founded by immigrants who came and brought defensive weapons and defended themselves from attackers.
    In spite of some men misusing weapons, “gun control” meaning the public cannot legally own guns and ammo is national suicide. We have laws and courts for single killings in the category of murder.
    -
    Leftists would be okay with a requirement for each homeowner mandated to post a “Gun Free” sign at the door!

    Except for the Rep. Gifford they have all been gun free zones.

    The Archie Bunker defense – just pass out the pistols and nobody gets hurt. Just as asinine an idea as this toon.

    This nation has a shamefully high homicide rate, principally due to the availability of handguns and the laws allowing people to carry them so many places. We need to repeal the Second Amendment and institute sensible gun reform. I know, it sounds impossible, but so does anything worth doing the first time it’s proposed.

    Here’s an excerpt from Defense Department policy on carrying firearms:

    The authorization to carry firearms shall be issued only to qualified personnel when there is a reasonable expectation that life or DoD assets will be jeopardized if firearms are not carried. Evaluation of the necessity to carry a firearm shall be made considering this expectation weighed against the possible consequences of accidental or indiscriminate use of firearms. DoD personnel regularly engaged in law enforcement or security duties shall be armed

    It is now well known that military installations are “gun free zones,” where criminals or terrorists can run rampant and virtually unopposed for at least ten minutes and perhaps as long as an hour before facing opposition, killing and injuring servicemen disarmed by politicians.

    The flip side of that coin is the ease with which people die in petty squabbles and machismic grandstanding when everyone has a sidearm just a muscle twitch and limbic fury reach away.

    There’s a good reason why mass shooters typically choose gun-free zones like schools and military bases over gun shows and firing ranges.

    Golly, Joad, sorry your feelings are hurt. We don’t hate you, but really… everybody needs to be armed with multiple layers of guns?
    .
    Anyway, Bill-O got something he didn’t expect when he called on military experts to support the meme about troops needing to be armed on base.

    If everyone had guns and shooting started it would be a confusing mess. I imagine people would be shot indescriminatly in a panic. Having a gun does not mean you are safe from stray bullets and ricochets. But at least they will have an all important gun with them.

    19 people were shot because of one nutjob. To whine and say that if all the military personnel were armed there would be constant shooting is preposterous. Do the police do that? No. Try using that brain that you’re supposed to be proud of.
