    This disturbed individual (disturbed means he iced himself AFTER harming other people instead of BEFORE) bought the murder weapon at the same shop that sold the murder weapon to Doctor Hasan back in 2009. What do you say, NRA?

    Nobody can do anything to prevent these sorts of massacres except buy and sell and trade more and more powerful weapons.

    Thank you. And now back to our regularly scheduled anti-healthcare programing.

    That was a sick comment Conelly. Who knows what is going through the minds of victims of PTSD? It’s sad that better care isn’t taken of the broken men and women returning from active service.

    What is sad is the victims (nor anyone else) has the right or ability to defend themselves on a US MILITARY base.

    The only “proven” factor in this latest mass killing is that it was done by a man with a gun. PTSD may or may not have been a factor, so let’s not jump to conclusions, lest we start a media binge that causes us to look at our veterans with suspicion. Keep in mind how the phrase “going postal” tainted the reputations of USPS workers – let’s not have the same smear applied to our veterans, dammit.

    The Fort Hood shooter bought his gun at the same Guns Galore Texas gun shop where the 2009 gunman purchased his, law enforcement sources told NBC

    Gun Control made his target an easy one. All of the mass shootings in the last 50 years (except the Gabby Giffords shooting) have happened in Gun Free Zones.

    @Zuhlamon

    That’s a good point. Thanks for bringing it up. I would hope we’d give service personnel more leeway / respect. But now that I think it through, I can see them getting treated like Vietnam Vets.

    A US Army base is a gun free zone? Coo-coo, coo-coo!

    Another satisfying week for gun violence advocates.

    I suspect mdavis4183 is telling us he likes the idea of free-exhange of gun fire. Perhaps jealous of the those in the old-west movie where the whole town shows up for a shoot out.

    Wow. Several people falsely claimed that military bases are not Gun Free Zones. Some of them even after it was pointed out that the others were wrong. You just can’t educate some people.

    From NewsHounds.us (“We watch FOX so you don’t have to”):
    .
    If you spent much time watching Fox News in the wake of the Fort Hood shootings, you almost surely heard “expert” after “expert” use the occasion to call for soldiers to be armed on base – and looser gun laws in general. But The O’Reilly Factor actually called on two military experts – and they pretty much demolished any argument for perpetually-armed soldiers…

    That’s what I saw too. I don’t go to NewsHounds anymore since they distort what Fox puts forth.
