    Sadly very true. The present NRA and the rich corporate club the ALEC ate all for it. I wonder why?

    There you go Tigger, blaming John Paul Jones again!!

    But, PAJ, you have hit the problem our “defense” and military have, the corporate takeover through contracting of Inteligence, Homeland Security, Defense, and yes, the Miltary! This problem was in the majority created by “conservatives” in Congress, but the “librals” do share a share of the blame. It all comes back to promising their local constituents a share of each pie, regardless the actual cost to the nation, in dollars, and actual “security”. Of course how much is pocketed by those legislators, either as campaign funding, or “other accounts”, is a huge amount, that real “persons” with second-class “personhood” thanks to SCOTUS, can’t begin to match.

    But the ‘toon has the simpletons’ down pat.

    The NAVY knew he was mentaly ill and did not inform the NICS. Since they did not inform the NICS, he passed the Brady Bill background check.

    The US Navy are MORONS for not doing ANYTHING!

    I presume that you have never been in the military, and therefore do not realize that the military has its own laws and justice system called “The uniform code of Military Justice.” Further, this system is not easily changed, and does not allow for a lot of new laws. I would think that especially applies to firearms, which are sort of a specialty of the military!!

    Tigger: once again good to see you HAVEN’T THE SLIGHTEST IDEA WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT! Yes, there are jobs on military posts, like with access to data, that DO require clearances, however there are TONS of jobs on military posts that require absolutely no clearances whatsoever. Yes, it does depend on the base, and in some cases where you might be cleared to enter, but you again are totally wrong in your ASSumptions.

    Just as an example, my son is retired military, and his security clearance is still “valid”, though he only goes to the nearby AFB to use the doctors and shopping. His “renter” has a job on the same post, and has absolutely no clearance whatsoever.

    Now, that we DO have a serious problem with contractors having clearances the shouldn’t have, like well, Snowden? Yes. But that “privatization” of jobs on bases started back in the ’60’s, it’s just reached absurd levels under programmatic changes under, mostly, Republican administrations trying to privatize ALL of “government”. (and triple or more all costs in the process, actually!)

    Hey, Stuart! The NRA didn’t give the shooter a SECRET clearance! Or didn’t you know that?

    Inadequate control.

    Comment very good except that Reagan is not president and has not been for some time. There was one 2 term Democrat Bill “Free Willy” Clinton and we are on our 2nd 2 term Democratic president Barak “Obozo” Obama.

    Mychyle: you might want to remove that comment and think it over.
    Also, I think it’s helpful to look at triggers first comment on this. We can see how he/she manufactures “facts” to prove whatever point he/she wants. Classic misinformation, distortion, distraction. Anything but clear, rational thought.

    Yes, we need more gun laws. Because laws like “Gun Free Zone” work so well. The shipyard is a “Gun Free Zone.”

    as easy as 1 2 3
    1]wash dc has the toughest gun control laws
    2] ship yard is a secure place the marines there have guns but no bullets]

    3] shooter got a pass because it would not be p c to deny him [see ft hood]

    if you are a drug cartel or a terrorist bho will give you a gun

    You people can hold up the NRA as a strawman all you want but they were not reponsible for giving a high security clearance to a man who was not only mentally disturbed, but had multiple run ins with the law. Someone in the navy dropped the ball.

    Tigger: for your “appreciation”, tonight NBC News announced the SAME PRIVATE COMPANY that granted Snowden his security clearance, did the outstanding job of checking out the Naval Shipyard shooter. Let’s hear it for MORE privatization in government, like contracts to Halliburton, to improve things! Right.

    Oddly enough, back in the days when the FBI did them, like for my brother, and my son, clearances were a lot harder to get, and more were rejected. Then along came Cheney: where his wife, on the board of Lockheed, had absolutely no influence in Lockheed securing “security jobs”, as well!
