yeabuddy: another sad day for america. another issue to turn into a left vs right, anti vs pro gun when in reality its just that we as a society are broken. no one benefits.


Yup.
It's broken.
It's getting weirder. We're trying to "lead the world!" but our own house isn't in order.

Felgraf: AngryDragon: And this shows how effective this policy is. It makes no sense that probably THE most trained force on the planet regarding firearms is not allowed to carry them. It's a political decision not a common sense one.

You know this because how?

You can't imagine non-political reasons they might like to know where every weapon on base is?


Because it was one of the first things Bill Clinton did when he assumed the Presidency, disarm soldiers on military bases.  Completely political.  It was never a problem before then.

This should be impossible.  Texas does not issue a CHL to someone with a criminal record.

I'm not a lawyer, but he could be convicted of 200 misdemeanors and still get a conceal-carry permit so long as he has no felonies.

No, the Texas law includes class A and class B misdemeanors.  About the only thing excluded is traffic offenses.


And C, D, E, and F misdemeanors, as in the majority of misdemeanors...

EbolaNYC: Why is it that in these military installations no one has a weapon? There's no armed security at all?

WTF man.


There's armed security at the gates, and on patrol, just like any local police force. Navy security responded to the scene within a couple minutes; one of the first shooting victims was Navy security. DC Metro PD was there in 7 minutes, followed by every cop in the galaxy.

When you have a hard perimeter, and everyone has supposedly passed a security check, you don't worry so much about having armed guards every six feet. But no, combat troops (what combat troops you would have at a staff command) aren't armed, because they're killers, not cops. They're not trained to respond to hostage situations. You arm them only when the enemy is in range.

Time to take away the cops guns

" Survellance video shows the gunman entered the NAVSEA building, at 1336 Isaac Hull Ave., with a shotgun, News4's Jackie Bensen reported. He shot a security officer in the head, killing him, and took his 9 mm pistol and a magazine of ammunition. The shooter then continued through the building, and seemed to target his victims, who were mostly on the third and fourth floors. D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies responded with active shooter teams, Bensen said. During that response, a MPD officer was shot in the leg. The gunman was then shot by a FBI hostage response team, Bensen said. According to what witnesses are telling investigators, by the time the shootings ended, the gunman was seen with a semiautomatic 9 mm pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle. Authorities are investigating whether the gunman took the D.C. police officers' rifle."

I used to do graphics for interactive course-ware for the Navy's AEGIS Combat System. Been here a fair number of times:

farm3.staticflickr.com

Even still, that was back in the late 80s/early 90s. When you have more than a couple events where people have shot up installations, you'd think they'd have changed things.

Hell, back then the worst I could ever expect is being approached by some KGB agent. I didn't deal with secret info, so there was really no risk of that, but there were people in the area who had been...

I eagerly await news of which well regulated militia he was member of so we can get to the bottom of this. The rest of the world thinks our gun laws and gun culture are crazy, and they are farking right.

Ironic that they don't let soldiers carry sidearms on a military installation isn't it?  The ultimate expression of a gun-free zone.

It's interesting that even the military sees the need for limits on when and where it's appropriate to carry weapons and yet people are fighting for the right to carry them everywhere out in public.

And this shows how effective this policy is.  It makes no sense that probably THE most trained force on the planet regarding firearms is not allowed to carry them.   It's a political decision not a common sense one.

The Commander in Chief, Bill Clinton when it was enacted in 1993.

I wouldn't go so far as to consider the Navy THE most trained force on the planet regarding firearms. I think most of them only fire them at basic training.


Yeah, but he said their on-base disarmament is a political decision and not a common sense one, so it must be true.  I bet every one of those people on that yard was expertly trained in close-quarters, urban combat scenarios, and would instantly work as a perfect team in such a situation if only the Navy had allowed them to be armed.  Stupid Navy!

Probably because it's a fact that guns cause more deaths from accidents/domestic fights than they do from stopping mass murders. The powers that be decide that it's a bad idea for even highly trained soldiers to have weapons 24/7 strapped to their sides.

LesserEvil: EbolaNYC: Why is it that in these military installations no one has a weapon? There's no armed security at all?

WTF man.

It's the navy.

A friend of the family said he once stood guard duty at a naval base in Italy when he was a sailor - and they gave him a wooden mockup of a rifle to carry.

Marines only guard important naval assets - we didn't even provide security at the Charleston Naval Base when I visited there on a few occasions (They were sailors in utilities, but they at least seemed to have real weapons) - and I believe that base had nuclear weapons on hand.


The real security is usually local, and often civilian contractors. In Italy, the Italians would guard the outside perimeter, with the Americans working the less dangerous gate inside. Marines have been so busy down range that they've been taken off their traditional role of guarding extremely high-security installations, and the Navy has created a professional specialty rating of security police (instead of giving any random sailor a weapon, they way they did when I was ship's guard force on a destroyer in the '80s).

In Iraq, inside the Green Zone, the security guards were private contractor types, most of them from South America. It was more useful to know Spanish than Arabic.

Into the blue again: Debeo Summa Credo: FLMountainMan: Let's get to what's important - is he white or black?  Will he be liberal or conservative?  I've got my tu quoques ready to launch.

It doesn't matter, the gun haters will exploit this tragedy to push their anti-gun agenda just like they do everytime a crazy person with a gun kills dozens of innocent people.

When will the gun grabbers learn that the wake of any gun created tragedy is NEVER the time to suggest more gun control? Rather, it is a time to heal and reflect upon how a better armed populace could prevent such occurrences.

Of course, when we happen to have a month where a gun caused massacre doesn't happen, that isn't the time to suggest more gun control either, because hey what's your problem with guns? A bunch of school kids or office workers haven't been killed in a gun-dependent slaughter in like six weeks. Relax.

MOAR GUNS!

Seriously though, on behalf of the sane population I would just like to thank you. You and your fellow gun nuts have won the debate. We will never be able to control the amount of guns in this country, you have mad it an all or nothing scenario. We thank you for yet another mass shooting.

/someone reset the clock please.


If Sideshow Bob hadn't had access to guns he probably just would have strapped on a dynamite vest and killed twice as many people. Crazy people are gonna kill, guns or no guns.

Although that being said, I don't trust 99% of my brothers in arms with personal firearms.

BUT, being in the Reserves we have a lot of police officers. They're legally allowed to carry outside of the gate but can't even bring their weapon on post. I'm in the process of becoming a cop in Maryland, I have to carry all the time so it's going to be a pain when going to drill and coming home.

Newsflash:  Contrary to the repeated assertions, NSA is a foreign intelligence agency and doesn't actually spy on Americans.  Also, I don't think anyone believes that CC cameras are intended to stop mass shootings, but they're useful for evidence after a crime has been committed.
