Opinion: A Statement on the Naval Yard Shooting Before the Libs Start their Anti-gun Rants

Today several people were shot at the Washington, D.C. Navy Yard.

Regardless of the identity of the shooter or his motives one thing about the place this occurred strikes a tone.

Just like Fort Hood this was a military installation, and, just like Fort Hood, it is a gun free zone.

And just to make that perfectly clear: there is no stricter and stronger gun control than a gun free zone.

Any military personnel aside from possibly some very specific watch standers would have been completely unarmed.

I know many are unaware that military personnel on military installations are not allowed to carry a weapon in any way with the exception of specific watch standers, and those kind of watch standers are few and do not exist in all buildings.

Yes, even our military are left as helpless as our children, having to wait for someone else with a gun to save them. Even when everyone already has training, they are not allowed to carry their own means of self-defense.

When I was in the service I stood door watch at the main office building for the submarine crews in Kings Bay, GA. None of us were armed. If a shooter had entered that building we would have been little more than targets.

When even our military, trained for combat, are disarmed and subject to shooting massacres like this it is tragic proof that no amount of gun control will protect the innocent, it will only empower the criminal.
