Ft. Hood.... I mean come on....
To hell with CC on post everyone should be required to qualify with and carry an M9 in a dropleg style holster at all times.


Hope they get all 3 suspects preferably with a bullet no need to pay for them to sit in prison.

Yep, there's more. The perp had an "anger fueled blackout" and shot up some vehicle tires.

UOTE]Alexis was arrested in Fort Worth in 2010 for discharging a firearm in city limits, police records show. Alexis told police he had fired the gun accidentally when he was cleaning it, according to a police report filed with the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney's Office. Charges were never filed.

Alexis was also arrested in Seattle in 2004, according to the Seattle Police Department, for "shooting out the tires of another man’s vehicle in what Alexis later described as an anger-fueled 'blackout.'"

Who ran his background check? The Three Stooges?[/QUOTE]

He's a black contractor. So many have to be hired no matter what the background is. Just the way it is. Not trying to be racist but a large percentage has to be black. Most of these kind of shooters are white crazies. Was surprised he was black.

There aren't many a bases or military complexes you can't get on as long as you have been checked out. If you think I can't get a clearance then shoot up a place your sadly very wrong. Most people could. Just the way it is. Shouldn't have to worry about this type of problem if America had the morals of 30-300 years ago. Now the communists (democrat) have every thing all screwed up.

And if you have the experience you say then you know I'm right. Shame on our own soil this crap happens. That we can agree on.

Free advice for all you gun free zone zone supporters.
Take it and shove it right up you a$$.
If you see me there, I'm packing. Got a problem with it. Take it up with whatever caliber I'm carrying.
There are two kinds of people. Gun owners and victims. Feel free to bet your life on which one I am.

I, too was surprised...in a John Lee Malvo kinda way.....


Good time to stop and remember the pitfalls of assumption....
Not all serial killers are white...or male!
Not all poor folks put themselves there...
Not all rich folks put themselves there...
Not all folks receiving Gov aid are black...
Not all terrorists are Muslim...
Not all radicals are Muslim...
Not all gun owners are republican...
Not all racism is white on black...
Not all Texans deserve that status!

The reason I say base security is a joke is because I have gotten through by flashing the wrong id before. When a vanpool of people enter only 1 needs an id.

I dont fault the personnel for the most part, some are far to complacent. The policy and the system in general are to fault. Either do security the right way or be lax but pretending everything is high security when there are gapping holes is stupid it only impedes people following the rules that dont stop anyone.

I'm not assuming anything about you.

I'm making generalities and simply stating my position that questioning the base security in a situation such as this is foolish.

When my youngest Brother was (ABGD) stationed at WPAFB in Dayton, Oh i would sometimes go up and visit him . I noticed on weekday mornings, gate security would just wave in anybody that had a military sticker on their car to keep the line moving. But if you came in after the morning rush they would stop you to check IDs of everybody in the vehicle...I bet the shooter had a sticker due to being in the reserves, And timed it right.
