Default Military carry on base

Hey guys, this latest Fort Hood shooting has pissed me off. Why do we not allow our military personnel to carry firearms on base? If you could, sign the petition on the link below. Let's get their attention and allow our military members the opportunity to defend themselves.

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/allow-unconditional-carry-firearms-all-active-duty-military-personnel-base/NYhFlzm0

Also, share this link any way you know how. Once it hits 150 signatures it'll become public. Tell your friends and family, and have them tell all their friends.

Franklin

Thank you so much. It's just a absolutely ridiculous rule that creates victims. The news agencies are reporting that it took 15 minutes for the MPs to arrive at the scene, and as soon as one did the SOB took himself out. If someone had been carrying, it would have ended in seconds. Instead, 3 people had to die.

I hate to say it, but this will NEVER happen. I agree that carry should be allowed, but it wont happen. It's crazy, that we train every single military member to handle a firearm safely, but then don't allow them to carry.



Also, it won't let me sign it.



AND... the Obama Administration, the same one that BLATANTLY ignores the Constitution, will never listen to this, even if every single person in America signs it.

I know that the chances are slim to none, but they will be none if we don't try.

Forget it, it's never gonna happen.

The military has the strictest regulations when it comes to loaded service weapons. Note I said service weapons--meaning officially issued and authorized firearms. Excluding military police, personnel on sentry duty are rarely permitted loaded weapons or a mag in the well, even in potentially hostile areas (see Beirut bombing, 1983). I've seen sentries required to have red wooden blocks inserted into the mag wells of their rifles.

Given the military's paranoia about arming its own members with authorized weapons and its penchant for restrictive ROE, (not to mention uniform regs!), it'll be a cold day in hell when they permit personal sidearms.

It was 20 years ago when the Military started this not allowed to carry concealed bullcrap so it wasnt that long ago and they did it because Clinton pushed it. This kid that did this shooting the other day was in the WTB (Warrior Transition Battalion) which is basically a nice way of saying your so ****ed up we have to retrain you for civilian life battalion. My wife deals with these guys daily she told me how one guy told her he wanted to drink a gallon of bleach(She reported it to her clinic manager and nothing was done. I am scared for her because a lot of these guys in the WTB are really psychologically screwed up and instead of doing what the military used to do which was medically chapter board them out of the military which if done properly would ensure they were compensated monthly by the VA and would have free medical treatment for the disability. Now they keep them around and teach them stuff to control rage and crap and these guys have free reign to go wherever basically. Now don't get me wrong a lot of good Soldiers are in WTB for legitimate medical reasons like loss of limbs or TBI, but the psych cases should be processed out as fast as possible and handed over to civilian psychological professionals.

I'm shocked too... I know that this is probably not going to get anywhere, but I feel better knowing that I'm at least trying. I've got a friend that lives 2 blocks away from where the shootings happened. He or his family could have been a victim. I refuse to just stand by and watch more people die.
