Apparently the Ft. Hood Gunman II had a history of mental instability. It’s good to know a thing like that, and not to complain, but it would have been even better to know, oh, I don’t know, like before he murdered three people, wounded 16 others and then killed himself.
But thank you Army anyway for letting us know.
FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) — Unstable mental health may be a “fundamental, underlying cause” of a soldier’s shooting rampage at Fort Hood that left four people dead, though an argument with another service member likely preceded the attack, according to investigators.
Spc. Ivan Lopez turned his gun on himself after killing three people and wounding 16 others Wednesday at the sprawling Texas military base, where more than a dozen people were fatally shot by a soldier in 2009. An Army truck driver from Puerto Rico, Lopez was undergoing treatment for depression and anxiety while being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder, base officials said.

Of course there has already been a lot of discussion about guns in the wake of this latest shooting, which will happen anytime you give a libtard a microphone.
But let’s face it; Gun Free Zones are useless. We might as well issue coffee tables for faggy guys and antigun feminists to jump up on when an assailant brandishes a weapon; they will be every bit as effective as a GFZ and at least their panic tantrums won’t interfere with the brave citizens who decide to take action.
All gun laws are essentially a waste of time. Rolling 30’s Crips, deranged anarchists and radicalized Muslims don’t pay a whole lot of attention to them and neither should you.
Prevent a crime and do the time is the RG’s motto.
As far as the latest Ft. Hood shooting:
I am certainly not suggesting that every GI on a base be required to carry when on duty, but the idea that weapons are not ready for immediate use in an emergency is insane.
Weapons on base should be strictly controlled but accessible for use by those trained to use them at a moment’s notice. If living in a free society tells us anything it is that law enforcement rarely prevents crime; cops show up after people are dead.
The reason we have Gun Free Zones to begin with is because Democrats and antigun RINOs don’t trust us. These are the elitists like Dianne Feinstein who armed herself while attempting to disarm the rest of society.
Citizens who carry concealed handguns save lives and are overwhelmingly responsible with their weapons. One of the men who wrestled Jared Lee Loughner to the ground at the Gabby Gifford shooting was armed. He considered the situation too dangerous to bystanders to use his weapon so he heroically tackled the assailant.
Back to the military.
I have a problem with a military that doesn’t trust our recruits enough to arm them in emergencies.
These things say way more about our political leaders and military command structure than our soldiers, marines and sailors.
Our military protects us and it is damned sure time we protect them.
