Man-Made Disaster Hits Fort Hood
An American, an Army major opens fire on an Army post, killing 13 people and wounding 30. Oh, and he's a Muslim. And he's a psychiatrist -- a well-educated man. No unwashed Taliban is he. One of the insane things here is that military bases are no-gun zones. Military personnel on base are just as defenseless as civilians in towns where guns are banned. These mass shootings almost always happen in areas where people are denied their human right of self-defense. This proves something I have contended for years. We are at war with an enemy who could be anywhere among us. If a U.S. Army officer can turn killer, who can we trust? We cannot have a reasonable expectation of safety ANYWHERE. That's why I go around armed.
