Protecting a military base (even at home) is a job for which weapons are needed. At the very least they shouldn't prohibit people from CCW for their own self-defense.

I guess maybe my complaint should more accurately read: Worse than the PC is the concept of "disarmed military personel."

While I'd choose another way, legally, with a lethal injection. It's an assigned task, and they aren't taking volunteers, I asked.

Booster seat to the noose. Perhaps, a weighted dip belt with an additional 50lbs to make things interesting. Pork skin burial shroud is a must.

I personally would enjoy the casual banter with Hasan as I prepped him for an existence exit.

I guess my point was more about how many people I hear that think the mil. just walks around base all day with weapons on them. True they should be able to CCW on base which they can't at this time. In reality however, I bet that the ratio of CCW licensed "Joes" vs. unlicensed is not far from the civilian population. This would mean that there would be very little difference when this sort of thing happens from when it happens off base. Hope you understand my point.

For the record, I also feel that "Joe's" should be allowed to CCW on base if they are legal in their state, or any state for that matter since it is Fed. land. That is a different thread topic though.

UH, Doc, I have this method for dealing with him in a sort of medical way that is so devious that I am loathe to describe it. If I get my wish, when I wish upon a star tonight, I'll get in touch with you.

Well, it could happen.

Sounds like we're actually on the same page. I can see pussified places like college campuses and San Francisco banning CCW, but it boggles the mind that military bases are among those places.
