Lesson of Navy Yard shooting echoes lessons of Camp Liberty, Fort Hood

Sept. 17, 2013

The lesson of the Camp Liberty and Fort Hood shootings was that disarmed soldiers are just as vulnerable as anyone else to a spree shooter exploiting the fish-in-a-barrel opportunity of a “gun free zone.”

More details will emerge from the Navy Yard shooting, but we already know everything we need to know. The criminal justice system had the shooter in its control, but for whatever liberal impulses were at play that day, this dangerous man was released.

Maybe, like with many criminals, officials were waiting for him to do more serious harm to people and property before they looked up from their doughnuts and coffee and made an effort to keep US safe.

We also know that in addition to the Navy Yard being full of disarmed military personnel, it sits in a city with one of the tightest regimes of gun control in America.

That does not mean that Washington streets are immune from gun violence. It only means that the government of the District of Columbia has allied itself with the criminal elements to ensure victims cannot defend themselves.

Put another way, if the shooter, instead of rampaging inside walls and gates of the Navy Yard, went berserk up 8th Street SE towards Eastern Market or even more brazenly across the Anacostia River to that ward that takes its name from the river, he would have soon found himself surrounded by equally armed Americans—and put down.

On their last morning on earth, the Navy Yard dead went to work comforted in the lie that disarmed Americans are safer than armed Americans—and that all the security gates and armed guards would protect their lives.

If we truly respect their sacrifice and their families’ suffering, we will all have the courage to call out this lie and change the laws and regulations that consign Americans serving America to victimhood-in-waiting.

Pathetic. Pulling "one-hateys" 24/7. Wait till Hillary is the next President!!!
Do you think Obama is still going to trust Putin (who supplies Assad with weapons) to get rid of the chemical weapons after another "especially nasty" WMD was just unleashed the other day?

And what is Obama's move now? Even if Putin wants Assad to remain in power rather than al Qaeda, would you trust him?

And what if Assad is the one unleashing the WMDs and Putin and Assad are just testing Obama's resolve? Even worse, trying to lure him into a showdown?

Do you believe Putin is trying to become the new leading world power by his influence and allies in the Middle East?

Hurricane ObamaCare, the Democrat-Caused Disaster:
It’s not just costs that make it a disaster area.
Michael Cannon from Cato writes about a new book from David Goldhill, a Democrat, who has reexamined his belief in universal care after his experience with his father’s death convinced him that government healthcare killed his father.
“In 2007, David Goldhill’s father died from infections acquired in a hospital, one of more than two hundred thousand avoidable deaths per year caused by medical error,” says the publisher’s pitch for Catastrophic Care: How American Health Care Killed My Father--and How We Can Fix It.“The bill was enormous—and Medicare paid it.
These circumstances left Goldhill angry and determined to understand how world-class technology and personnel could coexist with such carelessness—and how a business that failed so miserably could be paid in full.”
Suffice to say the book isn’t kind to Obamacare or government run healthcare.
“[T]he frustrating reality is that despite more than sixty years of government efforts – representing the work of both political parties,” writes Goldhill,“we are moving further and further away from what we want.
Prices are higher,
more people are excluded from needed care,
more excess treatments are performed,
and more people die from preventable errors.”
It’s that “more people die from preventable errors” part that should have all of us concerned.
Preventable error is what the government is really good at.
It’s also what designates Obamacare as truly a man-caused disaster area, just like other natural disaster areas.
Why Republicans Are Starting to Love Health Reform

Turns out a lot of Republicans love Obamacare. Or at least, they like coverage for their kids, health-care rebates and a ban on denying coverage for preexisting conditions.

Since Virginia does not have partisan registration there is also no way to tell whether Seung-Hui Cho was a Democrat, but again because there is no partisan registration in the state we can say that the claim that he is a registered Democrat is FALSE.(Update: A more obvious point is that Cho was a resident alien, not a US citizen, so he was not eligible to vote in the US)

No, they're not doing their jobs you insufferable twit! They're wasting time and taxpayer money flogging a dead horse. Congress has gotten all the information that's out there and there's no evidence of any kind of cover-up of any kind. This is a blatantly partisan witch hunt whose only purpose is to damage Hillary Clinton for 2016. The Republicans are using taxpayer money to further their own partisan goals. Fortunately most of the American people aren't as stupid as you are.
Watergate took two and one-half years to unfold.

The truth about Benghazi will emerge.

Obama will throw Hillary under the bus if necessary, in fact maybe purposely to eliminate her as an opponent.

In the old days, they used to say that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality. When it comes to health insurance, it seems a liberal is a conservative who has been mugged by an illness.

Naval Shipyard shooting- Liberal Media refuses to give name or show picture of shooter therefore, we Conservatives know the guy either was a Muslim or is black.

When the Liberal Media refuses to identify criminal it is because the person is a Muslim(terrorism related) or black(racism related).

Also, Liberals are speculating it was a Tea Party mad at Obamacare, therefore the guy must really be an Obama voter.

We Conservatives know then fraud media very well.

What Does Aaron Alexis's Race Say About the Navy Yard Shooting?

A look at the data compiled by Mother Jones on mass shootings shows that 16 percent of the 67 mass shootings that have occurred since 1982 were committed by black shooters, including the alleged Navy Yard shooter, while 66 percent were committed by whites. Monday's shooting, and all the others that have occurred in the last 30 years, does tell a story—about guns and safety and violence in the US. But if you're looking at Aaron Alexis' skin color, you're missing the point.

We are not missing the point. You are hiding the point as all Liberals do!

If he would had being white you would not be looking at statistics but blaming the Tea Party.

Okay try to hear me out. Good morning! Here are my reasons that the Navy Yard shooting was a false flag event. 1) Minority gunman. By the shooter being a minority it is assumed that the whites will be on board for whatever changes need to be made to law. 2) gunman "legally" purchased the weapons. This closes the "loophole" that anyone can get a gun easily illegally. 3) Gunman has documented mental issues. Which means if we stop all "crazies" from getting guns than there will be no more of this violence, however the US Gov't also classifies 70% of its citizens as being mentally ill.
This FF event brought to you by the committee to abolish the 2nd Amendment.

Correct!

That is why only Conservatives should own guns!

Right now most Conservatives own guns for self-defense, while most Liberals own guns to settle grievances soon or later.
