Why weren't they armed?

The article makes no mention of any arrests or suspects, yet states the obvious regarding hate crimes enhancements.

It also says the service members didn't want to be named due to DADT Don't Pursue. Does that mean they didn't file a police report, because that makes your name pretty public?

The article from channel 5 helps to make sense of this.

Personally, I think any black person in the United States who physically attacks gay people should be sentenced to a lifetime of slavery. It is just deserts for people who forget their own struggles and oppress others. Just as I feel Israelis who starve people and bulldoze their houses should be sentenced to live a a square mile ghetto and wear a yellow star for the rest of their lives.

Of course I'll be called a racist for this but I don't care.

the difference is...those DOING the attacking NEVER had to Literally FIGHT for thier RIGHTS....they LIVE OFF THE BACKS of those who did the fighting for them, so they have NO REAL appreciation for what they have to begin with.

On the bright side, at least DADT will be gone soon.

According to Stars & Stripes, Obama stated he expects to certify the repeal "in a matter of weeks, not months". That means the repeal should be final sometime in September (60 days after certification).

Wow, what a testament to a homosexualized/feminized military.
They can't even defend themselves in hand to hand combat against a few crack-heads.
LMAO
Can't wait till all the gays file lawsuits against their gay officers because of homophobia for ordering them into conflict resolution against an armed enemy.
It'll be a walk-over taking down this country without a fight.

Well yeah, and in the Bible, the word of our Loving God it says we should KILL homosexuals in Lev 20:13!

And Adulterers: Lev 20:10

And anybody who works on a Sunday: Ex 35:2 (Moses kills a gentile for this. Num 15:32-36.)

And anybody who ever curses at their parents: Lev 20:9, Ex 21:15

And for that matter your own child if they are being rebellious towards you! Deut 21:20-21

Focus on the Family values! True Biblical Values!

Glory!

Because the miltary is one of the most highly restricted organizations in America. These soldiers probably lived on post, and personally-owned firearms are kept locked up for those who live in the "barracks." It is highly illegal to have a POF in the barracks area. Even if these soldiers had concealed weapons permits, coming back on to Ft. Carson at the hour they would have returned would have meant no one was in the arms room to store their POFs. In other words, it's too much trouble to bother with, thanks to military regulations.
Of course, if they didn't live on post that might be a different matter, except that they were at a nightclub, where it is forbidden to carry a gun anyway.
