Yup! More workplace violence.

And the POTUS says he will get to the bottom of this. Heard that before. Expect nothing and maybe we'll be surprised.

If only someone there had been armed, this never would have happened. Clearly.

Bill Clintoon made military base gun free zone pandering to Brady.

Military personnel wear uniforms screaming target. That uniform used to include holstered weapon in a polished holster. Inspections routinely made sure every soldier was trained at the ready for battle at any moment.

Today in loony left world........only criminals can carry guns in gun free zones.

The murder capital of the USA is President Obama's old town he organized as community organizer. It is gun free zone. Look how well the organizational skills worked out in the past and present.

In college I dated the daughter of a coal miner. They were Catholic. Every Sunday the Coal miner put on his best suit and a gun belt with 2 highly decorate pistols his father left him to wear as dress up to church. I have to admit at first this was sorta shocking, but quickly learned most men his age dressed exactly the same way, and lots with Daddy's inherited gun.

these were great people, and the coal miners wife invited me every Sunday to family dinner even after breaking off with her daughter. She repeatedly told me she still possessed hope.

I graduated 1983 from the University of Colorado.

Can I tell you I personally walked into banks with a gun on a sling over my shoulder right up to the teller.

nobody even flinched. I never feared for safety even being the only blonde guy for miles. I stood out like flashing neon sign. Tall pale blond skinny dude. Can I tell you how much fun it was being considered exotic with the spanish chicks?

Crime was also non existent because criminals were smart enough to know they would immediately be capped.

say BS all you want, but you would be ignoring reality in lieu of fantasy.

Today we are living the result of lunacy.

Sorry, I'm apparently less skilled at communicating sarcasm than I might have hoped.

Let me out this in perspective for you:

"Fort Hood shooter Ivan Lopez was undergoing a variety of treatments for conditions including depression, anxiety and sleep disturbances, Army Secretary John McHugh told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. Prescribed drugs included Ambien, he said. Lopez was fully examined last month by a psychiatrist, McHugh said. There was no record that there was any sign he was likely to commit violence either against himself or others, "so the plan (going) forward was just to continue to monitor and treat him as deemed appropriate," he said."

Now...Unless you can see the future, how do you stop that?

My military family goes back to WWII. Every soldier on base has a side arm. Believe that.

No no. Stop the initial shooting from a clearly disturbed man.

Since the Clinton era most soldiers are unarmed while on North American Bases when not on a training range or area. Prior to that you coukd carry your side arm.

Several police stations are the same way. Weapons are checked and not carried everywhere.

No, they don't. All issued weapons are locked up in the armory except during times of authorized use.

Problem: he wasn't professionally diagnosed according to several sources I've read, although he was under treatment. It's possible he was playing the system.

"Lopez was being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder, but had not yet been diagnosed for the illness."

"Lopez, who was on medication, served four months in Iraq in 2011 and had "self-diagnosed" a traumatic brain injury. "He was not wounded in action, to our records," Milley said."

Too much speculation going on, and since medical records are not public records...it's all speculation. For all we know, he could have been flipping out just because his wife was cheating on him.
