“Before 1993, there were no mass shootings on U.S. military bases”

Just coincidence, I’m sure.

In 1993, most soldiers were stripped of their right to carry a weapon onto United States military bases effectively turning them into gun free zones.

While the directive was composed under big government progressive George H.W. Bush, it was implemented shortly after big government progressive Bill Clinton assumed office. This point is monotonous, as it is irrelevant.

NBC News in Washington listed shootings at U.S. military bases since 1994 in the wake of the most recent attack on Fort Hood, but did not delve into any that may have happened before 1993.

Why not?

The article failed to make the obvious connection that before 1993, mass shootings on United States military bases did not exist.

It is unconscionable that soldiers who are tasked with keeping Americans safe are thwarted by politicians from keeping themselves safe.

Well, yeah, but once we’re ALL disarmed, then we’ll all be safe, right? Except when we’re not.

  1. In 1987 my “right” to carry on post was to go straight from the gate to my company arms room where my privately owned gun would be locked up with the unit’s weapons.

    I could sign it out any time I could cajole the armorer to unlock the arms room, but I had to head straight to a range (if my post had one for personal weapon use) or off post with it.

    I notice that this policy well pre-dates 1993 and is within the realm of St Reagan.

    I think we might have to go all the way back to Truman to assign blame for disarming the troops on base.

  2. I retired in 1990, so the rules are a LOT different.
    I note with interest that legislators, congressional staffers, rent-a-cops, EPA employees, IRS agents and a host of others are able to carry pretty much anywhere, but active military can’t be trusted to have actual firearms onboard a military installation.
    I’m SO glad I retired in 1990. If I had waited just five more months, I’d have had BJ Clinton’s signature on my retirement letter!
