Mass Shootings

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/02/fort-hood-shooting_n_5079690.html?icid=maing-grid7|main5|dl1|sec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D460666

Another mass shooting at Ft. Hood, Texas.  The initial reports are that a soldier suffering from mental illness murdered several people, injured several others and then killed himself.  He killed himself as soon as he was confronted by an armed Military Police Officer.

We need to address the issue of insane people shooting large groups of unarmed people in public places.  Shopping malls, universities, military bases, elementary schools, movie theaters, and other gun free zones have been targets of crazed madmen for decades.

We have tried to control the guns and it has failed miserably.  We need a new strategy.  We need to allow law abiding citizens to carry firearms to defend themselves.  None of our Constitutional rights apply only in our own homes.  Free speech, freedom of religion and the right to keep and bear arms don't end at your front door.  These insane killers nearly always kill themselves when confronted by an armed opponent; that's what the SGT Says.
