    Fort Hood is a gun free Zone!

    I will not go on Fort Hood or other military installations because deny me the right to protect myself by carrying my Gock concelaed.

    Many may not know that Fort Hood and all military installations are gun free zones. No soldier of citizen is allowed to carry a concealed handgun on post.

    The reasoning is to make it safer.

    As is normal for a gun free zone, it becomes a prime target for a massacre.

    History shows us that massacres and mass killings never happen in Police stations, gun stores or other places where everyone is armed. The mass killings always seem to occur in the false safety of a gun free zone.

    Safe to feel like a helpless puss. Liberalism is indeed a mental disorder.

    Unfortunately not all of us have that option, if we want to keep our jobs, If I'm working Stateside, chances are I'm on a Military base (I was on Killeen this past Mon/Tue and heading to Ft Sill this Sunday)(It I'm out of country, I'm in Africa. Try taking a handgun there!). I could try check my gun, but no guarantee that it would arrive safe. I work for an airline and don't trust airlines.

    So, I practice situational awareness. At home, play and especially at work when I can not control my surroundings.

    All of us do have that option. The question is which is more important? Physical security or financial security?

    You do have that option. It merely has costs that are higher than you are willing to pay to exercise it.

    the fact is that these massacres don't happen at police stations or gunshops.

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/05/08/virginia.shooting/index.html Officer slain in Virginia police station shooting

    I had to google one :happy0001:... why is it all these shootings linked to Virginia... we got Virginia Tech, Hasaan from Va, and this one I googled...

    reality yes, alot of the people are targeting largely "gun free zones" and alot are killing themselves when confronted by the first armed respondent.

    They happen, they just don't last as long.

    For the 5 years I was active duty, my firearms sat in the arms room locked in my cases. If I got a chance to go the MWR range once or twice a year it was lucky. If you live off post you can generally keep them in a safe, in your house or apartment. Tons of rules for on base housing outside of the barracks as well. After I got out, it was strange getting into shooting regularily again. But once I got back into it, I could'nt believe how much I missed it.
