Ok you gun banning nuts..where was the AR-15 all the news quickly jumped on and you zealots came out with your bullhorns. Truth was he didn't have one..but instead went with Biden's advice with a shotgun. This guy definitely had mental problems but it's the aftermath finger pointing crowd that is more crazier in my opinion.
Then I would have to argue that all security at all bases in the US are complacent. It's rate to actually see MPs at the gates checking IDs now. Usually it is a male DoD employee in their 60s+ just making sure everybody has ID to get on base. Some bases don't even have gate security. You can just drive on, do what you need to do, and then drive away.
That depends on where you are at. I can only discuss what I know. I have not met any Commanders, that I'm aware of. I've met a Captain, and my wife will be eligible for Lt. Commander about the same time we leave her current duty station, but no Commanders as of yet, that I'm aware of. I have been to a few formal non military attire functions, so it is possibly that I've met a Commander, but I had no way to identify their rank.
Why wasn't the NSA checking up on this guy..but no they were spying on Joe the plumber to see if he made calls outside the U.S. or was a Tea Party supporter. There were many earlier alerts and signs to see that this guy was crazy..but once again local and federal agencies dropped the ball. He should of never been issued a security clearance to begin with.
There was a thing on the computer the other day and for the life of me I cant find it. Had a pic of Biden ontop with his just buy a shotgun speach then had the pic of the navy yard shooter with a pic of a shotgun then under it with another pic of Biden holding his hand over his face.. I will keep looking to see if I can find it again.
