There was another shooting at Fort Hood this week, bringing to light once again gun control advocates' ill-conceived ideas of ‘gun free zones’. Believe it or not, military bases are ‘gun free zones’. Believe it or not, the highly trained individuals who are trained to fight wars and protect the United States of America aren’t allowed to protect themselves and their families while on a military base. Psychotic gun control advocates are already calling for more gun control but it’s their gun control that enable more deaths at this gun free zone to happen in the first place.
‘Gun Free Zones’ are magnets for criminals who seek to inflict the most damage when committing a heinous crime. They know that law-abiding citizens will indeed obey the law and not bring guns into gun free zones. Yet gun control advocates continue to fight for outrageous policies like this that get people killed. Had troops been allowed to carry on Fort Hood, less people would have been injured or murdered. Waiting for an MP (military police) to get to the scene is much like someone waiting for 911 to get to their home – seconds count.
The morons at the astroturfing front group for Nanny Bloomberg’s ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’ made the following statement:
“Moms’ hearts sunk again today as we learned the news of another shooting at Fort Hood. The victims and their families are in our thoughts and prayers right now,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. “We send our soldiers into the line of fire, but we don’t expect that battleground to be here at home, as it was again today. While we don’t know all of the facts, we do know that preventable gun deaths are a public health epidemic, and mothers across the country are more committed than ever to doing what we can to end it, once and for all.”
It is because of people like them that the Fort Hood shooting occurred and our troops were unable to defend themselves. Not only do these psychotic ‘paid’ women want gun free zones everywhere, they want to double-down on taking away guns from the very law-abiding citizens like those on the base who could have protected themselves. It is illogical, emotional ‘thinking’ like those of Mom’s Demand and other gun control lunatics that aid in gun crimes. Criminals love these people because they help criminals more easily prey on victims.
So while gun control advocates are pushing to disarm more Americans, criminals are rubbing their hands together hoping that more legislators like those in New Hampshire and Connecticut are backing them. Criminals are just hoping that legislators will take more guns out of law-abiding citizens’ hands to leave them unprotected and ripe for crime. As proven over and over again, ‘gun free zones’ and gun control advocates’ ideas, do nothing but get people killed.
