I didn't say everyone should be carrying. We already had means for Commanders to order members who were having mental health issues to surrender all their weapons, even if they didn't live on base. Such precautions should still be taken. But there's no reason why most of us couldn't concealed carry.


What if somebody discovers, at some point, just being over there, killing Iraqis and Afghans, is a mental health issue? Alright. I know, I know. They were planning a landing at New York Harbor, to snatch our freedoms.

I don't know about that, having some dude with PTSD, suffering an Iraq or Afghanistan flashback, perhaps not your best line of defense? But maybe we could get back to our roots, have open carry and some entertaining gunfights in parking lots. But you could have a point, re: the PTSD hazard, as we did, at onetime, think liquored-up and armed was alright. Your concept is uniquely American, must admit.


Really? You have to be kidding. When I was in the Navy, I was not allowed to carry a weapon from my home to the Base because of dumb regulations. Yet when I reported for duty to stand my watch, I checked out an automatic rifle, a pistol and ammunition. Think about that for a minute and realize how stupid your post is.

Don't get your shorts in a sailor's knot. Military and concealed carry wasn't my idea, was rather replying to the concept. Would it help if I agreed with you PTSD is alright, as long as it's an automatic? What do you want somebody to say? As to saying things stupid, it's not fair of you to blame me, for wanting to fit in here! Take for instance you: how are we, otherwise, going to have a conversation, at all?

I doubt this event was accidental. Probably a pre-scheduled drill, with a dash of realism thrown in.


What are you basing that on? Or are you just making stuff up?

Based on this and some common sense:

...it was a scheduled exercise and a person witnessed the training and reported it as a shooter.


What kind of an exercise? An active shooter exercise? Why weren't bystanders warned of any exercise? Who is this person that made the 911 call and why wasn't he chewed-out by every last person in his chain of command?

How do you know he wasn't?

Because if this person wasn't warned his actions cannot be blamed. They wanted this incident to escalate.

Keep in mind this was social media, but if the post I just saw was accurate, this most certainly was NOT a SecFo AD while trying to get a door open. The pictures posted show five shots through the wall, at least one of which hit a printer in the room. According to the account, the shots came through the wall, no one ever entered the room, and it was another 30 minutes before anyone showed up to escort them out.
