2 pistols, 200 rounds fired...that's about 10-20 magazine changes...4.5 inch Mil-Spec barrels...a base full of combat-hardened troops...44 people either killed or wounded...and 5 hours later, after having been confirmed DEAD 5 hours ago...the shooter is still alive. Do you smell a big pile of BS? I do.

Where did the guy get the guns? He bought them on his own outside of the military. It is usually way easier for military personnel to buy fire arms you know.
They say he fired 200+ rounds? Ok I go to the gun range and fire somewhere around 500 rounds each time. Usually not there for very long either. If this guy had more magazines ready loaded then this is nothing. I’m surprised there wasn’t even more rounds fired.
How did he get the guns on the base? Easy he was a MAJOR. They don’t check cars coming onto the base all the time. if its an officer they have it even easier. They normally only do this when they are at the highest level of security.
How could someone do this while there are 40,000+ military personnel around? You’re kidding right? do you think that all military personnel walk around armed 24/7? These soldiers were getting ready to ship out (filling out paper work, making sure their wills and life insurance was correct). So basically not paying attention to what’s going on around them. Bullets start flying its going to take a few moments for them to react and figure out where the shots are coming from. if the room they were in was small it would be like shooting fish in a barrel.
Him being in the military really has no bearing on this what so ever. look at how many people died at Virginia Tech. that guy wasn’t in the military and had no military training. Bet that was some conspiracy as well to get rid of the nasty college students.
Ok I’ve said my piece now let those of you who try to pick this apart do your best and have fun.

It's a distraction - my first response on hearing this is what are they pushing through Congress at the moment that capitol hill doesn't really want publicized until it's passed and signed.
That's all this kind of stuff is really or you wouldn't hear too much about it. Of course, all the inaccurate news when it first happened kept everyone in the country rapt with attention. Unfortunately, that attention is going in the wrong direction.
It's simple magical illusion - watch this hand while the other one is doing the trick.
