ok heres the thing thats pissing me off

Sunday, November 8th, 2009


this crap going on with Nidal Malik Hasan.

im in the military. i am trained to deal with situations like this
every soldier whether a cook or finance guy knows 2 things that the military has taught us.

1. basic lifesaving techniques

2. properly using hand to hand combat and firearms

so tell me this.

theres 40,000 soldiers on fort hood. at least 40,000 rifles and handguns on fort hood.

we are the best fighting force in the world yet, local law enforcement are the first responders???

just like war we need civilians to do our job.

anyway thats not my arguement.
AS TRAINED PROFESSIONALS WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY PERSONNAL FIREARMS ON ANY POST.

i am a legal consealed carrier of a handgun and i bet anything i own that at least on person in that area was too.

sadly they couldnt do anything about what happened that day.

know i know “SUICIDE RATES ARE UP, YOUR ONLY GIVING SOLDIERS WAYS TO MAKE IT EASIER”

well that may be true but that could have also saved many lives on thursday and possibly prevent anymore problems like this again.

all im saying is
1. its the army we know how to shoot
2. the state gave me and others a license to carry a firearm
3. the army taught us to deal with things like this

its a shame that us soldiers cannot take care of eachother in situations like this.

i hope somebody with rank reads this and tries to chang the law to let us freely carry consealed firearms on military bases.

thank you for your time
