Fort Hood Lesson Learned by Crazed Killer, Not by Those in Charge

Considering that right before it happened the FBI warned of Muslim plans to stage another Fort Hood–style massacre, it is surprising that the killer in the latest bloodbath at the massive Army base apparently has no Islamic background. Nonetheless, the lives lost were the result of the liberal authorities’ willful refusal to learn from experience:

An Iraq War veteran being treated for mental illness opened fire Wednesday on fellow service members at the Fort Hood military base, killing three people and wounding 16 before committing suicide at the same post where more than a dozen people were slain in a 2009 attack, authorities said. …

CBS News identified the gunman as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez. He is from Puerto Rico and joined the island’s National Guard in 1999.

The first Fort Hood shooting occurred when Nidal Malik Hasan, explicitly acting on behalf of Islam, took advantage of the insane policy that makes American troops sitting ducks on their own bases. Lopez, who was crazy enough to be under evaluation for post-traumatic stress syndrome despite evidently never having been in combat, was not so crazy that he couldn’t learn from Hasan’s example.

In contrast, the moonbats in charge learned nothing.

[Fort Hood senior officer Lt. Gen. Mark A.] Milley stated that carrying concealed weapons on the base was prohibited.

Like many military installations, Fort Hood is a “gun-free zone.” The policy was reportedly first issued in 1992 by former President George H.W. Bush and then reissued in 2011, according to The Blaze.

“Arming DoD personnel with firearms shall be limited and controlled. Qualified personnel shall be armed when required for assigned duties and there is reasonable expectation that DoD installations, property, or personnel lives or DoD assets will be jeopardized if personnel are not armed,” the 2011 directive states.

Thus Army personnel were reduced to hiding under their desks once the shooting started.

Fort Hood isn’t the only place this happens:

In September, a former Navy man opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard, leaving 13 people dead, including the gunman. After that shooting, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered the Pentagon to review security at all U.S. defense installations worldwide….

Asked Wednesday about security improvements in the wake of the shootings, Hagel said, “Obviously when we have these kinds of tragedies on our bases, something’s not working.”

If even Hagel can figure it out, it is obvious indeed. But he probably doesn’t understand what it is that doesn’t work, since that would require stepping outside the bubble of liberal ideology that allows fools to believe banning guns makes people safer.

    I’m thinking that the allowing of US military servicemen to be disarmed in order to ease their murders is just another tactic to demoralize them and condition them for re-entering civilian life. This way they are docile and conditioned like Skinner’s cats to urinate on themselves rather than take actions of self preservation or threat elimination.

    Gun-free zone? Open carry should be strongly encouraged on base once you’ve completed basic training. Imagine how many holes Nidal Hasan would have in him besides the ones he was born with? More to the point, the cowardly Hasan would not have attempted what he did.

    In the old days when you were issued a rifle, you kept it in the barracks, secured with a lock to which YOU had the key or combination. Now all the weapons are in the base armory, issued only BY ORDER.
    It doesn’t surprise me that it was one of our own that did this. During the Viet Nam war, we were told by Hollywood that “crazy” veterans would “bring the war home”. With veterans being made to serve four or five tours, it would seem that the present policy-makers WANT our solders to be shell-shocked wrecks.
    PS: “Shell-shock” isn’t about fear; it’s when your brain is actually messed up by high explosive concussion.

    That is very likely!

    If people look at all of these mass shootings that have been committed by those who were being treated by “mental health professionals” they might see a pattern. Many of these shooters were on mind altering drugs and my guess is that they had also been subjected to hypnotism.

    My advice to everyone is never, EVER, let anyone hypnotize you. The Bible says not to let anyone take control of your mind and I believe there is a very good reason for God telling us that.

    Wait, I don’t understand. The base was a gun-free zone. Signs were posted saying that it was a gun-free zone. And yet someone brought a gun onto the base? How is that possible? I thought the whole point of posting “no guns” signs was that they created a magic aura that prevented anyone from carrying a gun past them.
