    Despite the response, Haston admitted that it scares him "to death that something like this can happen."

    Angry David mcbeth advocates for strict gun control

    Well, based on his comments in the OP it sure seems like he does.

    How else would he suggest the NG deal with the possibility of another (actually true this time) workplace violence shooting?

    David - maybe next time you will do a better job of putting your thoughts into writing.

    stay safe.

    You know I don't support gun control .... I just found it goofy that a general does not anticipate attacks on a military base...and that the prospect "scares" him.

    I'll try to do better !

    Speaking of which, I was amazed at the security set up at the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico. They've got four rows of concrete barriers, a metal detector and X-ray machine (which was pushed over in the corner), gun buster signs and an armed LEO on duty 364 days per year (closed only on Christmas). The guy stands there at the desk jawing with the duty officer.

    What the heck? The place is a museum. THERE'S NOTHING THERE to steal - some old medals, a bunch of cases with old decorative swords and inoperable 1900s rifles.

    Yet you'd think they were in mortal fear of an attack or something. The place is all concrete and steel, a bunker. Maybe they're worried some disgruntled middle easterners might hijack the place, lol.

    Anyway, yeah, you gotta wonder what's going on in the 'military mind' to be completely caught off guard at an attack by a recruiter. Their whole training program is designed to mess with their people's minds, make them killers.
