Making us safe, one joke at a time.
"Patience for a plan the Army says will keep you safe." Really? What are the numbers of visitors injuring or killing others and how many would have been stopped with background checks?
""I don't care for it much. I think what we do right now is ok. Just because you get a background check doesn't mean you're not going to have another nut that's going to break loose,” said Charlie Hughes, a retired civilian worker."

Yes, I know that you have to travel to/from disarmed which may be a deal breaker for some. But for others that want to mess with the notion of "we are making ourselves super-extra safe" it's your legitimate reason for being there.

Weren't all of the attackers military personnel?
US Navy Yard shooter - civilian WITH AN ID BADGE.
US Naval Base Norfolk shooter - civilian WITH AN ID BADGE.
Neither of these would be affected by the Army's visitor background checks because they already had badges/cards that allowed access. I do believe both civilians were prior military, though.
I wonder how soon before I will have to have a background check to buy a carton of milk at a convenience store with a debit card....

So they weren't military, but the point remained that the people doing the shootings wouldn't have been impacted by background checks.
Only the law abiding abide the law. It is always true. (Truism is a banal cliché to be avoided.)

Breaking positive laws doesn't necessarily make us not law abiding.
