    Army to institute background checks for visitors

    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."

    Collective punishment + prior restraint = AmeriKa.

    Take your state-issued ID and get a DoD ID because you use the dining/recreation facilities http://www.leemwr.com/

    Open to the general public Prices are no worse than off-base.

    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.

    stay safe.

    So they weren't military, but the point remained that the people doing the shootings wouldn't have been impacted by background checks.

    I completely agree, it's why I oppose background checks and prohibited persons.

    People that want to commit a crime with a gun are going to do no matter how illegal we try to make it.

    Only the people that desire to lead a law abiding life will be affected.

    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.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Maybe they should just make it illegal to murder people on base, you know, to end all murders on base. Heck, make ALL murder illegal in the U.S., THAT will fix everything.

    Give "axiom" a spin.
