What are your thoughts of Military bases not allowing their soldiers to OC or CC while on base?
One of the higher uppers said "The base is our home. We have no need to have our soldiers armed while they're home. That's just silly. Do you need to be armed while you're out commuting and visiting with your friends in your neighborhood?"
I personally find this silly. Why can't a soldier, who is a very well trained individual who has been taught firearm safety and procedures, be able to lawfully carry while on base?
If bases allowed their soldiers to carry, the Ft. Hood incident may not have been as severe as it was. If the soldiers were armed, then who knows, maybe there wouldn't have been as many causalities and injuries if some of the present soldiers were armed.
Remember, these are men and women who go through top of the line training, and undergo criminal background checks. They know how and when to operate a weapon.
Apparently Law Enforcement are the only ones who may be armed while on base. It just doesn't make any sense to me.
They should have the same rights as us.
