A few thoughts. 1) some of the respondants were from the Vietnam era where the draft was in place. So if your feet weren't flat and you were in. So I would say that today's volunteer force is better motivated/educated/responsible than your average yahoo in the 60's. 2) ask for someone from Ft. Hood to respond and let us know what they think!
Disarming "everyone" on military bases also disarms people like me that are consultants and own and carry firearms every day other than when I go on base. I am responsible and can be trusted to be in McDonalds during lunch when lots of kids are around but an deemed too much a threat to even leave my carry piece in the car while on base.
Either you are for freedom and liberty or you are not. There are always consequences when people are given those and expected to act responsibly. So punish those who misuse their God given rights and not those who would use them for the benefit of all!
