Ft. Hood's Lesson: Soldiers Need Guns Too!

Excerpted from the article, "The Folly of Unilateral Disarmament" at

"When Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan started shooting up the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, Pfc. Marquest Smith dove under a desk. A.P. reports that 'he lay low for several minutes, waiting for the shooter to run out of ammunition and wishing he, too, had a gun.'

"Neither Smith nor the other victims of Hasan’s assault had guns because soldiers on military bases within the United States generally are not allowed to carry them. Last week’s shootings, which killed 13 people and wounded more than 30, demonstrated once again the folly of 'gun-free zones,' which attract and assist people bent on mass murder instead of deterring them."
