Another Fort Hood Shooting

by Ryan on April 3, 2014

Yesterday, Ivan Lopez opened fire at the Fort Hood military base in Texas, killing three and wounding sixteen before killing himself.  Lopez was being treated for mental illness, perhaps PTSD, before the attack.  The motive behind this shooting is still trying to be understood at this time.

However, nearly five years after the first shooting at Fort Hood, how does a thing like this happen?  You’ll always have “lone wolves” and mentally deranged people who do not exhibit predictable behavior, but why is it that on a military base, no one can carry a gun unless they are an MP (military police)? I figure that the one place in America everyone might agree should NOT be a gun-free zone is a place designed to train people how to kill using guns and other devices!

In Killeen, right outside the base, a civilian can carry, but on the base trained soldiers cannot outside of very specific areas.  This Bush 41-era rule may have enabled a much higher body count.  We don’t know.  Just something to think about.  We’re still in the fact-finding phase at this point.

Nonetheless, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
