“MSNBC military analyst and retired colonel Jack Jacobs pushed back against the conservative claim that all soldiers should be armed on U.S. military bases in a contentious head-to-head interview alongside pro-gun researcher John Lott.
“Right-wing media have rushed to blame restrictions on the ability of soldiers to carry sidearms on military bases for the April 2 mass shooting at Fort Hood.
“But military veterans and base commanders, including Fort Hood’s own commanding officer, have said that calls to expand access to firearms on bases are flawed…”
Sigh. Why do we sit around and argue about guns while ignoring the societal ‘norms’ that create people who want to shoot up places?
