Gun Free Zones

The recent murder of five Marines at a recruiting station is an excellent example of how our War on Terrorism has failed. It is also an excellent example of how liberal firearms policies and wishful thinking are getting Americans killed every day.

That Marine Corp recruiting station was a gun free zone.  There is a sign to that effect on the door of the office, surrounded by over a dozen bullet holes, fired by someone who was not stopped by sign on the door.  A criminal, madman, or terrorist with a gun is only stopped by a good person with a gun.

I think during basic training every soldier should get about three days of handgun, use of force training, not unlike that given to security guards and police, and then have their ID endorsed for CCW out of uniform and open carry in uniform, then it applies everywhere.  I think this would help to save lives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
