“Gun control” at Ft. Hood aided and abetted Hasan

Much is being made of the political correctness that failed to prevent Muslim terrorist Major Nadal Hasan from turning on his fellow soldiers at Ft. Hood, and rightly so; but the political correctness that disarms soldiers on post made Hasan’s victims the sitting ducks they were. In “How ‘gun control’ aided and abetted Hasan (http://www NULL.wnd NULL.com/index NULL.php?fa=PAGE NULL.view&pageId=115985),” Col. John Eidsmoe and I argue that “gun-control” laws, whether at Ft. Hood, Virginia Tech, or elsewhere, disarm the law-abiding and empower the killers.  How many of the dead at Ft. Hood would still be alive today if one soldier or officer had a sidearm with which to fight back?

The policy of disarming our warriors, instituted by Pres. Clinton in 1993 (http://jneilschulman NULL.rationalreview NULL.com/2009/11/clinton-bush-gun-control-enabled-fort-hood-massacre/), suffers from the same logical fallacy as the pacifist mindset. Back in 1775, Revolutionary patriot and pamphleteer Thomas Paine explained (http://www NULL.thomaspaine NULL.org/Archives/def NULL.html) that the pacifist Quakers failed to account for the fallen nature of man:

Could the peaceable principle of the Quakers be universally established, arms and the art of war would be wholly extirpated: But we live not in a world of angels. … I am thus far a Quaker, that I would gladly agree with all the world to lay aside the use of arms, and settle matters by negotiation: but unless the whole will, the matter ends, and I take up my musket and thank Heaven He has put it in my power.

The men and women of the armed forces lay down their lives to defend ours, usually with firearms. The least we can do is let them exercise their God-given right to defend themselves, too.

    Gun control is people control. Or should I say an attempt at controling the common, God fearing, hard working, tax paying masses. Thank God you are NOT politically correct and I believe next to nothing of those who are pc. We the people who believe in, trust in and live for the one true God, creator of heaveans and earth and all that in them is and have also trusted in Jesus Christ as our savior and Lord will prevail. Great is He who is in us than he who is in the world.
    Keep proclaiming truth!!!

    Thank you for your service as a true citizen in this fragmented republic of ours. The ideas of conscience debate must continue as a republic not as a pure democracy.
    No concessions to lay down arms was implied under our constitution and the founding fathers would not have given in to such impish politics of engagement of words without carrying a big stick!
    The liberal nonsense of today will swing like a whiplash to sting personal freedoms so far out of line it will take a chiropractor to mash and crack the U.S. back in line.

    Gun control on a military base by military personnel is ignorant. Why was I not surprised to realize this ban came about during Clinton’s term? I would venture a guess that most soldiers are trained in firearm safety so are competent to be armed. If they had been armed my guess Hasmin would have been lucky to get off more than a couple of rounds. These deaths were preventable.

    i think that gun control should always be imposed at all times to reduce violence.:;”
