We often hear gun control activists say that only the police and military should have guns and no one else has the proper training to own and use a firearm. But then you have commanders like this that think that US soldiers who have some of the best firearms training in the world should not even be allowed to be armed.
It should make even the most ignorant among us sit up and take notice that maybe this gun control thing is about disarming all American citizens after all.
The commander in this video loses his head for a few moments when gun expert John Lott tries to correct him on his hyberbolized comments.
Lott was absolutely correct when he pointed out that the Fort Hood shooter had no opposition for 15 minutes because none of the soldiers (who were all trained in firearms) he faced actually had a firearm because of gun control laws that disarmed them.
Not only does this mean that the gunman had more opportunity to take innocent lives without facing opposition, but it also could have been the very reason he chose to carry out this deadly attack in the first place. No matter what made him snap, the fact of the matter is that he brought a gun onto the base which was already against the rules.
