In this video the msnbc reporter asks a survivor from the 2009 Fort Hood shootings if more guns or less guns was the answer to the Fort Hood shootings on Wednesday. Retired Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford responded that more guns was the answer.
Lunsford was shot 7 times in the 2009 Fort Hood shootings and realizes that had the soldiers at the base been armed they would have been able to stop the shooter before he could kill 3 and wound 16 on Wednesday.
Lunsford also points out in the interview that as soon as the military police with guns showed up the shooter quickly stopped shooting others and ended his own life. It was good guys with guns that ended the killing spree, so why not stop all future shootings by allowing the soldiers to carry their own firearms? Oh but that’s too logical for our anti-gun friends to understand.
Watch interview here:
A response time of 15 minutes is simply unacceptable at a military base in this country that trains the finest military in the world. We cannot continue to disarm our military here at home and take away their ability to protect themselves. Let’s demand from our lawmakers that a change is made to Fort Hood and every other military base in the US. I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of gun control taking more innocent lives.
