    Apparently 1 is reported dead and 14 injured.

    So the question begs, should guns be taken away from the military?

    So any gues as to who did this? Perhaps a fundatmentalist Christian? A disguntled Amish farm hand? Who could it be?

    The gunman has been identified as Ivan Lopez, a US Army soldier, who
    has been described as a 'white male'. He committed suicide.

    Maybe we should let people in the military carry guns so that there will be no shootings on military bases.

    Personally, I think there should be laws against shooting people in cold blood, that should do the trick.

    "The gunman on Wednesday killed three army personnel before turning
    the gun on himself, authorities said."

    Of all the people who want fewer guns in the public, not one would place a sign on their home as a gun free zone. The mere chance that a homeowner might be armed is enough to make most burglars look to unoccupied homes.

    Most random shootings happen where the shooter is relatively certain his victims will not shoot back.

    Now that's just crazy talk.

    The only people who should have guns are ones that are evil. The state should take guns away from everyone else.

    Trivia.

    Ft Hood is one of the largest military bases in the world. Whose side would it support if Texas seceded?

    Ft Hood is in Texas.

    Ivan Lopez was a white Hispanic. His weapons were civilian pistols.

    EDIT Thx Duchess for correction.
