Navy Yard Shooter(s) Relied On Gun Free Zones To Massacre Defenseless Personnel – The Examiner
While authorities are trying to piece together exactly what happened and who, if anyone besides dead named shooter Aaron Alexis was involved in today’s massacre at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., one fact is indisputable. The killer(s) took advantage of a “gun free zone” at not only the facility, but one that extends throughout Washington. D.C.
Security at the center utterly failed at stopping a murderer bent on killing defenseless personnel. And even acknowledging special security conditions at a military installation, in the absence of a special legal relationship the government has no duty to provide protection to people it prevents from protecting themselves, meaning there is no attendant liability should they fail to do so.
Add to this the draconian laws of the District that make merely buying a gun an exercise one could write a book about, as The Washington Times opinion page senior editor Emily Miller just did – and that is just for home defense. There are no provisions in the law for citizens to carry firearms, or to have them in their cars for protection on the trip to and from a workplace that forbids them, such as the Navy Yard.
While gun rights advocates could argue that “the supreme law of the land” does indeed provide for bearing arms regardless of D.C. edicts, anyone so much as possessing a spent casing – let alone live ammunition or a firearm – is setting themselves for a world of hurt. That is, unless they are a connected elite anti-gun “Authorized Journalist.”
As the confusing and often contradictory facts get unraveled, as more becomes known of the shooter(s), the motive(s), the timeline, the (unnoticed?) warning signs, and everything else that accompanies a breaking and unfolding story of this magnitude, a second fact also emerges that is also indisputable: the monopoly of violence fanatics are working themselves into full blood-dance/feeding frenzy mode.
And their black doll’s eyes are rolling over white about now…

When Did Military Bases Become ‘Gun-Free Zones’? – Big Peace
It hasn’t always been the case that only MPs can carry firearms on U.S. military bases. A mere twenty years ago, “gun free zones” made their way to these facilities under the watch of President Bill Clinton.
According to a Washington Times editorial written days after the Nov. 5, 2009 attack on soldiers at Fort Hood, one of Clinton’s “first acts upon taking office… was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases.”
Clinton’s actions birthed Army regulations “forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S. for personal protection.”
In other words, thanks to Clinton, citizens who join the military to use guns to defend liberty abroad cannot practice their constitutional right to keep and bear arms while on active duty at home.
As the Times editorial board put it: “Because of Mr. Clinton, terrorists would face more return fire if they attacked a Texas Wal-Mart than the gunman faced at Fort Hood.”
The same theme ran true at the Navy Yard in DC on September 16. Police were called after the shooter opened fired, and reports indicate it took approximately three to seven minutes for them to arrive. Each minute is an eternity when a lunatic with a weapon decides the “gun free zone” rules do not apply to him.
