Another case of work place violence? Maybe we should put a stop to work places. The lyin’ king is doin’ a pretty good job with that. I’m sure he’ll be broadcasting a statement well before any pertinent facts are known. Prayers up!

“All personnel enact active shooter protocols immediately.”

When I first read that, I figured it meant, "Grab your guns and go kill this ahole."

But then I thought that maybe, in an Obama military, it means, "Crawl under your desk and tuck your head between your knees."

If the government would just ban all guns these things wouldn’t happen.

Ft Lee is pretty much a paperwork/training type of post with no combat units at all.

Per my nephew who is stationed there, the perp has been caught and the lockdown has been lifted.

After rereading this post, I want to apologize if it offends anyone in the military. I meant it as a cut against the type of rules of engagement and societal handcuffs we’ve seen this administration and others place on our soliders — slamming the bureacracy, not the soldiers. I know 99% of our actuall military soldiers are good, decent men and women who risk their lives to preserve what little freedom we have left.

We may not have security or sovereignty but at least we have inclusion and tolerance.

That's something.....right?

Not good. One of the biggest gun-free victim zones in the state, if nothing has changed since Fort Hood, and I don’t think it has.

No, “All personnel enact active shooter protocols immediately.” is the military version of the 1950s schools’ “Okay, children, we need to duck and cover.” in response to the potential for nuclear attacks on the United States.

I remember hearing my father, a World War II combat veteran referring to the latter protocol as “Tuck your head between your legs and kiss your @$$ goodbye.” protocol. This active shooter protocol is much the same type of protocol.

FYI

The Islamic terrorist training camp in Red House, Virginia, is only about 100 miles from Fort lee, VA.

Not implying anything......I’m just sayin’...

I saw nothing wrong with what you wrote. I read it as an indictment of Obama, not the men and women in uniform.

So there IS a perp.

I want to know all about him or her.

Especially if he has a swarthy complexion and an odd name.

That ship sailed years ago. In the 1970s we weren’t allowed to carry/keep our assigned weapons and ammunition with us when not on an active range or duty that required a weapon. Off duty your personal weapons were maintained in the armory. That was on a Marine Corps base.

I work in downtown Richmond. There have been a fair number of helicopters landing at VCU Health System hospital in the last hour. I don’t know if they are related to the incident at Ft. Lee or the multiple accidents on I-95 this morning. I can’t really tell from my vantage point.

Tonight, the MSM will tell us that Private Mohammad Al-Tazani was not affiliated with any terror groups. And I just made that name up to make a point.
