After gunman Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a Muslim immigrant from Kuwait, allegedly shot and killed four Marines in Chattanooga, Tennessee, former NYPD detective Harry Houck said the military’s “gun-free zone” mindset has to change.
Speaking to CNN Newsroom, Houck said, “I’m a Marine. And this really is hitting me a little harder here than normal that [these Marines] weren’t able to protect themselves at the time this occurred.”
“We need people that are armed,” he added. He also said that even if that means getting armed guards, then so be it; something has to change.
Ask those who disagree whether they are anti-Constitution, anti-Marine, or pro-terrorist so you know where they’re coming from.
Anti-gunners think that guns should only be in the hands of police or military, so they have no reason to think Marines shouldn’t have guns.
Fort Dix. Fort Hood. Chattanooga recruiting station.
How many more?
Every time an attack on military personnel occurs, people are flabbergasted that the military didn’t have weapons to fight the attacker. Stop being flabbergasted every single time like it’s an unbelievable thing. It’s a very believable thing. It’s on purpose. People decided that it’s correct for the military be unarmed.
Decide something different.
Was this guy IS? Seems likely, at first glance, but we’ll see. Either way, he was a coward and so are most of those on his side. Let the good guys have guns. Then the cowards will be more hesitant to attack, and if they do they can be sent to hell more quickly.
