Steve Stockman to Introduce Bill Allowing Military Personnel to Carry on Bases


In the wake of the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard that left 13 dead including the shooter, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced plans to introduce a bill to allow military personnel to pack heat while on military bases.

Stockman told a crowd at the Liberty Political Action Conference on Friday night they were the first to hear about the bill, which he plans to introduce in the coming weeks. The legislation, sponsored by Stockman, will allow military personnel to not only carry, but also fire back in the event that an armed combatant opens fire on a military base.

"You know, it's really strange, and one of the things we're introducing which we'll, you'll be the first to hear this, is that, do you all find it odd that somebody can pull out a gun on a military base and our guys can't shoot back?" Stockman asked the crowd. "I don't know about you but I'm sitting there going, 'that is the strangest thing.' These are the guys that we entrust to protect our families. These are the guys that we entrust to protect our country. These are the guys who, by the way, we have trained. And what do we do? We say, 'excuse me, you can protect our nation but you better not protect yourselves.'"

Stockman continued, noting this is the second time in recent history someone has carried out a mass shooting on a military base — the first being Nidal Hasan, who shot and killed 13 and injured more than 30 others at Fort Hood in 2009.

  1. Stockman is right!

    For international policy we realize that to keep the enemy from attacking us we have to have weapons ready for immediate use in case of an attack or threat of an attack. This is Military Strategy 101. This is basic understanding of the way the world works.

    For Obama (Democrats) to say that the best way to keep our military bases safe is to "not have weapons ready for immediate use in case of an attack or threat of an attack" is to deny the most fundamental understanding of what it means to be safe. No one that has the ability to tie their own shoes is that stupid.

    The Democrats are not stupid. They know that disarming the military on military bases exposes everyone there to unnecessary danger from nuts and from our enemies. This is the reason that Obama and the Obama-cronies do not want military personnel armed and that is, also, simple logic.

    To believe otherwise is to admit to being stupid.

    Our current administration is anti-American. This is just one more way they are proving it. Do not think they are stupid. They are smart. They want to appear to be stupid so we do not call them what they are. They are traitors that deserve life in prison for aiding and abetting the enemy on our own soil and across the seas.
