US Marine kills two colleagues at Quantico base

Did a search didn't see this yet

Put it here since I am sure the discussion will be just the like the last shooting incident


US Marine kills two colleagues at Quantico base

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013...tico-base?lite


Following the anti-gunner logic in this forum, I assume the solution is we should ban "assault weapons" from our military personnel now??



or maybe this military school should have had a 24 hour armed MP on duty?

or maybe someone should have just kept it in their pants...

We should ban assault weapons from US Mil---

Ok, maybe not the weapons, but the sodas they drink.

Re: US Marine kills two colleagues at Quantico base

The premise of this thread is dumb.

Preemptive overreaction.

The title should have been: Armed Marine takes out gunman; prevents further deaths.

I wonder if it was suicide. We had one case on my ship here in San Diego the day before the deployment to Desert Shield. The thing is (at least it used to be) guns are very hard to come by on a Navy ship. It's not like the army where people were issued their own. There was one .45 not locked up and it was carried by the security person on watch. In my ship's case the guy who shot himself was actually on watch.

It's not like you take it home with you at the end of the day.

I understand but you still have a weapon you are assigned and have daily access to. That is not the case for 99% of the Navy.

You don't have daily access to it. All weapons are kept locked in the armory. You can only get them when you go out in the field - and are given no ammo - or to the range - where you are given ammo once you arrive there. You can't just go check it out like a library book.

I guess I more thinking of soldiers assigned to bases in the Afghanistan or Iraq. Regardless they are much easier for any soldier to get than a sailor assigned to a ship.
