Tell Congress: ELIMINATE "Gun-Free Zones" at Military Bases

On April 2, 2014 a gunman opened fire at the Fort Hood Army Base in Killeen, Texas. This marks the second shooting at this military installment since November 2009 ...

It happened again… another shooting rampage in a gun-free zone.

On April 2, 2014 a gunman opened fire -- killing 3, injuring 16, and ultimately taking his own life -- at the Fort Hood Army Base in Killeen, Texas.

This marks the second shooting at this military installment since November 2009 when Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 and injured 30 others. 

While hideous acts of terror like these cannot always be prevented, one thing is certain: policies establishing military bases as “gun-free zones” must be reversed. 

It’s time to legalize defense for our armed forces members – it’s time our servicemen and women are permitted to responsibly carry on base!

Take action! Add your name below and send a no-cost message to your U.S. Representative and Senators urging them to eliminate gun-free zones at military bases!

Anyone who believes that a criminal will obey signs that say "gun free zone" is beyond delusional. All it is is a sign that say all law abiding citizens here are unarmed and not in a position to defend themselves.

Having served in the US Army for over 40 years and having to remain proficient with several types of firearm, not to mention the constant safety training that we received. It seems completely ludicrous that our military only depend on the military police for protection. The military police are very well trained but are like most law enforcement officers are never enough to cover all aspects of security. Not to mention all of the extra duties that these military professionals must contend with. Neither of these events would have happened if the people that are trained in defense had been armed. The cowards that did these acts know that their prey are unarmed. Time to make it right let the pros defend themselves!
