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!

I was surprised there were not armed MP's on base back in 2009, and they still have done nothing to fix that problem. If Military Bases are so Unarmed then these type of events will continue, when they could easily be avoided for the most part if there were armed MP's on Base. If trained weapons handlers such as the Military can't be armed, then who can??

We MUST protect our military and our bases in this time of terrorism and to take out people like these idiots at Fort Hood. Also as a 30 year veteran, the chain of command MUST evaluate and document behavior regardless of their race or religion. We must not bow down to political correctness over keeping & promoting those who shouldn't be serving.

It is tme to wliminate gun free zones that only stop law abiding citizens from protecting themselves. We are fooling our selves if we think gun free zones protect anybody.
