    It's illegal to carry a gun on Federal property even if you have a concealed weapons permit unless you are federal police, secret service, etc.

    How's that gun control in DC working for ya, gun haters?

    What difference would it have made in this case? These rules have been in place for many, many years. Access to firearms at a military facility is ALWAYS restricted. Active shooter teams were in the building within seven minutes.

    Ding, ding, ding, we have a liberal that is finally beginning to understand.

    All of the new anti-freedom gun proposals would not have prevented this or any of the other tragedies that have occurred.

    Nor would the laws you want in place. You still would have been required to give up your sidearm at the gate.

    "Suicide by cop. Cop-assisted suicide."

    That is a very real thing I'm sad to say. I feel sorry for any police that are involved in those scenarios.

    "Nor would the laws you want in place. You still would have been required to give up your sidearm at the gate."

    I want existing laws enforced.

    I wouldn't have to give up my side arm at the gate. I'm smart enough to not even go there with one.

    Just like when we had a transmitter on the tower at the BPA Ross facility here in Vancouver. The guards at the gate WILL NOT hold your weapon for you, they simply turn you away if you are armed.

    So, your rules wouldn't have made a difference, either.
