    But what if you were to know whether one is a sicko and is twice as more likely to re-offend than average due to low activity in the anterior cingulate cortex?

    If you think so, what are the comparative rates of intentional homicides with guns on military bases and among the general public in the US?

    Cute, but stupid. And willfully so - you know better. It's not anti-military to recognize that those of us inside it have given up our freedoms in order to protect others'.

    Among comparable communities, my bet would be they would be rather higher. You can't really compare "general pop" to "on-base" directly without filtering the first to ensure an apples-to-apples. After all, just because we have strict gun control, it doesn't make us Chicago. Which, of course, is a perfectly safe city where no one is ever killed with guns, since they are pretty much impossible to legally own there.

    Are you saying that is a bad thing?

    I think it makes excellent sense to only let authorized people carry weapons.

    You mean like they screen those who enter the military, a background check to get in. And even more screening to become an MP or an armed guard. A very good idea!

    it is what it is. I would say in this instance, it was a foolish decision.

    as one of the people who is thus left unprotected, I disagree.

    Hey, if you want to just authorize all military personnel on base with exceptions for those with psy/legal issues etc, I'm fine with that.

    I think the gun control measure that makes the most sense is the one employed by the military since the 1990s where only authorized people are allowed to carry weapons on base in the US.

    You're diving into psychological diagnoses. Naturally we are speaking of relatively sane people in this discussion. I understand that this is a physical cause of possible psychological disfunction, however, it still boils down to psychological disfunction. If we have the observation time of a person, who most likely is an inmate to receive this type of observation, I would have to reassess my opinion of that. Honestly, I haven't thought enough about it to give you one right now.
