    Then you would be wrong. This is an office complex with 95% DOD civilian workers and defense contract personnel. It is a fairly open post, although they do check ID badges at most gates, with a museum.

    Armed guards are present yet they simply look for ID, they do not pat down folks or search vehicles. It is likely that the shooter, as was the case at Fort Hood, was authorized to enter the facility.

    Thats as goofy a comment as would be one that used the incident to blame a gun for killing people. Lets let this thing play out first, huh?

    Raise your hand if when you heard the news the first thing you thought was Muslim. Not saying it is, but that was my first thought.
