    So the Navy cannot defend itself from a shooter?

    Not if they don't allow them to carry loaded guns.

    The Navy cannot use guns. But civilians can. Reversed is it not?

    The navy yard had two layars of security, the fact that the shooter got past these two lines of security before starting his rampage means this was someone familiar with the bases security measures

    The local news just reported 12 dead, and that the gunman they killed was an employee whose "status had changed."

    Disgruntled employee?

    Right now, the gunman responsible has not been identified. Indeed, CBS and NBC retracted early reports about the gunman's identity.

    Firstly, I'd just like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with those injured today and with the families of those who needlessly lost their lives just attending to their jobs.

    What I do find disconcerting, however, is our need, reflected in our wall-to-wall media coverage, to witness in the minute these acts of mad-men and the destruction they cause. It reminds me of a thread on DP a few weeks back asking the question "would you watch a good-news channel" - based on today's coverage of this event, I'd have to conclude this is the type of coverage we as a society seem to crave. I wonder if it's possible that if we didn't "glorify" these events fewer people would commit such crimes.

    I think it is more likely to be one of those Christians you here so much about. I understand there are lots of them in the U.S.

    There is even a possibility, outside possibility I admit, that it is some crazy person that has no strong religious affiliation.
    geesh.



    How many incidents of gunmen shooting at multiple victims has happened in the U.S. ober that last 10 years?
    How many of the perpatrators have been Muslim?


    I can hardly believe that someone would write a post like yours. I am continually amazed on this site.
    Look at network news. I've seen questions about terrorism all morning and several references to the Fort Hood shooting and Nidal Hasan. I'm not saying that the gunman were Muslim. I will say that it's the first thing I thought of.

    Let's put it this way, I would not be surprised if it was Muslim extremism, and I would be surprised if it wasn't.
