The fact that the guy's a Major is really surprising, to me.
How many years do you serve (generally) before you can attain the rank of Major?
Rather than jumping into a ridiculous rant about the evil coverup that you think will happen, how about you sit back and watch what actually happens?
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Further, even if everyone at the the sight were armed, 30 people could be shot in a few seconds.
It also appears the the shooter was a soldier himself, and FOX just published the main (dead) shooter's name. It is almost certainly a Muslim name. This suggests certain obvious possibilities.

They just reported that the shooter was a base mental health specialist...Crazy.
FNC's Bret Baer reports Maj. Hasan was a mental health professional.
You wouldn't want everyone armed in this case, because it would make it difficult to tell who the perp is.
