    A SOLDIER? If that's not gun control run amuck, then what is. DC and NYC have the strictest gun laws in the country, and the most shootings. Here's another example of what letting people carry could have prevented.
    gun free zones are a candy store for murderers

    sort of like the gun haters on the threads blaming the NRA, the Second Amendment, or the demise of the Clinton Gun Ban for the murders in Arizona?

    this incident should cause our military to reconsider its approach in dealing with those soldiers who seek CO status to avoid combat
    here is an excellent read: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/06/us/06suspect.html
    Thanks for the well reasoned post. Some on the left are principled such as yourself.

    It's illegal, in the military, for a soldier to be a member of the Nazi Party. It should be equally illegal for a soldier to announce his Islamist sympathies.

    Again, I wanna ask some of them in here, if you thinks Islam and Muslims are such a threat to all of you, whats your "solution" do that threat hmmm?
    By that logic, it would be OK for a soldier to be a member of the KKK.

    Onward Christian soldiers. Can atheists serve in your military?

    Should the 10,000 Muslims serving in the military be asked to resign? Do they get honorable discharges?

    Sure they can.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    i was unaware that there was any regulation which prohibited military personnel from being members of the kkk. do you have a cite to show that kkk membership would be a violation of the regs
