Liberal US lawmakers don't want soldiers to be safe

A Republican's proposal that US soldiers should be allowed to carry weapons on bases again was rejected:
Lawmakers on Sunday quickly rejected a Republican proposal that would allow military personnel to carry concealed weapons on bases — raised just days after the horrific Fort Hood base shooting that left four soldiers dead.

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Rep. Mike McCaul raised the controversial idea on “Fox News Sunday,” explaining that soldiers shouldn’t be defenseless on their own bases.

“We should be looking at the idea of senior leadership at these bases, give them the ability to carry a weapon,” the Texas Republican said.

“They defend us overseas and defend our freedom abroad, so the idea that they are defenseless when they come on our home bases, I think, Congress should be looking at that and having a discussion with the bases about what would be the best policy,” McCaul added.

But a number of other politicians claimed that putting guns in the hands soldiers on bases — which is currently forbidden in most circumstances under Department of Defense policy — might only lead to further violence.
All they're doing is insulting many honest military personnel who have no desire to hurt innocents and wish to defend other defenseless people even at home. This is going to have to continue being debated if army bases are to become safe again.
