Levin: “How Come Obama Did Not Mention Fort Hood?

~ Foreword ~
I have to mention again – if that woman principal had been ARMED with a gun – she could have stopped the carnage with one shot – at the front door – before the kids were killed. Instead, she was UNarmed and she used her body to try to stop the shooter – the shooter who had a gun and was using it. I don’t call that heroism – I call it stupidty.

This is why we should have armed CCH’s in every school and public place. An ARMED citizen can stop a killer who is using a gun or some other weapon. The *killers* seek out places that are NO GUN ZONES as they KNOW they can kill for at least 10 minutes before cops will arrive and even then they can go on for a short time.

As to the question below – we all KNOW why the FRAUD didn’t mention Ft. Hood – the killer in that case was a MUSLIM who is still awaiting trial because of his BEARD – to shave it is against his religious beliefs. He had NO problem being clean shaven when he was killing Americans.

OVER the weekend, the president was speaking and, really, when he got to his politics it was just stomach turning. There he is, in the middle of that little town … and he named four instances in where there were, what, massacres? But he left one out. I immediately realized — and my brother emailed me too — what happened to Fort Hood? How come he didn’t mention Fort Hood? How come Obama did not mention Fort Hood where 13 human beings were slaughtered and there were several survivors. Because, ladies and gentlemen, first of all, Fort Hood is a military enclave, it’s a base. You can’t have more control than that.

Number two, they had all kinds of rules of who can carry weapons and who can’t there. And fortunately, a lot of men and women in uniform aren’t allowed to carry weapons unless they’re on duty. All kinds of gun control on that base.

But, number three, it had nothing to do with gun control. It had everything to do with political correctness run amok, costing the lives of 13 human beings. CBS News, July 19, 2012 (Levin quotes):

The FBI was too concerned about political correctness and did not launch an investigation into a man who was later charged with killing 13 people in the 2009 attack in Fort Hood, Texas, despite significant warning signs that he was an Islamic extremist bent on killing civilians, according to a lawmaker briefed on the new report.

In emails to a known terrorist, Army Maj. Nidal Hasan expressed his support for suicide bombings and killing civilians, while the terrorist, Anwar al-Awlaki, encouraged Hasan to stay in touch.

In total, Hasan wrote 18 e-mails – only two of which Awlaki replied. Most of the other e-mails were more benign.

The review was done by former FBI Director William Webster and was more than two years in the making.

The case has drawn attention to U.S. intelligence lapses. Less than a month after the Fort Hood rampage, the Pentagon’s top intelligence officer sent the White House a report detailing an earlier failure to connect the dots, CBS News correspondent David Martin reported in 2010.

And it goes on and on. They knew this guy was trouble. They knew he was a potential threat, but they didn’t want to touch him. You know why? You want to know the God’s honest truth, is that why you’re listening to this program? Because they didn’t want to be accused of discriminating a Muslim gentleman, that’s why. That’s why Obama didn’t mention it yesterday, when he was ticking off the killings that happened under his watch.

Now, he went to Fort Hood, but he left it off his list. Am I the only one to notice this? Because Fort Hood doesn’t really explain things all the ways these politicians and Obama want to have them explained, now do they? And it gets even worse. Obama goes to these places, he speaks to the people there, as a President should. He gives these national speeches and comments and then, for the most part, they never hear from him again.

But in the case of Fort Hood, it’s even worse.

    Mark Levin’s radio presentation regarding the Fort Hood murders by Nidal Hasan was outstanding as well as his summation of silence from the White House on the incident.

    Jacki: Armed citizens at Schools and public places has been long overdue. Many shopping Malls in the country have been the scene of shooting incidents and homicides prior to police arrival as well as schools. A concealed firearm permit coupled with proper training has deterred many criminal acts through the years. Citizens rarely abused state directives for the CCW. Safety issues, liability are similar to those qualifying Under HR 218, “The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004.

    Retired Officers are allowed to carry a concealed weapon in all 50 states but are discouraged from becoming involved in a gunfight unless it is a last resort, to protect their own lives, the lives of their family and or loved ones, or others from someone, who is presenting an imminent threat of inflicting death or great bodily harm. When they take action and win, they will be on their own for whatever civil litigation might follow, and a successful defense of a justifiable shooting can be very costly.

    The same holds true for anyone with a CCW or open carry, common sense on the use of lethal force. A firearm is a “tool” in the hands of a trained individual and a “lifesaver” when needed regardless of the profession,school principal to a janitor at the Mall. It’s better to be prepared with the weapon holstered than to be in a dangerous encounter and not have the weapon available.

    …early sixties, the state of NM, pubic high school, we were all driving our ’57 chevys then to school. In the school parking lot, you could go up and down the rows and lose count of the rifles in the racks of the pickups there belonging to the school kiddos. Couldn’t see the ones in the trunks of the autos. We actually had rifle club..where you learned to shoot your rifle like they did in the military. Rapid fire from a bolt action. Laying prone on the ground, one five round stripper clip in the left hand, while propping up the forearm of that old ’03 or Enfield and readying to load that clip after the first five shots were fired. This had nothing whatsoever to do with ROTC–this was merely “Rifle Club” activities. Pistols were there, but nobody seemed to care much about them. Rifles in the hands of students those days was not just legal folks, it was promoted. On rifle day, usually Wednesday, they came in on school buses also. Stored in the class room until school was out and club activities were allowed..like film club, etc…we had rifle club. Didn’t think it was out of the ordinary. And nobody ever shot the school up, nor was anybody ever hurt even accidentally. Then the government stepped in and you know the rest of the story….

    As of 12-18-12 my State(FL)now has 1,000,645 concealed weapons license holders. We carry mostly everywhere including malls and movie theaters. Therefore, we have a low incident of violent crime. And, we like it that way!Hey O-Bozo, stay out of my business!
