A fifth person died this morning I see. Such a tragedy. The law that prevents our military personnel from carrying a firearm while in uniform / on duty / on base or off has to be changed! We trust these people to defend our country with firearms and then we take them away from them.

As for the terrorist that committed this act of terrorism I have no sympathy for him nor a religion that teaches to kill or try to eradicate those who are of another faith. This is America where people of all faiths, creed color and religion are welcomed and have been for two hundred years. There are only so many times you can turn the other cheek. I hesitate to get started here because of the potential of this thread to get out of hand. Suffice it to say that we need to pray for those who were killed and injured and for the families of those brave people who were doing the job we asked them to do. We need to wake up and make our frustration and feelings known as to keeping our military personnel and OUR COUNTRY safe.  May God Bless Them All. May God Bless America.                                 Roger

Never in my life would I have believed our military and law enforcement officers would live in fear for their lives and potentially their families safety in this country. Truly a sad time for our country.

What happened in Tennessee this week was a terrible thing and I feel for the families and my brothers and sisters that put their lives on the line everyday.  We can understand wanting to Expressing your condolences and feelings, but please remember that this is a GT forum and the rules are clear about discussions of firearms and politics they will be taken down.

 

May all our fallen hero's RIP.

What makes me even madder is that the news is saying that Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez was not an Islamic terrorist.

 

 

 

My brother was working less than a mile from the shooting. He said it was pretty intense.
