Your post was wrong, so I fixed it.

My brother travels to Fort Hood every now and then. Glad he wasn't there this time.

Really, when is anything EVER a terrorist act since 9/11?

Not to derail the thread, as this is pretty terrible. Feel bad for those guys, but the numbers are ridiculous considering the location...
In my head I'd imagine after two shots, someone would have put him down...

Generally people don't walk around with loaded weapons on post.

Do you even think?

What your original post was responding to had nothing to do with walking towards the guy. He said he doesn't kn ow how someone didn't put him down. Implying there were other people with guns....

Have you ever entered a military base?

There are MPs with guns there (given, these are very often not loaded, or at least not all loaded).

There is also an armory on base.

There are MPs with guns and access to ammunition in at least one building on base.

Shooting this guy before the cops showed up was a definite possibility.

*EDIT* I guess I should point out that this in in response to Mao, if that wasn't obvious.

Sorry by you saying "put him down" I thought you were referring to somebody tackling him. I'm sorry.

I meant shoot the crud out of him. Also my knowledge of military bases is EXTREMELY limited obviously.

I think facepalming a post post-facepalmed post is kind of silly.

So... somebody needs to hand in their rifle marksmanship ribbons?
 
So... there clearly was nobody there with paintball sniper training from SpecOps?
 
So... this is why the ammunition budget for Iraq is out of control?
 
So... somebody cut his head off with a sword, quick!  There can be only one!
 
So... praying to Allah actually works?
 
So... his rap album drops in two weeks?

quite a number including Benning which is pretty uptight...along with places like Devens as well as West Point (which is considered a post for active duty soldiers; you apply for it though)

There are MPs with guns there (given, these are very often not loaded, or at least not all loaded).

false. security even at west point was fairly tight, and we were in a government vehicle but since ONE person did not have a military ID we had to explain ourselves.

There is also an armory on base.

takes too much time to issue weapons and ammo, what if it was all the way across base? or if there was anyone else who was going to just take the weapons and go rogue themselves?

There are MPs with guns and access to ammunition in at least one building on base.

again, depends on where they are on base. MPs generally patrol in cars as well as being posted at entry and exit points to the base.

Shooting this guy before the cops showed up was a definite possibility.

most soldiers i've talked to don't carry CCW's on post, there's really no point...and running at someone when your unarmed isn't something even soldiers would think of doing. cover is first, then either return fire or find a way out and getting help

*EDIT* I guess I should point out that this in in response to Mao, if that wasn't obvious.
