so shouldn't we re visit why active duty military members must be disarmed on base?
Everyone is hailing her as a hero because she was the only person with a pistol between dude and mass murder, but if he'd shot her in the face and not the chest we'd all be talking about how a guy got on a military base and shot a bunch of unarmed people.
maybe we should let all the other people on a base carry sidearms?
"According to the FBI, the incredible acts of heroism by the NASCC Military Policewoman guarding entrance to the base, saved many lives yesterday. The active duty U.S. Navy military police woman at the Ocean Drive gate has probably checked thousands of IDs and allowed access to thousands of authorized people at NAS Corpus Christi.
But yesterday morning, at barely the first light of day, a terrorist tried to get past her. That terrorist, Adam Salem Alsahli (a Syrian born U.S. citizen), picked the wrong gate guard to try to get past.
He must’ve thought that all he would have to do is lift the pistol off of his lap, point it at the gate guard (while she looked him in the face) shoot her point blank in the chest and then be able to drive on to the base and use his assault rifle and shotgun to kill as many people as he could.
He sure was wrong!
She took the bullet dead center in her chest, but that happens to be the area of the bullet resistant Kevlar vest, which has a steel, ceramic-coated plate over center mass to protect the heart and vital organs.
Yes, no doubt the impact knocked her down to the floor, but she got right back up and hit the emergency button that activated a very strong pop up barricade, which stopped and disabled the terrorist’s vehicle. Then, as he was getting his assault rifle out of his car, she shot him to death.
He was connected to Jihadists groups in the Middle East and May have acted yesterday, in response to the FBI’s announcement on Monday in regard to the terrorist attack back some months ago at NAS Pensacola, which like NASCC, is a major training base for military pilots.
FBI credits the NAS MP, who stopped the Terrorist from mass murder on Naval Air Station CC. For her heroic, life saving actions, that U.S. Navy Military Policewoman should get not only the Purple Heart, but also the highest military accommodation that can be applied to this case of domestic terrorism."
there was a change back in '17 or so that put this onto the installation commanders. it isn't an outright DOD policy anymore.
That was back before trump went all bump stock banny though and wanted people to think he cared about 2A rights
I’m not sure all of this is accurate
You are correct, she did not shoot him, but did activate the defensive posts things (whaterever they are called) after she was shot.
"Other security personnel shot and killed the attacker."
