Few Details on Fort Hood Shooter at this Time

It appears that there are four dead, including the shooter, and 14 wounded so far.  The shooter is identified as Ivan Lopez.

Federal policies were changed after the last Fort Hood shooter to make sure that military posts were even more certain to be gun free zones than they used to be:

From The Truth About Guns:

11. The Texas Concealed Handgun Law does not apply on Fort Hood. Concealed handguns are prohibited on Fort Hood.

All official firearms are unloaded and locked away in vaults.
 Nearly all soldiers there are disarmed.

I can't believe this is STILL allowed to happen on military installations. It is ridiculous to force military personnel to be disarmed once on any installation. Fish in a barrel, we are. There are solutions to help stop these demented, un-law-abiding shooters and SAVE lives.
