gunCHATTANOOGA, TN – Five people, including the alleged shooter, are dead after a rampage at two military recruitment centers in Tennessee.

The FBI’s Knoxville Field Office, along with the Chattanooga Police Department and other law enforcement partners, are working jointly to investigate today’s shootings at a military recruitment center and a reserve center in Chattanooga, Tennessee in which four individuals were killed and three injured.

The shooter, Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24, is also deceased. Reports say he was born in Kuwait.

While it would be premature to speculate on the motives of the shooter at this time, the FBI said afterward, a thorough investigation of the tragedy will be undertaken by that agency.

    And shocker, it was a home grown, redneck, racist, terrorist. The future of terrorism in America are the right wing nut jobs who can’t handle that their vision for America is slowly fading away.

        Wow, just when I thought that you couldn’t spout any more ridiculous paranoid thoughts David/maybe, you prove me wrong.
        The stuff that you manage to pull out of your nether regions, is astounding.
        This has been debunked many times, pure propaganda, don’t be a sheep.

        They weren’t spurred to do what they did by a political party.
        They did what they did because they were batshit crazy with some warped ideology.

    I am getting more and more pissed off at our administration, they classify this shooting as domestic terrorism, which according to the administrations own definition a white, christian, gun owner, conservative, patriot. This guy was a moslem terrorist plain and simple. The active duty military right now is around 1.2 million and that includes guard and reserves not to mention the millions of veterans, and right now they are all pissed off, HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE AN AMERICAN SCORNED.

        I don’t want to take up arms against our government, I really don’t but more and more of our freedoms are being taken away everyday. Thomas Jefferson said, “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” As much as I hate it, it might have to be done.

            You couldn’t beat me in debate, so you had to resort to banning me. It’s what inferior minded people do. They also make up a bunch of lies and repeat them over and over again hoping to cement them as truth. But one thing your very disturbed and limited intellect cannot fathom is that I don’t use drugs….well except for an occasional beer, O’Doul’s or morning coffee. Just because I want to see the drug war ended doesn’t make me a druggie. But go on and keep with your delusion. I know it helps you feel better about yourself.

      Even bases in kuwait are weapons free basically. When we came from iraq to kuwait we had to stop at the border, unload our weapons and store the ammo so we did have our weapons but no ammo for it. There is a war going on and we are being attacked where the enemy knows we are the most vulnerable. How many times do we have to blame the tool instead of the person using it, only the most ignorant idiots blame the tool and these idiots will be the death of everybody.

It really doesn’t matter as Obama brags about having a phone and a pen and all he has to do is sign a executive order changing it. He does it for everything else but won’t lift his pen to save our military.

          You can’t blame the President for everything. This is a direct quote from the article I cited
          “So what’s the answer? It appears this “gun-free zone” type policy can actually be traced back to Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 5210.56, signed into effect in February 1992 by Donald J. Atwood, deputy secretary of defense under President George H.W. Bush.”

    Say what you want about George W. Bush, but at least he tried to protect us. It wasn’t until after all the policy changes the Obama White House has made that America has come under consistent terrorist attacks.

    Our military needs to be armed, everywhere! Stop this ban on military bases or at work, or after work for that matter for being armed! This really pisses me off. Four Marines are dead for no reason. The photo that I saw on this shooting showed the bullet holes on the door or wall next to the sign, “this is a gun free zone.” What more do you need to know? The shooter knew they didn’t have guns. Our military are fish in a barrel every place these guys and gals go. We need to change the policy and let them, make them wear arms at all times that they are in uniform and let them carry if they want when not in uniform.
