      can you clarify, please? I know what posse comitatus is, but not clear on your reference to it here.

        The military has no special preference within the US. While they're here, they're citizens with the same rights we have. I have no problem with every citizen being armed, but not based on their membership in the military.

          Posse comitatus has not relevance regarding ability of military personal to be armed in recruiting centers to protect against terrorists. It's common sense. Gun free zones are soft targets and preferred targets for lunatics.

            5 unarmed deaths from 1 lunatic in a nation of some 330,000,000 people is not a tragedy sufficient to enact a major change. It's kind of like the response from many patriot type groups of standing guard outside of the recruiting centers. If you look hard enough, (in fact I already know,) for active duty military killed by cops this year and last---those are tragedies.

              So it's better to keep the most highly trained specialists in the world unarmed and unable to defend themselves. It's better theses heroes die, along with those killed by Major Hassan and others killed at soft targets because the good guys couldn't shoot back.

              Additionally, I'm not sure why you have such animosity toward the police, but I suggest you ask law-abiding people living in major cities if they would prefer living without the police and see what kind of response you get.

              The precious few bad apples are intentionally magnified by liberal. Of the millions of police encounters occurring, we've seen what, maybe two stories this year, that were actually at fault.

    Good Ole Party.
    GOP strikes again.
    They have been the Manchurian Candidate Party for 100 years. Always pretending to defend liberty and in reality promoting bigger more powerful state with every action.
