Only a few weeks ago, Americans witnessed one of the most horrific tragedies in recent memory as a Muslim terrorist gunned down four Marines and a Navy reserve member. As many are already aware, the highly trained Marines were left helpless as they were trapped in a “gun-free” zone unable to defend themselves against a heavily armed madman.
However, Western Journalism is now reporting that a Lieutenant Commander of the Marines, Timothy White, may have returned fire at the shooter with his personal firearm attempting to stop the rampage. In doing so, this brave commander could’ve possibly saved dozens if not hundreds of other lives of our servicemen and women that were in grave danger that day.
Shockingly, instead of applauding this courageous hero, the government is now investigating and possibly intending to discipline him for possessing firearms in the aforementioned “gun-free zone”.
According to Western Journalism – “A Navy officer and Marine reportedly returned fire at the shooter who killed five service members in Chattanooga, Tenn., even though current policy does not permit military members to carry firearms on facilities such as those where the attack occurred.
The cold-blooded assault killed four Marines and one active-duty Navy reservist. The center’s commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, used his personal firearm to engage the shooter during the attack, according to sources quoted in the Navy Times. A report from The Washington Post said that one of the Marines killed in the shooting might have been carrying a 9 mm Glock and possibly returned fire on the shooter.
Lt. Cmdr. White could face disciplinary action for violating policy about possessing a weapon on the facility that was supposedly a gun-free zone. The investigation into the attack is ongoing, and authorities will not know if White or the Marine hit the shooter until an autopsy and a ballistics report have been completed.
As Allen West put it – What kind of freaking idiots are in charge of our Armed Forces — pardon me, our “unArmed Forces”? What would they prefer that Abdulazeez had been able to kill all the Marines and Sailors at the Naval Support Reserve Center? Folks, this has become the Obama military that will not implement policies for our men and women in uniform to be protected — but will punish them if they do protect themselves.
What is the difference between Lt. Cmdr White and the reserve officer in Moore, Oklahoma who went to his vehicle and armed himself to prevent a second woman from being beheaded? Is it that we expect less from our uniformed warriors? Are they just supposed to sit and be butchered, gunned down, until local law enforcement come along? Let’s be very clear here, I can attest that there are many reserve and National Guard troops who are carrying concealed during their drill periods…why? Because they are lions, not sheep, like the imbeciles who are making the decision to punish Lt. Cmdr White.
Here we are sitting down with a sworn enemy in Iran who holds four Americans hostage, and we’re going to bring charges against an American Commander who returned fire against the enemy.
