Outrage and an officer: The anatomy of a Navy controversy after the Chattanooga attack

Dan Lamothe, The Washington Post

The attack on the Naval Reserve support center in Chattanooga killed four Marines and a Navy sailor, and spawned a national debate about whether the U.S. military should arm more service members who work out of small, unguarded facilities like recruiting stations and reserve centers. But it also spawned questions about whether White could face discipline for carrying and discharging a privately owned handgun on federal property, where it was not allowed.

Obama Killed The Four Marines In Tennessee, GOP Does Nothing

It is time to say plainly that what killed the four Marines at the Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee was not “violent extremism.” It was President Barack Obama’s policy of importing jihad by bringing thousands of Muslim immigrants into the United States, and the Capitol Hill Republicans’ criminal culpability for being so politically correct and feckless that they won’t even talk about the existential threat this policy offers to constitutional liberty, let alone stop it.
