Crazy Gunmen Threatening US Freedom


A former Navy reservist killed at least 12 people yesterday in a mass shooting at a secure military facility. It made me sad.
President  Barack Obama said, "As we learn more about the courageous Americans who  died today -- their lives, their families, their patriotism -- we will  honor their service to the nation they helped to make great."

President Obama made a statement yesterday further said, "I've been briefed by my team. We don't know all the facts but several people have been shot and some killed. We are confronting another mass shooting and today it happened on a military base. They are patriots and they know danger of serving abroad but today faced violence they wouldn't expect here at home." California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein said that "Congress must stop shirking its responsibility and resume a thoughtful debate on gun violence in this country,"  She further stated, "We must do more to stop this endless loss of life."


In my opinion US will be able to deal with gun violence (domestic terrorism) and the US FBI is able to deal with gun violence terrorist threats within the US land.  That leaves hundreds, maybe thousands, of gun violence around the US for the US to deal with.  The only way possible to do that is use the Army and police force to develop human intelligence in the most critical areas, keep sufficient forces in important places to defend freedom and against isolated crazy gunmen as determined by the intelligence.  The worst scenario is if crazy gunmen further gain control of an entire places then the US Congress can declare a national emergency and US can go to control guns like Obama is trying to do.
Crazy gunmen have caused American deaths in the US for a long time. There have been many violence acts against Americans since then, but American reactions to these events should be effectual. The policy seems to be to protect the most vulnerable public places, and these are government buildings, utilities, schools, etc.
The US needs to control guns to eliminate violence.  It is important to control guns because some crazy gunmen attack important places and some crazy gunmen are known to harbor domestic terrorism ideals.  The administration should refocus its goal on controlling guns.  It seems to me that the US police should be given a greater role. This idea is workable.  In summary, there is a practical way to control guns.
