Gun grabbers attack Sarah Palin for wanting Fort Hood soldiers armed

Sarah Palin was among the many people mourning yesterday’s tragic shooting at Fort Hood, which left four people dead. And this morning, she suggested that allowing the soldiers to carry arms may have helped potential victims defend themselves:

How dare she advocate on soldiers’ behalf!

Except this isn’t about politics. This is about protecting the men and women who serve this country by allowing them to protect themselves. You’d hope that given everything that’s happened, gun control advocates would understand this. Alas, they never seem to learn. Logic is hard; lashing out at Sarah Palin is much easier.

It’s “you’re,” genius. And at Fort Hood, only security and military police are permitted to carry weapons. Soldiers are not, and as a result, they may end up in harm’s way.

Three cheers for tolerance.
