Navy Yard Shooting

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) introduced the Safe Military Bases Act Thursday repealing the ban on the carrying of firearms on military bases. Since the Clinton-era ban there have been two mass shootings on military bases.

“Our disarmed military bases are vulnerable targets for terrorists, as we saw in Fort Hood and the Navy Yard. Despite that, soldiers trained to use guns cannot carry on base. The result is two mass killings where defenseless soldiers had to watch as their friends were murdered,” said Stockman.

“Why are civilians at a restaurant are allowed to defend themselves but soldiers trained in firearms aren’t? Why can’t we extend common sense gun laws like open carry to our soldiers?,” said Stockman.
