U.S. Military Could Learn From the IDF

Off Duty IDF Girl With Her Weapon

Its been a few weeks now since the terrorist attack at Fort Hood and after having some time to reflect on that attack many are beginning to question the policy of having our military bases the "gun free" zones they now are thanks to legislation signed by Bill Clinton back in 1993. You would think soldiers of all people would be able to carry their personal weapons while on base, and perhaps even their issued government weapons. If this had been the case at Fort Hood, I dare say the death toll would have been much lower and we would have fewer grieving family members today and just maybe a dead terrorist.

While making my daily rounds the other day I came across a great post at Seaspook titled "From the Mail Bag" on just this issue. In that post Seaspook points out that the IDF, Israeli Defense Forces not only carry their weapons (loaded)on base, but even when off duty in the cities of that beleaguered state. It now seems that American citizens are under the same threats that those in the Jewish state face. It is time, past time to arm our troops at home as well as on the battlefield, as the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan have moved to the homeland.

We know Israeli girls can shoot, but check out these young American girls.

Progressives who seek to restrict or take away gun ownership will have to deal with more than angry men. Don't mess with these girls and their guns.
