Colonel Jack Jacobs Repeatedly Shushes Pro-Gun Lunatic

Pro-gun nuts are coming out of the woodwork to press the idea that military personal on civilian bases should all be armed, but Medal Of Honor winner "shuts him up, literally.

Heather caught this exchange on MSNBC's Jansing & Co., between Colonel Jack Jacobs and John Lott, a pro-gun researcher who wrote a book called More Guns, Less Crime. Lott proposes arming the military on civilian posts at all times as a solution to base shootings like the one at Fort Hood. These ideas came into play after the Sandy Hook disaster when the NRA psychos went on the air and pushed the sick idea that arming school teachers was the way to go, baby. Guns, guns, guns, more guns and more bullets. Colonel Jack Jacobs was having none of his nonsense and made that very clear from this exchange.

Jacobs: Well there are several issues here, the first is whom do you arm, Do you arm wives, dependents? It's absolutely a ludicrous suggestion. The situation at Fort Hood the other day in the circumstance in which everyone had weapons could very easily result and probably would have resulted in enormous mass fratricide and you would have this all the time.

Second problem revolves around the notion that civilian life, or military life on a civilian post is just like combat.

The third point revolves around the notion that the shooter values his own life more than he does carrying out more than what he's going to carry out and therefore he's not going ot do it if everybody else is armed. Complete nonsense.

Lott mentioned that mass shooters are looking for attention. What news! A few minutes later Jacobs tells him to be quiet.

Jacobs: Arming everybody on posts seems to be a very foolish stance..(Lott tries to cut in) No, be quiet. A very foolish response (The colonel) to a problem that needs a solution, (You make hyperbole here) but this is not the solution. Please, don't be rude..

Lott: No, earlier you were talking about...

Jacobs: Please. Don't Be Rude.

Savanna: let him finish his statement.

Jacobs: Be quiet. Arming everybody on posts and the intended danger in doing that is not a solution to protect the lives of people who serve and sacrifice for us. Now you can say what you want to say.
