To the DC officer that was wounded in the line of duty...good job! Hope you were able to shoot the POS. Hope you heal quickly and can return to duty. We need you out here.

May the wounded Officer heal quickly and return to the job as we need all the Heroes we can get. Now, to the Naval Officers (?) who hid behind locked doors, how sad. Why in the hell wasn't someone armed? It is a U.S.Naval Base! How did this pos and his cohort gain entry? Were there no Marines on the gate? I wonder how the powere that be are going to explain this. Probably going to blame the weapons, not the slimeballs that used them. Blues, Stay Safe.

Way to take the fight to the bad guy. Get well.

"Why the hell wasn't someone armed?" Well, we're talking Washington DC, the land of gun-hating liberals. They're afraid one of their citizens might be killed by an armed law enforcement officer (they hate that). Remember Ft. Hood..tons of troops all disarmed by the wimps at the top of command who flap their hands at actual violence and troops protecting themselves.

Prayers the officer will have a quick recovery.

Capt. Crunch @ 9/17/2013 10:36 AM

I agree with Bob, on this one. If any blame goes to weapons, it would be the shortage of weapons.

Get better and stay safe. Gun battles are not fun. Sounds like your training kicked in. Good job. Put either the Navy Master-at-Arms back on the gates or the Marines. Put K-9's with them to detect explosives or weapons.
