Shooting may restart debate over military security

For staffers at the Washington Navy Yard, there are no metal detectors or pat-downs when they enter the building. The recent rampage at the Navy Yard is bringing the question of security up for debate again.

The fact that the suspected gunman was able to walk into the facility while he was heavily armed is disturbing. Something must be changed to protect the people who work in military facilities.

Restricting or making guns and/or rifles unlawful is not the solution, even though some pundits are using this as another tool to infringe on the rights granted to everyone under the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. In this case, it has been reported the shooter had PTSD from his previous military service. That should have been detected and treated, but apparently was not. It is far more effective to require metal detectors at all government buildings and operations rather than impose new gun laws on the entire population of the United States.
