A gunman killed at least four marines Thursday afternoon in Tennessee when he unloaded a rain of gunfire into two military facilities, but the irony of a sign on one of the doors riddled with gunfire hasn't gone unnoticed.
On one of the doors — riddled with bullet holes — is a sign banning guns.
This photo says it all. Just unreal. Marines here don't have guns, come on in! http://t.co/2YoBXqfJfS— Katie Pavlich (@KatiePavlich) July 16, 2015
The debate over the sign quickly erupted on social media.
You don’t trust a soldier to carry a gun to protect themselves here but you trust them to serve??— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 16, 2015
Longer. And you don’t have to act like a prick, @Montel_Williams . It’s a FACT. Gun free zone. STOP DISARMING TROOPS.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) July 16, 2015
Stupidity is rampant in this country. Gun Free Zone=Target Rich Environment. https://t.co/2kDDG1Mpjx— The Original Eric B. (@eburcham) July 16, 2015
Another shooting in a gun free zone? Why not return to allowing trained soldiers to carry their side arms? pic.twitter.com/InnkA12eRR— Jacques Rondeau (@DallasRondeau) July 16, 2015
Chattanooga's mayor said five people died in all — including the gunman.
