I read in the article on Reuters that military personnel are not allowed to carry firearms on the base, but that they don't really check non-military personnel for firearms who have the proper security badges.
Let me get this straight, you don't allow the people who have sworn an oath to uphold the constitution to be armed, but those who haven't aren't even checked for weapons?
That seems logical.

And, here's comes the religious angle...
wait for it...
By Monday afternoon, a portrait of Alexis had begun to emerge. He lived until recently in Fort Worth, where he was seen frequently at a Buddhist temple, meditating and helping out. He was pursuing a bachelorï¿½s of science degree in aeronautics as an online student at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

There's a typo, Muslim doesn't start with a "B." It's early, somehow terrorism and chemical weapons will be involved.

Clearly, this is an Al Qaeda conspiracy to "prove," to us that not all terrorists are Muslim.

Phew! For a moment I was worried that he had trained on Wundang Mountain.

Suffered from 9/11 PTSD:
Seattle police said on Monday that during their inquiries into the 2004 incident, Alexis's father reported that he suffered from "anger management problems associated with PTSD, and that Alexis had been an active participant in rescue attempts on September 11, 2001".
No more "military-style," but assault rifle has entered the narrative, finally:
Sources say Alexis was armed with three weapons: an assault rifle, a shotgun and a pistol. All of the guns were recovered near his body.
A Navy official tells NPR's Tom Bowman that Alexis received a general discharge in January of 2011 because of "misconduct issues."
Presumably, this is an OTH (other than honorable) discharge.
How does a guy with mental issues and a history of gun violence get into the Navy Reserves? How does this same guy, later receiving a general discharge because of an additional gun "mishap," manage to get Secret clearance with the Navy as a civvy subcontractor? There are some serious bureaucratic shortfalls in the Navy infrastructure, at the very least.
