Dick Collier’s Saturday editorial cartoon didn’t make much sense. He called Fort Hood “another American battlefield.”

On a battlefield, both sides have firearms. On an American military base, only murderers and military police have firearms.

It’s a shame that our military must live under the gun control axiom: When seconds count, help is only minutes away.

— John Flenniken, Willow Park
