I want you to remember a name. We as citizens should be helping this man.
Lt. Commander Timothy White
Let me tell you about this man, this hero! You may not even know his name, yet.
A Navy officer and Marine reportedly returned fire at the shooter who killed five service members in Chattanooga, Tenn., even though current policy does not permit military members to carry firearms on facilities such as those where the attack occurred.
The cold-blooded assault killed four Marines and one active-duty Navy reservist. The center’s commanding officer, Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, used his personal firearm to engage the shooter during the attack, according to sources quoted in the Navy Times. A report from The Washington Post said that one of the Marines killed in the shooting might have been carrying a 9 mm Glock and possibly returned fire on the shooter.
At the time, Western Journalism wrote, Lt. Cmdr. White could face disciplinary action for violating policy about possessing a weapon on the facility that was supposedly a gun-free zone. The investigation into the attack is ongoing, and authorities will not know if White or the Marine hit the shooter until an autopsy and a ballistics report have been completed.
These are the men and women we give guns to. The same ones we spend lots of money to ensure they are the best prepared, best trained and best military on the planet. These men and women know how to, when to and why to use a weapon. If anyone should be carrying it is these men and women.
So after saving the lives of fellow reservists and anyone else in that office that day this hero will be dishonorably discharged for saving lives. How stupid is that? here we have a terrorists killing people and the people we trained to kill them first have no ability to defend themselves?
This proves once again that gun free zones only work for law abiding citizens. Time and time again these gun free zones are violated by criminals. Why? Because the coward criminals are the only ones carrying guns.
it’s about time we replace “gun free zone” on military outposts and recruiting offices with “well armed staff” and while at it let’s do the same at our schools. When I grew up there were guns in the backs of trucks of students parked at school and no one ever got shot. It’s sad but true criminals break the law and one they violate most often when acting violently is “Gun Free Zone”.
Here is an email to the president of the United states.
Please join me in flooding them with tweets, facebook, email, letters and phone calls. This man is a HERO and not a criminal! Tell them to stop the madness and give this man a medal for saving the lives of the other reservists, active duty personnel and civilians who were present at the time. Tell Lt Commander White thank you from a grateful nation.

I want to see the new navy commercial featuring Lt. Commander White.

Voice yells “what were you doing soldier!”
Lt. White “Practice sir!”
Voice “What kind of practice soldier!”
