 are the four soldiers who were murdered last April at Fort Hood.
 They are proof that the NRA's argument that having people be armed to prevent such mass shootings is absolutely WRONG. Look at how many guns there were at Fort Hood. Each soldier had a gun. In fact, they all had assault rifles. But with just a pistol the gunman just walked into a gun store and bought (this is Texas, after all,) he killed four people, and injured tens more. And he ended up shooting himself. Looks like all those assault rifles and machine guns the soldiers had in their hands couldn't save anyone. Plus, the fact that be did this with a pistol gives more proof that all guns need to be banned, and I'm sure that after the incident, even the military is willing to agree.

Why didn't all those guns the soldiers had at Fort Hood save anybody?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
