Michael Savage Blames Clinton's Gun Control for the Fort Hood Tragedy

WND reports
As the trial of the Fort Hood killer finally began this week, Michael Savage reminded listeners why all the victims were unarmed and therefore unable to defend themselves, even though they were on a military base.
“Bill Clinton disarmed our troops,” Dr. Savage explained. “One of his first acts upon taking office in 1993 was to prevent soldiers on military bases from carrying their personal firearms. … The 13 bodies in that Texas morgue are the direct result of gun-control craziness as enacted by Clinton” (FREE audio).
I'm not so sure that's true.  I don't think soldiers on military bases carried weapons even before Clinton, unless of course they were MPs. Besides, as Jared Loughner proved, it doesn't matter. Armed good guys are powerless to stop a maniac in time.
