Because Right-Wingers use the dead to advance their beliefs. Conservatives are natural cowards who will never follow through with the BS they spout, as they lack the courage of their convictions.
However, they love when other people die because conservatives are grave robbers and fakes who have no right to speak for the dead.
The Second Fort Hood Shooting has reved up Dana Loesch, Jim Hoft, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and so many other right-wing nut jobs to take to their medium, be it Faux News, Toxic Right-Wing Radio or the Right-Wing Internet Fart Bubble to blame everything from Obama's Lack of Military response to Putin in Crimea to President Clinton banning active duty military from carrying weapons on base but, never, ever the ubiquitous gun culture the Right has created and championed in the US.
Of course, it was the DoD under George Bush 41 who issued the 1992 directive which outlined when the carrying of firearms on base was authorized but, that fact is irrelevant to the larger right-wing purpose.
Allen West and Sean Hannity can try and speak somberly about on President Obama's unwillingness to accept a Post-9/11 World and failure to stand up Putin as the causes but, what's important is to consistently and reflexively Blame President Obama and Liberals for everything and to use the dead to advance right-wing beliefs.
What conservatives would love to see happen in the case of an active shooter on a military base is for other military members to come out hunting.
However, unlike, conservative fantasies, the bad guy does not have a Glowing Red X over his head indicating foe while other armed soldiers have Rotating Green O over theirs indicating good guy with a gun.
Friend and Foe recognition isn't automatic but, what do conservatives care? They won't be anywhere near the crossfire because conservatives don't serve in the military and aren't on base.
More guns is not the answer. It never has been. The death of American Sniper Chris Kyle last year could have caused Firearm Fanatics to re-evaluate their beliefs but because gun nuts are zealots and madmen, every shooting just serves to further entrench them and hardens their fanaticism.
Senior Breitbart Contributer and conservative hero Pat Dollard's tweet after the Second Fort Hood Shooting demanding that Americans take to the streets to start slaughtering muslims deserves mention. Back during the Presidency of George W(orst Ever) Bush, Dollard was invited onto Faux News regularly and in 2007 revealed so much of the modern conservatives, "This is a propaganda war, and if I can fight with a camera the same as a Marine with his rifle, I will."
True to form Speaker John Boehner is using the Second Fort Hood shooting to push for privitazation of VA Services. Of course, the Republican Plan would not address Mental Health or restrictions on guns but is a sick attempt to siphon off funds from the VA into the back accounts of the Rich.
