An Islamic Terrorist attacked two military recruiting facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee today, killing at least four Marines and wounding a soldier and a police officer.
Although the FBI and the mainstream media immediately tried to deny the attack was terror related, there are a number of reports that ISIS associated twitter accounts started tweeting #CHATTANOOGA right before the shooting started. FBI Special Agent in Charge Ed Reinhold said authorities were still investigating a motive.
Investigators “have not determined whether it was an act of terrorism or whether it was a criminal act,” Ed Reinhold, FBI special agent in charge, told reporters. “We are looking at every possible avenue, whether it was terrorism — whether it was domestic, international — or whether it was a simple, criminal act.”

The U.S. Navy released the following statement:
The U.S. Navy can confirm there were multiple shots fired at the Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) in Chattanooga, Tennessee at approximately 11 a.m. EST Thursday. The NOSC is used by Navy and Marine Corps personnel, and is often referred to as a “reserve center.”
The NOSC Chattanooga mission is to provide training and readiness support for our reserve component personnel to enable them to support the needs of the Navy and Marine Corps team. At this time, we can confirm four U.S. Marines were killed. Names will be released pending next of kin notification.
The shootings began at a recruiting center on Old Lee Highway in Chattanooga where five branches of the military all have adjoining offices. Brian Lepley, a spokesman with the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in Fort Knox, Kentucky, said his recruiters there were told by law enforcement that the shooter was in a car, stopped in front of the facility, shot at the building and drove off.
Within minutes of the first attack, the shooter then drove to the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center Chattanooga, about 7 miles away, and opened fire.
Early reports have identified the terrorist shooter as 24-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez. It’s believed that the shooter was born in Kuwait, but information has not been released on his immigration status. The shooter was shot dead by Police.
What you’re not being told…
Besides the fact that the media and the Obama administration are refusing to call this a terrorist attack, another thing that is being totally ignored is the fact that this happened in a gun free zone. As I pointed out earlier this week, in my article about gun ownership in the United States, since 1950 all but two of this country’s mass shootings have taken place in designated gun-free zones.

Gun Free Zone at a Military Recruitment Center?
Believe it or not, our military is not allowed to carry firearms on military bases or in military facilities.
Yes, you heard that right. Even though security levels were just raised at U.S. Military bases because of threats from Islamic State terrorists and an FBI bulletin was released over the Fourth of July weekend specifically warning about attacks on military inside the U.S., our military is still not allowed to carry firearms to defend themselves on base.
Why is the Military not allowed to Carry Guns?
The story you’re not hearing is how this was allowed to happen in the first place.
Our government has turned our military bases into terrorist targets, and have made it impossible for members of the military to protect themselves while on base. The same policies that made it possible for a terrorist to execute 13 members of the military at Fort Hood, have now caused another tragedy that could have been prevented if our military was only allowed to protect themselves.
