Fort Hood Tightens Security

According to CNN. Among the usual security theater of armed guards, checkpoints, and "random inspections of containers", there's an interesting little detail:

"Soldiers assigned to Fort Hood will have to register their personal firearms with the director of emergency services, [Col. Bill Hill, garrison commander] added."

This is so amazingly useless, paternalistic, and insulting it's a bit difficult to put together a response.

Gun control didn't work last time, so what we really need is more of it. If it isn't working, do it harder. Gun control is basically like abstinence education.
