Protective gate sentries were not allowed to possess readily useable  firearms. 241 Marines were killed by one person driving a truck bomb.  From Wikipedia, “The sentries at the gate [of the Marine Barracks] were operating under rules of engagement, which made it very difficult to respond quickly to the truck. Sentries were ordered to keep their weapons at condition four (no magazine inserted and no rounds in the chamber). Only one sentry, LCpl Eddie DiFranco, was able to load and chamber a round. However, by that time the truck was already crashing into the building's entryway.”

Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:


Those in the profession of armed response, or in training for that profession, were not allowed to possess readily useable firearms. Persons of mental derangement or purposes of murder for religious reasons generally target unarmed or innocent people who are without means of armed protection. Those responsible for establishing the rules, policies, and politics that prohibit armed protection against armed aggression in environments in need of protection in these cases were part of the US Government and helped steal the lives from the victims by disallowing them the opportunity to defend themselves and others in a dangerous environment. This MOT Ballot weighs the theft of protection of US Citizens in the service of the US by Presidents Carter and Obama who established the engagement rules that allowed and enabled these thefts of US military personnel lives and others.
