I am not going to refer to any specific article. Something needs to be done to arm our military personnel. Right now, they are doing their job in uniform which apparently is the same thing as drawing an X on their backs and saying “shoot me!” Why must military personnel go around unarmed? How many times have innocent troops been the target of terrorists and crazies? What’s even more disturbing is the fact that the local police has to come to the rescue of the military. This happens time and time again–Chattanooga, Navy Yard, Fort Hood, the list goes on.
Somewhere along the way, the military needs to change its policy. Those wearing the uniform are going to have to be armed and well-prepared to use the weapon in the face of danger.
I don’t know much about military regulations but many of you all do. Please enlighten us as to why the military isn’t armed. They, like every other person, as a right to defend themselves.
