Calls for End of Gun Free Zones at Military Bases

Description

Since four Marines and a sailor were killed in Chattanooga, average Americans have been stunned by the revelation that service members at military installations aren’t permitted to carry firearms. Most never dreamed that under Obama, these had become gun-free zones. Ordinary citizens have begun standing guard outside recruiting offices to protect those inside. In Virginia, a man with an AR-15 shook hands with thankful passersby, explaining that, “fundamental Muslim extremism” is waging war against us, but out leaders are either unable or unwilling, “to put it in perspective and [realize] that the war is here.” He urged Americans to call their Senators and Representatives and insist they abolish military “gun-free” zones. Citizens in other states have begun joining the effort. One said, “To think the people who are supposed to protect and serve us are unable to protect and serve…themselves.” Asking that citizens not stand guard, the Pentagon explained they were “reviewing recommendations from the services for making our installations…safer.” Yet they’ve mentioned no specific steps for doing that, like arming service members. But Gun Owners of America has been working with several congressmen to introduce legislation calling for all U.S. military bases to allow soldiers to carry firearms. Its executive director, Larry Pratt, ranked as the second most influential pro-gun rights advocate by NewsMax Magazine, has issued an open ended question to Barack Hussein Obama: "If you were to wake up tomorrow with news that millions of enemy soldiers just crossed our porous Southern border, would you send soldiers to defend our country without guns? If not, then why don't you allow our fighting forces to be armed on our military bases?"
