Finally, they will be able to protect themselves.
Via Washington Examiner:
In response to deadly shootings over the last several years, the Defense Department is reducing restrictions on U.S. military service members’ ability to carry concealed handguns for protection at government facilities.
The new directive, which went into effect Nov. 18, says service members, including military recruiters, can now request to carry their privately-owned firearms, Army Maj. Jamie Davis, a Defense Department spokesman, told the Military Times on Monday.
We can trust our military to risk and surrender life and limb to keep the rest of us safe, but we can't trust them to carry a gun in America because they might hurt someone.
Problems with this?
Yeah. It doesn't go far enough in removing restrictions but Rome wasn't built in a day.
