Bills Aim To Protect Military Recruiters

posted on July 22, 2015

Measures will soon be introduced in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives to allow military recruiters to carry firearms or provide security at recruitment facilities.

Current Department of Defense policy restricts active-duty military from carrying guns unless they are specifically working in a security or law-enforcement capacity. This ban effectively makes soft military targets like recruitment offices gun-free zones, leaving them defenseless against attacks like Fort Hood or last week’s recruitment center shootings in Chattanooga.

“The U.S. Constitution guarantees the ‘right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,’ yet our men and women in uniform are being prevented from exercising this constitutional right when fulfilling their duties on American soil,” Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kansas, said in a prepared statement.
