The terrorist attack in Chattanooga which ended in the deaths of five Marines and Sailors had nothing to do with guns and everything to do with an ideology. Despite this, the media is searching for a motive, the terrorist’s parents are claiming he killed soldiers because he was depressed, and Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown is spending in the six-figures to buy ads promoting more gun control.
It’s like living in an alternative universe.
Military personnel were banned from carrying weapons in military installations before we had terror attacks. That directive is no longer appropriate if it was ever appropriate and it needs to be changed, but the Pentagon, the head of the US Northern Command specifically, issued a directive Monday stating that recruiters cannot carry weapons at the centers but he wants them to implement new security measures like “closing the blinds at the office.”
Are they bulletproof blinds? That will be as effective as the gun-free zone sign on the recruiting office where our soldiers died.
