If you're one of the people who think it's madness to prohibit the carrying of firearms in military workplaces, there's some good news developing. The U.S. Navy is planning to place armed guards at reserve centers. NBC News reports:
Chattanooga Shooting: Navy Plans Armed Guards for Reserve Centers After a gunman killed four Marines and a sailor at a Navy Reserve Center in Chattanooga last month, the Navy plans to station armed guards at all of its reserve centers across the country, NBC News has learned. An email sent to Naval Reservists nine days after the attack, and obtained by NBC News, says "VOLUNTEERS NEEDED IMMEDIATELY!" to provide 45 days of "armed sentry watchstander duty" at 53 "NOSCs," or Navy Reserve Centers, beginning Aug. 17, and also asks for volunteers to provide a full year of armed sentry duty at 70 reserve centers starting Oct. 17.
