  • Theyre doing it for free and not on the government dime so that is a plus. Plus they are volunteering as well so let them go ahead

  • I can't understand how this would be considered asinine. These soldiers risk their lives for civilians, so the civilians are protecting the soldiers at home. What I think is asinine is to forbid young men and woman fighting for us overseas with machine guns, tanks, etc., to not be allowed to arm themselves for security in their own home.

  • Civillian, No. An MP or something, sure.

  • Our armed forces should be able to defend themselves on their home turf. Civvies protecting them makes them look weak.

  • The military people theyre supposedly guarding are pissed about this. Its a terrible idea.

If you didn't read the article, its a sure bet you didn't see the link. http://www.stripes.com/news/us/army-to-recruiters-treat-armed-citizens-as-security-threat-1.359134 "Army to recruiters: Treat armed citizens as security threat" The Army has warned its recruiters to treat the gun-toting civilians gathering at centers across the country in the wake of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting as a security threat. Soldiers should avoid anyone standing outside the recruiting centers attempting to offer protection and report them to local law enforcement and the command if they feel threatened, according to a U.S. Army Recruiting Command policy letter issued Monday.

The military is always overly cautious like this. Also, I've seen civilians handle guns better than soldiers. Besides, this is insinuating that it is dangerous for a civilian to have a gun and I don't buy that.

People are fallible, including soldiers.

If DonaldDuck thinks it a good idea, it must be a good idea.
