Congressman to Introduce Bill to Arm Military Recruiters

Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter’s office told The Daily Caller News Foundation they are finalizing a bill that would address a key gun regulation that could have influenced the outcome of the Chattanooga shooting. The shooting left four Marines dead after a man opened fire on a recruiting center before moving on to wound three more military members at a Naval reserve center.

Official Department of Defense policy prevents military members from carrying guns while on duty unless they are specifically working in a security or law enforcement capacity.

Advocates are saying this disarming of the troops is leaving them vulnerable to attacks like at Fort Hood and most recently Chattanooga.
