Air Force cites shooting at recruitment center, allows commanders to permit gun carry
"Quick said three programs established by the Integrated Defense team enable commanders to increase security through conceal-carry. One of the new initiatives, the Unit Marshal Program, enables commanders at every level permission to work with security forces to train Air Force members and allow them to open carry their M9 service pistol at their duty location.
The Security Forces Staff Arming program enables more security officers to carry a government-issued weapon while on duty."
We've already decided Air Force members are can be trusted to fly A-10s and F-16s, and handle 20mm and 30mm rounds, cluster bombs, Hellfire missiles, and a lot of other adult fireworks, I suppose we can figure they can be trusted to handle a 9mm or .45.
A spokesman for the Campaign to Stop Gun Violence is quoted as saying "Don't hold your breath waiting for them [base commanders] to embrace America's degenerate gun culture."
