Military Firearms Rights

There were four Marines and one Sailor murdered in a terrorist attack in Chattanooga, TN.  They were not authorized to carry firearms for self protection.  Despite this, at least two people there fired back at the attacker.

The Second Amendment grants Americans the right to keep and bear arms.  American's rights don't end when they leave the front door of their house.  Their rights don't end when the put on the uniform of the military service.

It is despicable that the Federal government has for decades prevented American servicemen from carrying guns for self protection.  These are people who are putting their lives on the line for us.  The least we can do is to let them carry a gun to protect themselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
