A Virginia man stands guard with a fully loaded AR-15 carbine at a local U.S. Armed Forces recruiting office after the horrific murder of four Marines in Chattanooga Tn. earlier this week. The recruiting offices as are all U.S. military installations are “gun-free zones” thanks to a bill signed into law during the Clinton administration. Since the law was passed banning the carrying of weapons by military personnel, there have been attacks on Fort Hood, the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard, and another military recruiting station, in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The man, who didn’t want to be named, is legal in doing this as Virginia allows open carrying of weapons. He has been well received by the staff working in the office. He is doing this to show a statement that we will not be intimidated or stopped by a few Islamic radicals.
To show him appreciation the wife’s of some of the personnel baked him cookies and brought him lunch.
