Military’s Gun Free Zones Partially Responsible For Dead Servicemen in Tennessee

Last week’s shootings at military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, has many Americans enthusiastically calling for an end to the ban that prohibits military members from carrying firearms on military facilities.

Alan Gottlieb, Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and the Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, says, “It’s past time for the president to direct the Department of Defense to allow our servicemen and women to defend themselves on base while they serve.”
The policy of prohibiting guns on military facilities is due to a Department of Defense Directive 5210.56 signed in 1992 by Donald J. Atwood, Deputy Secretary of Defense under President George H.W. Bush. In 1993, the policy was amended by Army Regulation 190-14 and implemented under president Bill Clinton.

But it’s the increased numbers of attacks on military facilities during the presidency of Barack Obama that concerns Gottlieb. He says, “We’ve now lost 34 people serving in uniform on Barack Obama’s watch, and there are 55 other servicemen and women carrying wounds from attacks on domestic military facilities. This latest attack is the third act of domestic terrorism carried out on U.S. military facilities since 2009. A fourth attack- not considered an act of terrorism- killed 12 people and wounded three at the Washington Navy Yard, just two years ago.”
