The recruitment center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, where four Marines were gunned down by an Islamic terrorist, was a “gun-free zone.” That meant that anybody with evil intent in their heart who had a gun and had some reason to kill American servicemen on United States soil, would meet with no armed resistance.
So to do what our own government would not do, a group of gun-owning citizens decided to stand guard outside a recruiting center in Hiram, Georgia, just a few miles from one of my offices because these recruitment centers are a “Gun-Free Zone.”
These zones only tell the crazies and criminals were the soft targets are.
Our government is more concerned about fried food than the safety of Marines:
“In an effort to kick up its healthy eating ‘Go for Green’ campaign, it will stop frying foods like chicken and French fries and bake them instead. It is also axing whole milk and replacing it with skim and soy, reports Navy Times.”
Isn’t that special. Which do you think is more dangerous — fried foods or lead bullets? It’s obvious that our government didn’t learn anything from the Fort Hood shooting — another Gun-Free Zone shooting.
Here’s the article about Second Amendment armed citizens exercising their rights to protect their fellow-citizens.
The morning after a deadly attack on two military centers in Chattanooga, residents in Hiram [Georgia] are standing watch outside the local recruiting office with their personal firearms. It is their unique way of honoring the fallen Marines and they said to protect the lives of those who serve in the military.
“I teared up. I think any human being would be touched by what happened yesterday. Any U.S. citizen that has a heart and a soul to hear what had happened,” said Crystal Tewellow, who organized the watch.
Recruiting offices are designated as being “gun-free zones” which means officers working there cannot carry their sidearm into the building. Tewellow, whose son just enlisted and the army and has a brother who is a recruiter, felt compelled to organize the watch.
“To think the people who are supposed to protect and serve us are unable to protect and serve… protect themselves,” said Tewellow. “So if us, the citizens, who carry permits, are able to help protect them that’s, that’s what we’re gonna be able to do.”
News Radio 106.7’s Nathalie Pozo was at the recruitment center on Friday morning and reported that about 30 people answered the call to arms.
“This is who is fighting for us,” said Tewellow. “This is who is giving us our freedom, who allows us to wake every day and if they’re not here, and is taken down just like the Chattanooga incident, then how can we say that we are going to be able to wake up tomorrow?”
More people are expected to show up throughout the day. Twellow said they are trying to have at least one person standing vigil every hour.
