Texas Congressman Steve Stockman has introduced a bill that would allow military personnel to carry firearms on military bases on American soil.
Check it out:
Stockman took to USA Today in an op-ed to make the case for his bill. Here is an excerpt,
The ban on allowing military personnel to carry weapons on base is a 20-year experiment that failed and places servicemembers in danger.
The April 2 tragedy at Fort Hood was the third mass shooting on a military base in five years. That’s because our trained servicemembers aren’t allowed to carry their weapons under a regulation implemented in 1993. Before the ban, there were not large numbers of gun accidents or shootings on military bases.
