WASHINGTON — The Army has warned its recruiters to treat the gun-toting civilians gathering at centers across the country in the wake of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting as a security threat. Armed citizens — some associated with activist groups and militias — were standing vigil outside recruiting centers in Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee, Idaho and elsewhere this week, saying they want to provide protection to servicemembers barred from carrying firearms on duty. Four Marines and a sailor were killed by Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old Kuwait-born resident of Tennessee, during an attack Thursday on a strip mall recruiting center and a Navy facility that is being investigated as an act of terrorism. http://www.stripes.com/news/us/army-to-recruiters-treat-armed-citizens-as-security-threat-1.359134 Veterans - - What do you think of this? Is it a good idea to have armed citizens patrolling the area in front of recruiting centers? Is the Army correct in advising recruiters to consider these people a threat? Seems to me this is a recipe for disaster - - either an accidental shooting or perhaps even a covert attack by people posing as guards.
