As we noted, the investigation into last week’s terrrorist attack on two Chattanooga military facilities seemed to indicate that, despite policy, at least one Marine was armed at the time. Now, according to a Navy Times report two servicemen with guns engaged the shooter. “A Navy officer and a Marine fired their sidearms hoping to kill or subdue the gunman who murdered five service members last week in Chattanooga, Tennessee, according to multiple military officials familiar with internal reporting on the tragedy.” Good to hear, right? Well . . .
That depends. It will take our friends in the Civilian Disarmament Industrial Complex about five femtoseconds to spout their narrative of choice: See! They were armed and it didn’t matter! Guns don’t solve anything!
Second Amendment supporters will have their own story: Thank God at least two of them were packing and returned fire! Think how much worse it would have been if they hadn’t!
Where do you come down?
