The morning after a deadly attack on two military centers in Chattanooga, residents in Hiram 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. Details: http://www.myfoxdc.com/story/29572644/hiram-watch
Recruiting offices are designated as being “gun-free zones” which means officers working there cannot carry their sidearm into the building. “To think the people who are supposed to protect and serve us are unable to protect and serve… protect themselves,” said Tewellow.
"Good. And the idea of having lots of armed citizens everywhere makes sense. When you face a diffuse, widely-distributed threat, you need a diffuse, widely-distributed defense. You can’t do that with police and military because there aren’t enough of them. But you can do it with ordinary citizens. And there’s one group of responders that will always be on the scene of any attack — the citizens who are already there. If they’re able to respond, things are much better than if they’re not."
