Should Recruiters Be Armed?
Absolutely! They're the most visible members of the armed forces at home (such a description is ABSURD if they can't be armed except in battle zones). They have a TARGET painted on their backs, just like the cops today. More cops have been murdered by criminals from ambush because there are more of them out “among us” wearing that uniform with that shiny “target” on their chests, driving well-marked patrol cars (Nut at least, they ARE armed--so far). Military men mostly are in “civvies” when at home, unless they have a duty station that requires a uniform. I think any time a soldier must wear a uniform, a gun should be part of the uniform. At least a side arm. They should not be made to be a target without the means to defend themselves. Frankly, I don't think any other country has such an absurd rule about their soldiers being armed on military reservations. (Guns)
