Tennessee Army And National Guard Can Now Carry Concealed Firearms At State Armories And Facilities

It was announced Thursday that Army and Air National Guard members with valid Tennessee concealed carry permits can now carry their firearms at state armories and facilities.

The move comes after the deadly attacks that took place in Chattanooga last month that left four Marines and one Sailor dead.

“We have been very deliberate in making the decision to arm our Tennessee National Guard,” Maj. Gen. Max Haston said in a statement.

“This is not a step that we take lightly, but it is apparent that military personnel have been targeted and the protection of our soldiers and airmen is of utmost importance. Physical security and risk assessment is something that we continually do as part of our day to day obligations,” the major-general said.

We hope to see this trend progress across the country so that the men and women of our Armed Forces are able to adequately protect themselves against those who wish to do them harm.

    This makes be happy. I’m sure OBAMA was said no. If this is true about Oboma I have hope that we can take back our country. If in fact there is marshal law declared our military will be with us and run our president back to Kenya

    Yep that’s a good thing right there. Now we need the rest of the armed forces to follow in those footsteps.

    This article is untrue at this point sadly. An Alaract was put out stating no one is authorized carry of pow until further notice. Hopefully temporary until the wrinkles are ironed out

    They should have never been dis armed to begin with!
