Preventing all members of the military from carrying guns at recruiting stations makes them a vulnerable target for those who wish to harm them. Letting officers and NCOs to carry weapons gives them tools to protect against attacks like Chattanooga.
This bill is an overreaction to relatively isolated incidents. There aren’t very many attacks on recruiting centers, and arming military personnel could have the unintended consequence of endangering more people caught in the crossfire.
