Florida – -(AmmoLand.com)- The right to keep and bear arms is sacrosanct in our republic. We also recognize that self-defense is a natural right and individual responsibility.

It is our position that members of our Armed Forces should not be denied of these constitutional and natural rights simply because he or she finds himself or herself on a military installation.

We also realize that there are unique issues dealt with by military commanders regarding the security of sensitive areas and maintaining good order and discipline.

Military commanders should use extreme caution when limiting these rights of the brave men and women under their command and should do so only when absolutely necessary to secure extremely sensitive areas that are secured by an on-site Quick Reaction Force and only as necessary to ensure order and discipline within the ranks.

As such, we support the U.S. Naval Aviators who have requested permission of their command to exercise their right to bear arms in defense of themselves and our nation. No service member should ever find themselves in harm's way unarmed due to a general reluctance of their commanders.

Disarming any of the brave men and women of our military should be the exception, not the rule.

The base commander and those above him knew that the potential for the base to become a terrorist target was very high. Yet, they chose to put their servicemen in harms way without any means of defending themselves. All I can say, is shame on them. BTW, I went through flight training at the base, so this incident hit close to home.

unfortunately when you enlist into the military you do lose some of your civil rights and are governed by the ucmj which generally follows the Constitution and Bill of Rights with some exceptions. although they can keep and bear arms off base they cannot carry them on base and are forced to be defenseless until they get back home. it is a shame that as people who actually do defend America from foreign enemies are not able to defend themselves from domestic ones. does anyone remember ft. hood? it will happen again until minds are changed.

George H.W. Bush signed the order disarming servicemen in 1992.

Maybe Trump will turn the tide.

And no carve-outs for officers and NCO’s.
