Lt. Col. Allen West today called for an executive order to end gun-free zones at military facilities in the United States.
West said that a series of attacks within the U.S. has shown that military personnel are in danger, citing the 2009 Arkansas recruiting office shooting, the Fort Hood massacre, and yesterday’s attacks on two Tennessee military sites.
Authorities say that 24-year-old Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez gunned down four Marines in Chattanooga yesterday before he was fatally shot by police.
“The battlefield is here,” West said. “And it’s just a simple act of leadership, a change in policy to enable [military personnel] to be able to defend themselves.”
West said that President Barack Obama should issue an executive order today to get rid of gun-free zones on military sites.
