No guns for Recruiters, Partitions instead

Gen. Brilakis did not say if he’d be replacing service weapons for guards at Quantico with partitions — so as not to make visitors uncomfortable.
“The Pentagon has decided against arming recruiters in the wake of the Chattanooga terror attack that killed five soldiers,” Investor’s Business Daily reports. “Instead of guns, officers will get ‘desk partitions.’”
Marine Corps Commanding General Mark Brilakis says the decision was made because educators, students and parents might not be “comfortable” seeing armed recruiters. As for when military personnel are in their storefront offices, Brilakis says it might also offend the sensibilities of mall shoppers.
