It is a World Gone Mad
- Our government disarms our soldiers making them sitting ducks for terrorists. Now we see armed citizens having to protect the unarmed soldiers.
- What fucking Twilight Zone episode have I entered?
(Daily Times Four Corners News) - A group of five armed men stood in a line outside the military recruiting center in Farmington on Wednesday to "protect those who protect us," they said.
The men took to watching over the parking lot following a deadly shooting last week in Chattanooga, Tenn., where five service men were killed.
After reading about a man in Virginia who went to guard a recruiting station following the shooting, James Maxwell took his gun to the Farmington substation.
Across the country, citizens have decided to guard the recruiting centers. A group known as the 3% of Idaho has guarded centers in Montana and Idaho while a group known as Operation Hero Guard is stationed outside a recruiting center in Cleburne, Texas.
Maxwell said a shooting like the one in Chattanooga could happen anywhere.
"They weren't expecting anything to happen in Chattanooga," he said.
Currently, recruiting centers are a gun-free zones.
"They're sitting ducks here," Maxwell said.
While Maxwell originally stood alone as he guarded the recruiting center, he has been joined by other men, including Army veteran James Gardenhire.
The two of them stood Wednesday with three men who identified themselves as Travis, Adam and Michael. They declined to give their last names, citing negative attention.
"People are saying we shouldn't be here," Maxwell said. "They're 100 percent right."
He said the government should be providing adequate protection for people going to recruiting centers, such as posting armed members of the National Guard outside of centers.
Sgt. 1st Class Joshua Didier, the center leader at the U.S. Army recruiting center in Farmington, said recruiters have been instructed not to acknowledge or interact with the civilians and to let the police know the men are there.Read More . . . .
