The Armed Services Committees are working together to “do more to protect our troops”
following a deadly shooting on July 16 in Tennessee, according to a statement released Friday.
A recent shooting in Chattanooga, Tenn., which claimed the lives of four Marines at military recruiting stations, has rekindled debate over rules prohibiting members of the military from carrying concealed weapons on military bases.
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which funds the Department of Defense (DoD), for the upcoming fiscal year passed the House on May 15 by a margin of 269 to 151, and the Senate on June 18 by a vote of 71 to 25, but the bills passed were not identical. The House bill included an amendment which would allow for members of the armed forces to carry weapons on military bases.
