(Before It's News)


In a press release issued on July 18, Texas Governor Abbott announced he will authorize the Adjutant General John Nichols of the Texas National Guard to arm all National Guard personnel at military facilities across Texas.

This order comes following the recent shooting at two military facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that resulted in the deaths of four United States Marines and one Navy Sailor.

“It is with a heavy heart that I issue this order,” said Governor Abbott. “After the recent shooting in Chattanooga, Tennessee, it has become clear that our military personnel must have the ability to defend themselves against these types of attacks on our own soil. Arming the National Guard at these bases will not only serve as a deterrent to anyone wishing to do harm to our service men and women, but will enable our Texas National Guard personnel to protect those living and working on the base.”

  • I’m normally hating all politicians, but Greg Abbott is starting to make me like him.
