Two veterans are standing outside a recruiting center after the shootings last week in Chattanooga.
The soldiers in the Army career center are not allowed to have guns. An Air Force veteran carrying a loaded AR-15 and an Army veteran carrying a loaded 9 mm handgun are standing outside the center.
“We’re protecting those who protect us,” the veteran said.
The Air Force veteran told WSOC-TV he gave police a heads-up he would be out at the center in case they got calls. WSOC-TV verified that it is legal for him to carry the weapon.
