Do you wonder why our military personnel are unarmed on US soil? I did. A loyal listener forwarded this article to us. It explains how we got to this point… kind of. Honestly, it doesn’t make much sense and there doesn’t seem to be any rationale to the decision, no “trigger” event (can I say that?) or explanation as to how it even became a topic of discussion.
