LEONARDTOWN, MD. — The Maryland State Police in St. Mary’s County are taking nothing to chance with a terrorist attack on the Armed Forces recruiting center. First Sgt. John Vanhoy told THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY that his troopers are intensifying patrols in and near the joint services recruiting center located on Rt. 235.
Federal law restricts the arming of service members at many military locations which has led to fatal shootings of soldiers, sailors and marines at locations in Little Rock, Arkansas; Fort Hood, Texas and on July 16, 2015 in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The FBI arrested a man planning to bomb the recruiting center in Catonsville, Md., in 2010 and the man was later convicted. All four of these incidents involve radical Islamic terrorists, which the Obama Administration refuses to label terror attacks. For the first time, the U. S. Attorney in Tennessee called the Chattanooga attack which killed four marines and injured three others as being a terrorism attack “until proven otherwise”.
ISIS has boasted that they would attack American soldiers at recruiting centers and these warnings have yet to change any protection for soldiers at American facilities but the politicians in the White House, Congress, State Capitols and City Halls across America have elaborate concrete barriers, guard posts, armed guards, metal detectors and security cameras to protect themselves from terrorists.
American service members, fully trained in safe firearm use, are protected only by silly signs proclaiming “Gun Free Zone”. While ISIS carries out extensive attacks on three continents, President Barack Hussein Obama sends out sorties of American aircraft that basically are few and far between with little effect on the terror army.
