ARMED VOLUNTEERS Refuse to Abandon Military Recruitment Centers Despite Pentagon Request (VIDEO)

US Navy veteran Tim Keown has been standing guard outside a recruitment center in Kentucky for a week now.

Tim made the decision to guard the local recruitment center after an Islamic terrorist murdered five servicemen in Chattanooga last week. Keown also helped organize other armed guards at recruitment centers across the country.

Ordinary citizens are filling the breach left by an inept government.

The Pentagon released a statement on Friday asking citizens not to stand guard at the unprotected recruiting offices. But the Pentagon has no plans on changing policy that forbids servicemen and women from carrying weapons at the centers. Evidently, five dead servicemen is not enough to force change in Pentagon policy.

Tim Keown says his group will remain outside the recruitment offices until the US soldiers and Marines are protected:

“If our government is not going to protect these men and women, who is?… Who’s going to protect these gentlemen and women if we don’t?… All I’m asking is why can’t recruiters arm themselves and protect themselves?
