Pentagon to Clarify Arms Rules for Military Personnel

The Indian Express reports that “the Pentagon has unveiled plans to grant military commanders more authority to arm service members, one year after a deadly attack on military facilities in the southern United States.”  

“The rampage at military installations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, prompted Congress to ask President Barack Obama’s administration to loosen current regulations that bar US soldiers from carrying arms off of their bases unless specifically assigned to do so for security reasons.”  

“The Defence Department plans to publish a revision to the arms policy ‘within a couple of months,’ said Major Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman.”
