Last Friday, Governor Pete Ricketts authorized Major General Daryl Bohac to arm personnel as he deems necessary at National Guard installations:
“Susanne and I send our condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in last week’s tragic shooting in Tennessee. This authorization extends additional protections to our servicemen and women who need every resource we can provide them to defend themselves and our National Guard installations.”
“As a part of our efforts to constantly evaluate our state’s security measures, the Nebraska National Guard continues to look at what we might do differently, so that our state takes appropriate steps to protect our military members, their families, and the public.”
Your NRA would like to thank Gov. Ricketts for having the men and women who defend our country in his thoughts and taking the appropriate action to ensure their safety. There is no reason why those trained and sworn to bear arms in defense of our Nation and our Constitution shouldn’t be able to defend themselves while at National Guard installations.
