National Guard to Soldiers At Border: No Personal Weapons, Even Off-Duty
The National Guard personnel should be encouraged to be armed, lawfully, at all times. They should not be made into targets. That's my opinion, and I'm entitled to it under the Constitution!

The feminists don't approve. That's enough for me. On a postitive note, shooting is a fun thing to do.
Shooting is an excellent form of recreation for those so inclined. It can be therapy too. For example, Adm. Chester A. Nimitz shot his .45 every morning during WWII. His doctor prescribed it to cure a case of "nerves," and it worked. (He had a lot on his mind and a heavy workload, and going Galt wasn't an option.)
Fun fact: Two million felonies are stopped - with no shots fired - every year by armed citizens in the USA. Would you rather stop it before it starts, or be a helpless victim?
Life is not a TV show: The brilliant (and improbably good looking) TV detective is not going to kick your door open and apprehend the bad guy before he has his way with you. You need to fend for yourself. The cops will show up later and write a report. Good luck if all you have is your bare hands in the meantime.
