chattanooga strongOn Sunday, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam issued a directive to Adjutant General Max Haston to review security policies and procedures at National Guard armories, storefront recruiting facilities, and other installations and take appropriate steps to ensure the safety of Guardsmen, citizens, and property.
Early Saturday morning a 5th person died from the shooting in Chattanooga. A 24 year-old Navy Petty Officer.
Haslam also instructed the Department of Safety and Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons to evaluate the process for issuing handgun carry permits to trained members of the military and to look for ways to streamline it.
All stateside U.S. military bases and stations are currently at a force protection status of “Bravo,” and General Haston will review with the U.S. Department of Defense all means within this status and the confines of current federal laws and regulations to ensure that facilities in Tennessee are secure.
Governor Haslam will also work with the Tennessee congressional delegation on appropriate solutions at the federal level to secure military buildings.
Concerning the shooter, the president of the Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga says the father of the man accused in Thursday’s shootings apologized to him. He said that the elder Abdulazeez told him he felt blindsided and did not see any recent changes in his son.
