Did You Know John McCain DEFEATED a Move to Arm Our Solders Here at Home?

In June, Sen. Dean Heller tried to get the Pentagon to change its practice of banning arms from our soldiers on bases and recruiting centers here in America.

But according to Heller, his colleague and fellow Republican John McCain was the principal foe of the move — blocking the the arming of our soldiers which ended up having deadly consequences in Chattanooga, Tennessee last week.

Sen. Heller (R-NV)  appeared on the Kevin Wall show on KKFT Carson City, NV, to talk about his bill and noted that Sen. McCain (R-AZ) himself defeated the move to arm our soldiers.

Dean Heller: “So I submitted an amendment in the Department of Defense Authorization bill to allow this to happen. Now this was of course six weeks ago before Chattanooga. And the chairman of the committee wouldn’t support it–by the way, chairman was John McCain–did not want the amendment as part of the bill and wouldn’t accept it.

Unbelievable.

Here is what Heller said on his website about the bill:

Today, U.S. Senator Dean Heller sent a letter to the Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Senate and House Armed Services Committees, requesting that National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) conferees include his amendment to give military base commanders the authority to allow service members to carry personal firearms on base for their personal protection and force protection. In June, Senator Heller offered this amendment during the Senate’s consideration of the Fiscal Year 2016 NDAA. In addition, Senator Heller introduced stand-alone legislation to address this issue critical to the safety of our nation’s service members.

So John McCain made sure that the Marines who died in Chattanooga would not be able to fire back and save lives when a Muslim terrorist attacked.

How’s THAT from a “war hero”?

    McCain has some explaining to do. If this is true, he needs to be held accountable for his actions. McCain is a dinosaur and needs to retire.

  • Vernon Cole

    Reminds me of some of the idiot commanders in Vietnam that required the soldier’s in theirbunits to keep their assigned M-16’s locked up in an arms room. Some shoulders lost their lives in snapper attacks because of those policies.
