TEXAS NATIONAL GUARD2

By Bob Price

CAMP SWIFT, Texas — The Texas National Guard (TNG) has reversed its previously stated position about guardsmen being allowed to carry personal weapons when off duty during the deployment to the border region under Operation Strong Safety. Texas Adjutant General, Major General John Nichols, confirmed the change in policy during a press conference where it was revealed the deployment of TNG soldiers and airmen had already begun.

Breitbart Texas reported on August 20th that the TNG Staff Judge Advocate’s office had briefed guardsmen they would not be allowed to carry personal weapons while off duty during the deployment, even if they had a concealed carry license or were a certified peace officer in their civilian professional duties. Responding to a question from Breitbart Texas as to if this policy had been changed, General Nichols said, “Actually, that was a federal policy we were looking at. We have applied the state laws so they can.”

“The main thing is,” Nichols explained, “I don’t want personal firearms on duty. We have duty weapons for that and duty weapons training.”

“It is the right of Texas citizens, if they’re allowed to,” he concluded, “…carry firearms when they are not on duty.”

When we first reported that the guardsmen would not be allowed to carry weapons I thought it was ridiculous and I am glad to hear that this has been reversed.
