Florida – The right to keep and bear arms is sacrosanct in our republic. We also recognize that self-defense is a natural right and an individual responsibility. It is our position that members of our Armed Forces should not be denied of these constitutional and natural rights simply because he or she finds himself or herself on a military installation.

We also realize that there are unique issues dealt with by military commanders regarding the security of sensitive areas and maintaining good order and discipline.

Military commanders should use extreme caution when limiting these rights of the brave men and women under their command, and should do so only when absolutely necessary to secure extremely sensitive areas which are secured by an on-site Quick Reaction Force and only as necessary to ensure order and discipline within the ranks.

As such, we support the U.S. Naval Aviators who have requested permission of their command to exercise their right to bear arms in defense of themselves and our nation.  No service member should ever find themselves in harm’s way unarmed due to a general reluctance of their commanders.  Disarming any of the brave men and women of our military should be the exception, not the rule.
