Carter Fights To Protect Those Who Protect Us

(WASHINGTON, D.C.)- Congressman John Carter (R-TX31) issued the following statement regarding the recent terrorist attack at the Chattanooga, Tennessee military facility.

“I am deeply saddened and disturbed by the recent events that unfolded in Chattanooga. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those Marines who paid the ultimate sacrifice while serving our great nation, and with those who were injured. There have been far too many incidences where we have had to mourn the loss of a soldier or civilian due to shootings on military bases. These events could have been prevented.”

“In May, an amendment I proposed passed the House and was included within the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to allow service members to conceal carry on military installations. After the tragedies at Ft. Hood, I saw the need to empower installation commanders to decide what policy is best and who should be allowed to carry a concealed weapon for their personal or force protection. I have the utmost confidence in our senior military leadership and the soldiers who serve and I trust they will use this new authority to improve security and prevent future tragedies.”


Rep. Carter represents Texas District 31, which includes Fort Hood, the largest military installation in the free world. He serves as Chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Appropriations, is on the Subcommittee for Commerce, Justice and Science and the Defense Subcommittee.
