In West Virginia, 2 armed men stand outside recruiting center

Legislation is being introduced that would allow members of the military, like those who perished in Thursday shooting at the U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center, to carry weapons.

PRINCETON, W.Va. -- Calling themselves patriots, two armed men stationed themselves outside a military recruiting center in southern West Virginia following the attacks on military personnel in Chattanooga.

The Bluefield Daily Telegraph said the two were armed with AR-15s Tuesday as they stood outside the Armed Forces Career Center in Princeton.

The newspaper said the men declined to give their names but allowed a photographer to take their picture.

They said they were showing their support for local members of the Armed Forces.

Four Marines and a sailor were killed at two military facilities in the Tennessee attacks last week.
