Fox News had this article on the evaluation that the Air Force did on arming Air Force personnel.  Perry Chiaramonte has this article:

A review of active shooter cases by the Air Force has confirmed what gun rights advocates have long been saying: Firearms in the hands of good guys are often the best bet for stopping massacres.

The military branch earlier this month sent out a letter to its base commanders around the nation reminding them that they can authorize subordinates to carry guns, even while off-duty and out of uniform. . . .

Military.com reported on a new Air Force study:

A spokeswoman said the data came from the FBI, and cannot be released by the Air Force. . . .
