Florida Gov. Rick Scott Orders Guard Recruiters To Work From Armory

Gov. Rick Scott ordered Florida National Guard recruiters on Saturday to work from nearby armories after attacks in Tennessee earlier this week killed four Marines and a sailor. In an executive order, the Republican governor said he wants recruiters to move from six storefront locations into armories until state officials can evaluate and make security improvements. Those improvements may include installing bullet-proof glass or enhanced surveillance equipment. A spokeswoman for Scott said the move would occur "immediately." The Army's top officer, Gen. Ray Odierno, said it's too early to say whether the facilities should have security guards or other increased protection.
