In 2016, Mark Milley, who was then the Army Chief of Staff, stated, "Arming our people on our military bases and allowing them to carry concealed privately owned weapons, I do not recommend that as a course of action." With regard to a 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood, TX where an Army psychiatrist shouted "Allahu Akbar!" and proceeded to murder 13 people and injure 42 others, Milley argued that the "police responded within eight minutes, so that's pretty quick." He added, "I am not convinced from what I know that carrying privately owned weapons would have stopped that individual." When asked about destroying the weaponry that the Biden administration left to the Taliban, Milley replied, "We obviously have capabilities, but I'd prefer not to discuss any operations other than what we are doing right now in order to get our evacuation out and get that complete."
