Del. Moffatt calls on Gov. Tomblin to lower flags, increase security

Charleston, W.Va. – Delegate Michael G. Moffatt (R-Putnam) is calling on Governor Tomblin to order all state flags at state-owned facilities to be lowered to half-staff in honor of the six fallen soldiers who were tragically killed in Chattanooga, Tennessee on July 16. 

He is also asking that members of the National Guard be armed for self-protection.  

In response to this tragedy, the Governors of  Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas have ordered their flags to be flown at half-staff and have also taken extra security precautions that include allowing their guardsman to be armed.
