Army and Air National Guard members deploying to Washington, D.C. to help guard the capital and stay through the Jan. 20 inauguration will have access to lethal weapons at their commanders' discretion, Guard commanders said Friday.

The airmen are part of a New York force of 1,000 soldiers and airmen who are supporting the District of Columbia National Guard during the 2021 Inauguration of Joseph Biden. A total of 6,200 National Guard soldiers and airmen are supporting law enforcement during this period following the January 6 riot during which the U.S. Capitol was invaded.

치명적 무기로 무장한 주방위군 워싱턴DC에 배치


   워싱턴 D.C.에 배치되어 수도를 지키고 1월 20일 취임식 때까지 주둔하는 육군과 공군 주방위군들은 지휘관의 재량에 따라 살상무기에 접근할 수 있을 것이라고 경비대 지휘관들이 금요일에 말했다.


"군인과 공군 병사들이 그들과 함께 치명적인 무력을 가지고 있다는 사실을 숨길 수 없다."라고 육군 준위가 말했다. 펜실베이니아 주 방위군 합동참모본부장인 데이비드 우드 장군은 국방 기자들과의 가상 원탁에서 이렇게 말했다.


"무력 사용 규칙이 어떻게 적용되는지는 시나리오와 상황에 따라 다르다. 우리는 (무기를 들기 전에) 최대한 사태를 진정시킬 수 있도록 노력할 것이다,"라고 우드는 말했다. "우리가 그것을 배치하는 방법은 상황과 지휘관의 의도에 달려 있다."


AP통신은 이에 앞서 라이언 매카시 육군장관이 수일 내에 경비부대의 지구 거리 무장 여부를 결정할 것이라고 보도한 바 있다.

"There's no hiding the fact that soldiers and airmen do have lethal force with them," Army Brig. Gen. David Wood, joint staff director of the Pennsylvania National Guard, said at a virtual roundtable with defense reporters.

"How those rules of the use of force are engaged is just dependent on the scenario and in that situation. We are going to try to deescalate as much as we can [before taking up weapons]," Wood said. "The way we deploy it will depend on the situation and the commander's intent."


The Associated Press reported earlier that Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy will make decisions in the coming days on whether Guard units will be armed on the District's streets.




Wood joined Army Maj. Gen. Timothy E. Gowen, adjutant general of the Maryland National Guard, and Army Col. Lisa Hou, interim adjutant of the New Jersey National Guard, at a virtual roundtable with defense reporters to describe the issues involved with their emergency deployments to Washington.


All three officers said they already had been planning to send units to the Jan. 20 inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden, but had had to scramble Wednesday, following the pro-Trump mob assault on the Capitol, to resolve problems with the various jurisdictions and command authorities involved.


Because Washington is a federal district and not a state, District Mayor Muriel Bowser does not have authority to call out D.C.'s National Guard on her own as state governors can, but must first request activation from McCarthy.

McCarthy also must coordinate with state governors to bring in National Guard units from outside the District.


As a result, Gowen said, there was initial confusion Wednesday before Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan got clearance. Gowen said he received the order to deploy troops around 5:30 p.m., well after Trump supporters had been cleared from the Capitol building.



Then it was decided with the D.C. National Guard to wait until Thursday morning to bring in the Maryland troops, Gowen said.


"Everyone wants to help right away, but sometimes you can't," Gowen said. "We've got to accept the notion that the National Guard is not a first-responder force."


Gowen said Maryland initially planned to send about 500 troops to the District; Wood said Pennsylvania was sending about 1,000; and Lou said New Jersey was sending 500.
