COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley has signed an executive order to put armed members of the South Carolina National Guard on guard at the branch’s recruiting centers.

Haley’s order on Monday calls for enhanced security at the Guard’s storefront recruiting centers and other facilities and training for armed members to stand guard.

The executive order identifies the killings of service members last month in Chattanooga, Tenn., as a motivation for the order.

Other states have taken similar steps since the shootings.
