Under a 1993 order passed by then-President Bill Clinton, carrying a private firearm on a military base was banned on military bases in the United States. Individuals could privately own firearms if they lived on base, but those firearms could not be carried on the person while on base. This order was revised on Pentagon orders in 2010, and now specifically requires that every private gun brought onto base be registered with the Military Police. The rules also require harsher enforcement of rules forbidding the carrying of private firearms on base.<quoted text>
BS, it was that way when I was in in the 70's and 80's and it was that way before WWII. Soldiers at Schofield Barracks were not armed when they came under attack by the Japanese.
* If George Washington had learned that soldiers under his command had died from a turncoat attack within an American Fort ó not because arms werenít available for his men to defend themselves but because an American officer didnít trust American soldiers to bear arms ó Iím fairly certain that American officer would have been summarily executed by the same firing squad as the turncoat.
