Still hasn't happened. Oh, they "opened it up" to certain specialties such as law enforcement, who already carry on base as a part of their duties.
What Congress doesn't realize is that bad guys go after soft targets, not hard targets. Why do mass shootings like Hassan's (Ft. Hood) happen in places like hospitals, theaters, schools, and... Wait for it... Military recruiting stations?
ALL U.S. military personnel are TARGETS. Congress, you are NOT protecting our service members by DISARMING them. You are doing a GRAVE disservice by infringing on our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Our Second Amendment does NOT say "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, 'except while on federal property.' " It says, "...shall not be infringed," PERIOD.
Do not think for ONE SECOND, Congress, that We the People have forgotten about you during this 2016 election cycle. Because SO MUCH blood has been spilled as a direct result of idealistic idiots hamstringing our ability to defend ourselves, WE ARE WATCHING YOU. Most of you only pay lip service to our Second Amendment. That's OK, as WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE, and have lined up your Constitution-respecting replacements.
ALL United States Citizens has the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms EVERYWHERE. There are no Constitutional limits placed on our right to keep and bear arms. The ONLY Constitutional limit is placed against who would curb our right to keep and bear arms, and that limit specifically states, "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
Given current threats of domestic enemies/terrorists (New Black Panther and Black Lives Matter) and foreign enemies/terrorists (Al Quaeda, ISIS, Islamic extremists), there's absolutely ZERO excuse for un-Constitutionally disarming We the People.
Again, members of Congress: We know who you are, and we are taking action to replace everyone in Congress who refuses to FULLY enforce our Second Amendment's prohibition against ANY infringement on our right to keep and bear arms. That includes while on all federal property and especially while in uniform.

Soldiers are bullet catchers. That's the hard cold fact ... pawns used by .govs to do their bidding.
Why anyone joins anymore is a mystery.
Some of the problem is Congress, but a larger percentage of it is the bureaucracy of the military itself. From the people I talk to both in the service and recently out of it, some of whom are involved with DoD, VA, and other related stuff, they say it's a matter of PC indoctrinated or enslaved base CO's and Pentagon political butt-kissers. They're either loyal to the anti gun cause or afraid of those above them who are.
The services are not the same as they used to be....that's for sure. They get paid way too much now, I think that this is part of the problem.
I don't vote for administrative "judges"...part of the executive branch.
I don't vote for who is on any particular legislative committee; indeed I only can vote for people who live near me in many of my state elections...in whacked out gerrymandered areas (like first amendment zones).
Heck, I did not even have a say in who the government was formed.
But I work with what I got ... my rights ... my rights are my friend, I always keep them close.
And they "system" is what it is ... it allows change. I do work within the "system" much to the chagrin of those in power. I also work outside the system.
I'm am Cicero ... though not as smart...more a blunt instrument.
And yes I have run for office ... many times.
Good. I hope that includes both writing and calling members of Congress.I do work within the "system" much to the chagrin of those in power. I also work outside the system.
Here's on link to one of my senators viewpoint on gun control... https://www.murphy.senate.gov/issues/gun-violence
When I told him that I had nothing to do with Sandy Hook children being murdered and was not sorry for it or felt any responsibility for it he got all indignant ... like I have to attach that guy's sins to me.
At a quasi-judicial hearing I had the assit attny general spoke of the Sandy Hook shooting ... I told 'em that I felt that I was not responsible for what happened there and had nothing to do with it, so why should I feel sorry. The AAG's response? Just called me a monster...on the record.
Don't equate "sorry" with "sorrow" ... on speaks to responsibility and the other to empathy .. totally different.
Want a lizzard to lose his mind? Tell them that you are not responsible for gun deaths and that you are not sorry over them.

I don't confuse people with facts ... I do not argue about "studies" relating to the goodness or evilness of guns as many, who are free to do so, do. All these studies are irrelevant ... we have the RBKA and that is all that is important.
There is a difference between you and me though....I see all gun laws as void whereas you do not. You may see some laws as needing to be changed but you do accept the current laws as having legal effect.
Perhaps it is the different viewpoints that lead to different methodologies. I have had my successes as I'm sure you have too.
