It's real simple friend. The Military Installation is not state land, it's Federal land. When you enter on to the Federal Installation you fall under federal laws and edicts. Just that simple. I am a Federal employee. I have a Kansas Concealed carry permit. I must follow the regulations set forth by the Installation commander and secure my weapon and seperate the weapon and ammunition in separate locations. I do this every day when I go to work. Not hard to understand nor comply with, just a pain.
