    Wow. Four pages.

    Here's a recommended modification which will shorten that down to one sentance:

    "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.


    For some reason, that sounds familiar...

    Regardless, if it were actually written somewhere in law, let alone our Constitution, it would render the Ft. Carson regulation illegal. Since we all know and trust our government, and certainly our military officers, who are sworn to protect our Constution against all enemies foreign and domestic, and would NEVER stoop to endorsing a regulation which violated that oath, the Ft. Carson reg must be legit, right?

    Right?

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    No different at Schriever or Pete or the Acadamy or Cheyenne Mountain. After all, who needs a gun at a military base, say like Ft. Hood...

    Yeah. Our founding fathers got it right. We've endured 235 years of second-guessing, all of whom keep getting it wrong. Hopefully, one of these days, a four-star will wake up and say, "Oh, yeah."

    It's really that simple.

    I'm flabbergasted it hasn't happened in the last 50 years.

    What gets me is that it would be a fairly cheap thing to install lockers at Pass & ID, which is usually located outside the gates, for legal CCW holders to store their weapons. I've known civilian companies to do this, why not the military?? It would be a simple matter of having people register, show their CCW permit (if that was even necessary at all) and issuing them a key for a locker. Simple and painless. . .

    Simple and painless..... well, no, but definitely unnecessary.

    Isn't there a saying in the military (however right or wrong it may be)
    that goes something like:

    "We're here to defend democracy, not to practice it!"

    Maybe it is just a cliche I've heard in movies. But is this not something drill instructors say to recruits?

    Just curious.

    The military is not a democracy and shouldn't be. RHIP and must be respected. As an officer I had privileges enlisted guys didn't. But also responsibilities they never were tagged with. As an aviator, even more so. I think officers should be allowed firearms in their cars, personally. Ft Hood keeps coming to mind.

    A Sgt with a wife a three children is less worthy of having the means to self-defense than the King's officers?

    Most of those shot at Ft. Hood were enlisted personnel and they were shot by an officer.

    Entitlement: Pretty darn tired of that. I thought I read someplace that all men are created equal. I guess after they are born the trouble starts...
    Funny thing is, there are alot of army dudes on post running around with their weapons. Ammo is normally a half mile away, but they have weapons...Trust me, My kid is active Army, and I work on bases, and I'm retired Military...One kid with a few "bullets" could have changed Ft Hood.

    The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is NOT NOW nor has it ever been a democracy--- no matter how many times a teacher, school, or media member may say it... IT IS A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC!
    ALL Democracies are MOB RULE, some may be peace mobs for a while but all are MOB RULE!

    Military Bases

    All military bases are the worlds largest unarmed victim locations. I'm not anti military, just finished 21 years. Only MP's and criminals have guns on base.
