Military bases are gun free zones... Always has been as far back as I can recall. Yes, its ridiculous especially when one considers getting on a C5 with a few hundred soldiers with scary weapons slung on their backs...

Lemme see here. When I was 16YO in the mid 60's I could take a 8Ft rocket loaded with solid fuel onto the base at Ft. Benning Ga, pass thru the entrance gates with my Dependent Pass and my friend who built it and take it out to the range where we would shoot it later that Saturday morning. The MP's at the gate gave use a quick look with their 1911's in their holsters with no mags in the guns and we were out to the range. I was an Army Brat that knew the Post top to bottom and knew my way around it. Later in life I went back several times including my first USPSA Range Officer training program at the Infantry School Building where we used Blue Guns. As it turns out this was the same building that I taught a portion of the Infantry School Radio Maintenance program as the youngest and only Civilian Attendee of the course as my father was an instructor for the course. I also shot a Glock Competetion course just around the corner at a range from the Infantry School Building later. I do not have an issue with taking guns onto that Military Compound. The check in station is now off to the right of Victory Drive and the base is open.

What about us civilians who work on base? I know the rule will never get changed as installation commanders dont want to have to deal with a shooting (justified or not) but we should be allowed to carry at least in our cars. Just saying, not whining.

Doesn't really matter what anyone's thoughts are on this topic...yours, mine, whoever. DOD makes the rules, and under UCMJ members are compelled to comply or risk big trouble. As you probably know, being in the armed forces is a bit different from civilian life. You do live by a different set of rules and laws, especially on a post or base. If you want to carry, get your COLA and find a place off base; that's about your only choice.
