    I am opposed to a Fed CCW license. If they can tell the states they have to recognize it, they can tell the states that they cannot recognize others.

    As to the danger on a military post does anyone know of an armed attack, except maybe a family member, on a military base in the last 50 years? Boy that is spooky. One attack in history, and I'm afraid to go unarmed.

    Regards,

    Are you serious?
    There are many examples.

    Scorpion has given several examples, but that is not "many" considering the number of bases. If there are in fact many then can you provide the information that leads you to that conclusion?

    I do appreciate the information.

    If concealed carry was based directly on the immediate likelihood of being a victim of violent crime, I suspect most of us wouldn't carry at all. We don't carry because we expect to be attacked at all times, we carry in case of that unlikely scenario.

    Definately, if caught UCMJ would hit hard to make an example of you. It would ceratinly get a spin " The next Hassan (dont use MAJ. in front of that POS name) tragedy MASCAL averted. Good thing is whoever caught you would get an award and a friggin post CG coin.

    That is correct. However, there are degrees of danger or liklihood of being attacked. I am of the opinion that military bases are the safest places in the country that many of us frequent.

    I live 50 miles from the closest base, and a VA hospital. When I go I hate to leave my gun at home due to the travel distance, but I do.
    I have zero concern as to the danger when I get to the VA or post.

    I lived on military bases almost 22 years, and was not concerned with robbery. I also do not remember any robberies, muggings, or shootings during that time.

    Regards,
    Jerry
