Noted a few days ago on FR in:
It is a damn shame that since 1993 we have not had a Conservative in the White House who could have overturned that Clinton ban.
I thought the reg was older than that ..... more pure genius that just keeps on giving, from DIRTXPOTUS.
What an ideological scumbag.
How about instead, "All officers and NCO's above E-6 will be armed at all times in garrison"?
Even if it's only a Kel-Tec belly gun with a five-round mag.
Great idea, but Hussein is more likely to order civi cops to police bases than arm the soldiers - the more of them gone - by whatever means - the better for him. If Husssein had not inherited the wars, he would likely push for more base closings and drastically reduce the armed forcces to Canada size.
This for sure:
1. There will be more killing on U.S. Soil.
2. There will be more PC and BS from DR. PHIL.
3. There will be more gun control on our bases.
4. There will a terrible incident which will serve as a pretext for a cancellation of the 2010 election.
Nothing short of a revolution!
I didn’t know about President Clinton’s action in 1993, I retired in 1986. Someone educate me.
I first saw military weapons secured under lock and key in 1965. Our rifles had been kept in rifle racks in our barracks. One day a sergeant came in and rigged a chain and lock to secure them. In early 1966 they were secured in arms rooms. When I returned from overseas in 1970 both military and private owned weapons were secured in arms rooms. A soldier had to have his commander’s permission to checkout his personally owned weapon. In Virginia a soldier could not purchase a firearm without the commander’s permission.
What change did Clinton make?
Q: Why don’t you shop at the base exchange?
A: Exchange prices are no lower than at Walmart.
Q: But at least there is no sales tax at the base.
A: Walmart let’s customers be armed. Which is more importent to you?
Clinton should be brought up on charges of denying the soldiers rights and negligent homicide.
America is under attack by terrorists. Army bases are big targets. Our soldiers need to be able to protect themselves ! Give them back their guns !!!
I’m pretty sure the reg is older than that.
