I was stationed in Germany in '60-'61 when we had the Berlin blockade by the reds and we were all issued ammo 24/7 and required to be armed at all times.
I made me wonder why we didn't have ammo all the time.
As a medic, I used to pick up the body parts of GI's that were done in by other GI's fighting over booze and women, and there was some real logic by not arming young draftees in that situation.
Klintoon was the nit wit that made all military bases "gun free zones".

I don't think that arming all soldiers in a base is wise,if one passed the requirements and shows that he/she is sane enough,then whats the harm in issuing sidearms to military personnel?
