I've noticed, since (former) Major N. Hassan went on his spree, that many people are under the impression that military bases are armed camps. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, military bases are highly regulated in weapons possession; it only takes one incident to ruin some officer's career, so like so many other things in the military, the easy route is to institute so many restrictive rules for possession that it's more of a pain in the ass to comply than to do without for the average person. An excellent example of this is found here, at an Army post of all places. Perhaps they hired little Chuckie Bloomer to do this poster also? Fifteen years ago, I saw a whole display produced by Handgun Control, Inc. at an Air Force base in South Dakota in a hospital entrance. There's a lot of individual soldiers who enjoy and support private arms ownership. Just remember there's also a lot of brass that view the military as a corporation with matching suits, expensive toys, and a large number of drones who should shut up and do as their told.
