ALL ACTIVE DUTY MEMBERS HEADS UP!!!!
I am an 11B currently assigned at Fort Campbell. I live off post, with
my firearms (which I don't bring on post for any reason). A very
frightening thing happened at work yesterday. I was ordered to fill out
a list containing my firearm information. This included make, model,
caliber, and serial number of all firearms I currently posses. In
addition, I was also required to list registration information, location
of all weapons individually, and information regarding any CCW permits I
posses. If you are like me, then the people you work with know you have
firearms. So I had to list at least some. I tried to talk to my 1sg (who
is normally approachable through proper channels) to find out what this
is for, and I was basically told, "I don't give a !&@%, just put your
info on the form."
I don't know how high this goes, but I am hearing that this is going on
in other units at Fort Campbell as well. It just seems a little
coincidental to me that within 90 days: the most anti-firearm President
in history is inaugurated, some of the nastiest anti-firearm laws are
put on the table in Washington, and then the Army comes around wanting
what amounts to a registration on all firearms, even if they are off
post, and doesn't provide any reason or purpose as to why. I fear
something really nasty is blowing in the wind here. I have been in
almost 8 years, and never have any of my units asked for this
information. If any of you out there have any info as to what all this
crap is about please chime in. Otherwise consider
yourself warned. I have already posted this on every other firearm forum I
am a member of to get the word out.
Here it is folks. Time to write your congress critters.
