Yes and no. My soldiers loved to tell me how their residence was off limits because it was where "their family lived". The tune changed when I had
them moved back into the barracks and restricted to post (by my commander). The government pays for off base housing same as on base housing.
I am not a gun control advocate. I was a leader and a soldier's house should be inspected for livability, safety, and cleanliness, the same as those
on base. That being said the inspections are FAR different between homes and barracks rooms (inspections are different for Privates and Sergeants too
for obvious reasons).
Gun registry for soldiers is common in my experience.
ETA - Barracks rooms are inspected daily in good units, weekly or less in shoddy units. Housing for married soldiers (or tose living on or off base)
is generally inspected semi-annually (in theory). Check you Command Policy Letters. The unit is required to keep a book and inspection policy will be
there in black and white.
