    Same same in the Army. But, in all fairness, Catawba's source was refering to privately owned firearms, being kept by soldiers who live off post.

    Oh, the guy in our unit was in in 1980's. My son is now at 29 Palms. Semper Fi.

    My condolences. No Stumps for me, thanks.

    Did he get the word yet that he's stuck on the West Coast for at least 10 years? Apparently they're going to stop approving cross-country PCS except in particular and identified circumstances (there are only so many infantry battalions to command, etc).

    Confiscating private firearms from soldier isn't going to to keep them from killing themselves. What's next? Are all the bed sheets in the barracks going to be taken away because a soldier could hang himself?

    The United States military has the authority to put troops into protective custody, if there's a concern that they will harm themselves. If that's not what's being done, then there are some clowns in the Pentagon that are allowing soldiers to off themselves and doing nothing about it, for political reasons.

    If the anti-gunners REALLY gave two hoots about our servicemen, they would demand that the heads of the people not excercising that authority should roll. But, we all know it has nothing to do with the troops and more to do with politics.
    Military personnell fall under the purview of the UCMJ and not the constitution.

    HE just got orders to another unit. Still on 29 Palms. He is not real happy.

    I think you are wrong. When you are active duty, they own you 24/7.

    The service member. I know for sure when MP arrested someone out in town they had to take along local officers in case there were civilians involved or got involved. But yes, if you are in the service you are under the UCMJ and the same laws as a civilian 24/7 if you are in town.

    Yes, but the residences themselves do not. So, for example, I cannot commit adultery out in town (illegal under the UCMJ), but I can keep a weapon. I simply cannot take that weapon onto base, so when a psycho major runs into an office building, screams allahu akbar, and begins to mow down my brothers and sisters, the best I can do is maybe make alot of noise and distract him while wishing that I had just broken the law, and gone armed.
