Another major U.S. military base is requiring soldiers who live off the premises to provide descriptions, serial numbers, calibers, makes and models of any of the guns they own privately, and do not take onto the premises of the installation.

According to a copy of a "Weapons Registration Form" submitted to WND by a soldier from Fort Bliss in Texas, the soldiers have to provide their own information including Social Security number, a physical description and addresses and telephone numbers, along with the serial number, type, action, make, caliber, finish, location stored, model, overall length and barrel description of each weapon they own.

Base public information officer Jean Offutt told WND that registration of privately owned weapons is suggested and recommended, but there's no enforcement procedures available to the military if someone chooses not to submit that off-post information. ...<snip>...

Well of course the big O wants to know who has a private stash among his warriors. 

Aren't Vets just ripe for terrorist pickins? Ya know it says a lot about a regime when the reining dictator democratically elected President and friends are concerned about their own forces turning on them.

I'm wondering if this is a mis-report or a new item. This happened at Ft Campbell a few months ago, with the base stating the order was issued by an overzealous officer.
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. "

Same ole same ole.

1) Issue order
2) Enforce compliance
3) Apologize once all info has been gathered

This was an isolated event.  They do this one base at a time so they can say that. :tinfoil:

One way to head these incidents off would be to contact the PAO at the major bases and ask if, in light of the Ft. Campbell and Ft. Bliss incidents, if this is an Army wide plan with Campbell and Bliss as trial balloons. Be sure to mention a possible congressional investigation. :)

I can tell you from experience, the last thing the brass at any base wants is a Congressman digging through their business. The mere hint of that possibility will get a CG in high gear. I think I will contact Senators Cornyn and Hutchinson on this issue, and thier Oaths to the Constitution. They support our troops, right?
