Department of Defense Directive 5210.66 is the regulation that disarms military personnel on military installations. Click here for the full document that disarmed United States military members and civilians on base.
Here’s the relevant bit . . .
The authorization to carry firearms shall be issued only to qualified personnel when there is a reasonable expectation that life or DoD assets will be jeopardized if firearms are not carried. Evaluation of the necessity to carry a firearm shall be made considering this expectation weighed against the possible consequences of accidental or indiscriminate use of firearms.
Given the attack at Fort Hood and, now, the Washington Navy Yard, can we assume that there’s a reasonable expectation that life or DoD assets will be jeopardized if firearms are not carried?
Obama's Secretary of Defense is keeping American Military bases about as safe as a shopping mall in Kenya by not revoking this idiotic directive.
