A military commander at Fort Campbell in Kentucky demanded his soldiers give him the registration numbers of any guns they own privately and then reveal where they are stored.

The order was stopped, according to base officials, when it was discovered the commander was not "acting within his authority.

" The original order was issued on the letterhead of Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment and said effective March 11, any soldier with a "privately owned weapon" was required to submit the information, along with any information about any concealed carry permit the soldier may have, and what state issued... snip

Further, the rule warned, "If any soldier comes into possession of a Privately Owned Weapon following the effective date of this memorandum, he is required to inform the Chain of Command of the above information."

One soldier who objected to the demands circulated the memo, commenting that he lives off post.


"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," the soldier said.

Sorry, folks, but one misguided company commander (a Captain) does comprise "the military".

I am curious though as to what this guy thought to prove with this information . . . . Why did he want to know? Who did he intend to share that info with? to what ends? Hows come reporters never ask the REAL questions?????

WND has reporters? :p

Seems they're more into fabricating a new conspiracy theory to me.

Good point. One of the reasons I don't ever read their articles. The National Inquirer has a better track record when it comes to facts . . . .
