Better yet, let's simply stop treating them as if they are somehow less capable than any other citizen, and allow them the same concealed carry rights as anyone else.
I am curious, though. Why do you believe they would need "a little more" training to carry concealed? Why do they need any more training than anyone else to qualify for a concealed carry license?A clerk at Walmart can go take a concealed carry class, get a license, and carry 'til the cows come home. But a soldier needs "a little more" training to carry? Really?
DavidWhen I say a little more training, what they get in the military is an M9 and 2 mags if they make enough hits they pass, If they take the same course as civilians or the military offers something similar is what I meant.
I'm just saying that anyone, military or civilian, who lives or works on a military base...should be able to carry concealed if they have a permit issued by the state the base is in.Ex: I live in El Paso, Texas, and have a Texas concealed carry license. I should be able to carry on Ft. Bliss.True story: When my battalion was deployed to Korea, it was not a normal tour, and spouses were left at Ft. Bliss. The wife of a friend of mine was home alone in post housing when she discovered a burglar coming in the bathroom window. She screamed, and he backed out the window and ran. What if he hadn't? She was not permitted a firearm to defend herself.The ban on firearms on base affects soldiers, but it affects families, too. It's not just mass shootings; crime happens on military bases, just like any other town. Let them all get concealed carry.
I agree with you David
