I received this from an Atlas reader. And no, I am not buying the "suicide" angle, as if it's for the soldiers' good. You don't need a gun to kill yourself, and frankly, if those evil forces want to sell an idea, it would be sold as something that "was for the good of the soldiers". Knowing what we know about President Hussein, he despises our military and holds them in as great contempt, as he does great Americans and patriots.
Where is the damn NRA on this?
If you are like me, then the people you work with know you have firearms. So I had to list at least some. I tried to talk to my 1sg(who is normally approachable through proper channels) to find out what this is for, and I was basically told, "I don't give a !&@%, just put your info on the form."
I don't know how high this goes, but I am hearing that this is going on in other units at Fort Campbell as well. 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. I fear something really nasty is blowing in the wind here.
I have been in almost 8 years, and never have any of my units asked for this information. If any of you out there have any info as to what all this crap is about please chime in. Otherwise consider yourself warned. I have already posted this on every other firearm forum I am a member of to get the word out.
The Firearm Owner Protection Act:. What happened to this?
Obama uses the Constitution for toilet paper.
UPDATE: According to WND, this order was reversed. Military readers, please keep me posted. (hat tip Atlas readers)
