    Does anyone know if there is any truth to it?







    Gentlemen,
    I am an 11B currently assigned at Fort Campbell. I live off post, with my firearms(which I don't bring on post for any reason). A very frightening thing happened at work yesterday. I was ordered to fill out a list containing my firearm information. This included make, model, caliber, and serial number of all firearms I currently posses. In addition, I was also required to list registration information, location of all weapons individually, and information regarding any CCW permits I posses. 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 aproachable through proper channels) to find out what this is for, and I was basically told, "I don't give a ! mailto:%21&@%25 &@%, 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.

    sounds like bs to me.....

    i dont even bother with any sort of personal info sheets of any kind since they inevitably get lost and you have to fill them out again in two months anyway

    i thought this was only required for personal firearms being stored in the arms room

    if you reside off post, you do not have to declare any of your personal items.
    they did not list a reason why the information was needed or anything of relevance.

    I would say it's BS

    Not necessarily true. Could be part of some hairbrained safety initiative.

    true but it sounds like there hasn't been much of a JAG involvement. lots of unanswered questions

    1. Who was the driving force behind the policy? post commander, Ft Rucker safety guys? local commander?

    2.what happens when you purchase a new firearm, is there a limit of time required before you have to declare the item?

    3.what happens if you do not declare anything but are caught owning a weapon?

    4. PCS involvement?

    Unknown. All I know is that my POW is in the Company Arms room right now because New York has some of the worst Gun Laws in the Country. It *WAS* a brand new Glock. I shudder to think of the condition it is in now.

    i'm at Campbell and I haven't filled out such a form....the only reason you would ever need to fill out anything remotely similar to that is if you plan on bringing it on post to use the POW range or to store it in the Arms room as previously stated.
