In the, is this for real files Obama says he will sign a bill which will allow firearms to be carried on base? A RARE OUTBREAK OF SANITY: Military May Soon Be Able to Pack Heat on Base. "Support for expanded concealed carry privileges on stateside bases is equally high among all branches of the service. Those in the reserves are slightly more supportive of this proposal than those on full-time active duty or who are retired. An amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) would allow service personnel to carry concealed weapons, and President Obama indicated this afternoon that he would indeed sign the bill into law once it arrives on his desk." I certainly hope this doesn't raise visibility and thus a veto. As the article states, we'll believe it when we see it.
