Having served for 27 years in both the Navy & the Army I've come to the conclusion that members of our Military are treated as second class citizens or worse. We're not to be trusted unless we're on the battleground & even then our present ROE shows a big distrust of our fighting troops. As a First Sgt. I had to implement some of the rules that proved that distrust as distasteful as that was.

"Dogs and (Soldiers, Marines, Sailors - fill in the blank) Keep Off the Grass".

Enlisted Personnel Must Be Seen and Not Heard. If they're seen they damn well better look good. That goes for Eltee, too.

Unless of course those enlisted are members of the USCG. If an aircraft carrier hoists the Coast Guard Ensign it's then under authority of the USCG and there are cases where an E-4 could have command at the time. I hope to God they do look good when they do.

Unfortunately, yes you do need a Purchase Permit or a Concealed Carry Permit to Legally purchase a handgun in a private sale in North Carolina.

You are right, it sucks. On the other hand, it is the C.O. or respective service that catches the "fallout" when one of their less stellar personnel steps out of line on or off base. Gotta love the military. As my First Sergeant was fond of saying, "Just because they wear white hats doesn't make them one of the good guys."

To get my CC permit in Alabama, it took my ID card and 5 minutes in the sheriff's office. Trying to get a fishing license across the street took 15 minutes of intense negotiation. They are serious about their Bass!

Just wanted to mention the Utah nonres cwp is awesome as well. I live in sc and have that one but tonight I take the class for Utah adds more states of reciprocity. It works out I'll be able to carry a gun nearly anywhere you're actually allowed to own one....

I was a former soldier, and that kind of bullshit still angers me.

There is no reason why a any institution outside of the military require you to be hassled more for you being in military service.

In the AF they did not care what kind of gun we had as long as we registered it with the security police if we lived on base, off base no worries, no register, and we only had to go buy what the state laws were.

I would absolutely would have a problem. First off I answer to my manager only in as much as my job is concerned. Therefore they are not entitled in any way, shape or form to any input in my desire to own a firearm.

I find it ridiculous that an one can volunteer or be drafted into the military, be handed a M16 or M60 and M9 and sent into combat, yet be required to get "permission" to buy a firearm.
