The only reason that arms and equipment are signed for by LE & military personnel is so they don’t sell them for profit. Our government has no trust in the members of the military and is the reason there are no armed personnel on base.
The reason we have drivers licenses is so we can be taxed, not for safety reasons. You probably think cops give out traffic tickets to make the roads safer. Speed tax. Car registration is a tax, boat registration; tax, tax, tax. Do you really think a license requirement make people drive more safely? Half of the drivers around here learned in mexico, can’t read english and need an interpreter at the DOT. But they can pay the tax. I can buy a machine gun if I pay the tax.
BTW The Fort Hood shooter killed un-armed personnel, UNARMED.
