Email Sent to KnowTheLies...Soldier Reports Army Demands List of Personal Firearms! (dated March 11, 2009)

Gentlemen, I am an 11B [Infantryman] 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... (dated March 11, 2009)

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 possess. 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 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 aregistration 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.

We contacted the soldier and asked to see a copy of the Army memo. Sure enough, we got it. The memo appears below (Click on the link below for this HOT DOC...)
