RV with firearms

I did a search for information on this, within the group. I came up with two links and both were outdated. Any one know what the current rules are if you stay at a "on base RV camp ground".

Almost every military base requires all private firearms be checked in with the security police/armory. It's no problem, just a bit of a hassle to take your weapons to the armory and get a receipt. This is the main rule for almost all bases. Some have said "no weapons at all". Of course, there are also a few exceptions if you have a hunting permit for on base.

When you take your weapons to the armory, be sure they are unloaded, chamber open, and they don't want your ammo.

I did a quick check of the two facilities close to me in NE FL.

NAS Jacksonville RV park states that firearms must be checked into the Base Amory.

Camp Blanding (FLNG) states that firearms must be registered at the gate with the MPs and may be kept at your RV.

I think the answer is "it depends." I'd recommend checking the web pages for each site. I use RV Trip Wizard and they have a link to the campgrounds website. And of course call to confirm.

The problem we ran into is some base armories had a time limit on how long they would hold firearm if you were not active duty PCS living in base quarters.

We had reservations in famcamp for 90 days and armory would only hold firearm for 30 days.

i can tell you from seeing 1st hand what happens if you bring one on base and get caught. Security police surrounded RV with weapons drawn had occupants on ground till they had the guys firearm in hand. Can impound vehicle as well.

Don't ask....don't tell can bite you in the axx

Navy famcamp we snowbird at had guest commit suicide with hand gun in RV. Command was not happy.

It makes no sense to prohibit firearms from places where everybody entering has to have an ID and the majority of the folks stationed there are trained in the use of firearms.

You are a 'visitor' vs assigned/stationed there
Different rules apply to visitors

In my limited experience, few people are allowed to be armed on military bases, except for military security personnel (MPs or Security Troops or SPs, etc.).

Even AD personnel must store their private arms in an armory if they live on-base.
Remember the FT. Hood massacre?

Yep, sure do, and had some of the combat arms type GIs been armed, there would not have been near the number of deaths of innocent people.

This is somewhat off-topic but related to RV travel with firearms. RVers and the 4th Amendment

I've always found it strange that the government takes your rights away on government property. What good is our constitution if the rights given to you can be taken away simply because of where you are?

Like it or not it is not a Constitutional violation. If you drive into a military base you and your vehicle can be searched arrested or seized under the National defence act of 19 something forgot the act number and that warning usually is posted at the gate prior to you entering when you sign in. To start with government property is restricted due to it's mission as is with all federal property as need be. Also understand that retired Law Enforcement Officers who have been formally trained to cary and conceal a firearm could not cary in all states until the passage of HR 218 and they are also restricted from loading a firearm on Federal Property, courts and schools... After that being passed out Congress and Senate also passed the same for themselves. Is our Congress and Senate that well trained After all they can have private security assigned to them and paid for by the U.S. Tax Payer and all of that has nothing to do under our Consution. Under the HR 218 law passage a Federal LEO can not carry on any aircraft and if the have a firearms them it must be locked in a special container placed in baggage the is place in the baggage compartment. That is not a violation of the Constitutions 2nd Admendant

You don't have the "right" to be on a military installation, just like you don't have a "right" to be in my house or me have a "right" to be in yours. You are a guest on that military installation and as such you are required to abide by the rules and regulations the government sees fit to impose. If you don't like it you do in fact have a right to leave, or not enter in the first place.

We are admitted at the whim of the installation commander.
