      have bullets in them or have them on your person to put into the weapon when and if needed.

      What I'm finding hard to accept here is that I could walk onto any military base and encounter very little if any resistance.

      Don't we pay you to be trained to arms? And I'd expect your training to include safely handling, storing and deployment of said.  I would also expect that you'd be able to defend our installations when the time came, instantaneously.

      At the very bottom line here, if we were invaded, you couldn't stop it because you're not armed. And what's truly frightening, our military installations would be the first targets. Does this mean that every person needs to be armed on a base, no.
