    Was recently in Navy times...Yep those of us who have personally owned firearms will have to do additional training...of course it will be NKO training :upeyes: . More on this rolling out but until then here's so light reading for ya.

    I'm posting the message but not Ref A. It's about a hundred pages but what you are looking for is on pg 3-5a through 3-6. Mostly it's people who live in on base housing and PPV housing that will be most effected by this at the moment.

    AMPN/OPNAVINST 5530.14E CHAP I, NAVY PHYSICAL SECURITY AND LAW ENFORCEMENT
    PROGRAM.//

    RMKS/1. MISHAPS INVOLVING PERSONAL FIREARMS HAVE RESULTED IN SERIOUS INJURY
    AND DEATH. IN FY08, AT LEAST 28 ACTS OF SAILOR MISCONDUCT OR SUICIDE OCCURRED
    ONBOARD NAVY INSTALLATIONS, AND ANOTHER 111 SUCH INCIDENTS OCCURRED OFF-BASE;
    26 RESULTED IN DEATH. THIS MESSAGE SUMMARIZES RECENT CHANGES IN POLICY
    INTENDED TO PREVENT THESE TRAGIC MISHAPS.

    2. A RECENT REVIEW OF FIREARMS POLICY RESULTED IN UPDATED GUIDANCE FOR THE
    INTRODUCTION, POSSESSION, AND STORAGE OF PERSONAL WEAPONS ONBOARD NAVY
    INSTALLATIONS. REF A ESTABLISHES MINIMUM REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY
    REQUIREMENTS, AND DIRECTS INSTALLATION COMMANDING OFFICERS TO ESTABLISH A
    PROCESS FOR THE STRICT CONTROL AND ACCOUNTABILITY OF PERSONAL FIREARMS
    AUTHORIZED ONBOARD NAVY INSTALLATIONS. AN IMPORTANT CHANGE IN POLICY IS THAT
    SAILORS MAY NOW STORE PERSONAL WEAPONS IN CERTAIN LOCATIONS ONBOARD NAVY
    INSTALLATIONS UNDER CAREFULLY CONTROLLED CIRCUMSTANCES AND WITH THE PRIOR
    WRITTEN APPROVAL OF THE INSTALLATION COMMANDING OFFICER.

    3. INSTALLATION COMMANDING OFFICERS MAY AUTHORIZE THE STORAGE OF PROPERLY
    REGISTERED PERSONAL WEAPONS IN ON-BASE MILITARY FAMILY HOUSING AREAS
    (INCLUDING ON-BASE PUBLIC-PRIVATE VENTURE (PPV) HOUSING) AND IN EXISTING
    ARMORIES. PERSONAL FIREARMS STORAGE IN OTHER LOCATIONS ON-BASE, SUCH AS
    BACHELOR QUARTERS, AUTOMOBILES, AND WORK CENTERS, IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
    A. PERSONAL FIREARMS MUST BE STORED IN EITHER A LOCKED CONTAINER, A LOCKED
    GUN RACK, OR SECURED WITH AN APPROVED INDIVIDUAL TRIGGER OR CHAMBER-STYLE GUN
    LOCK THAT PREVENTS LOADING OR FIRING. AMMUNITION MUST BE STORED IN A SEPARATE
    LOCKED CONTAINER.
    B. INDIVIDUALS STORING PRIVATELY-OWNED FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION IN ON-BASE
    MILITARY FAMILY HOUSING (INCLUDING ON-BASE PPV HOUSING) WILL ENSURE THEY ARE
    INACCESSIBLE TO UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS AND MINORS.

    4. ALL PERSONAL FIREARMS APPROVED BY THE INSTALLATION COMMANDING OFFICER FOR
    TRANSPORT ON A NAVY INSTALLATION SHALL BE TRANSPORTED ONLY AFTER INSTALLATION
    SECURITY HAS BEEN NOTIFIED, THE FIREARMS ARE UNLOADED, AND THEY ARE IN THE
    TRUNK OF THE VEHICLE. IF THE VEHICLE HAS NO TRUNK, THE FIREARM MUST BE
    DISASSEMBLED, OR SECURED WITH A TRIGGER OR CHAMBER-STYLE LOCK, AND STORED IN A
    LOCKED CONTAINER. AMMUNITION WILL BE TRANSPORTED IN A SEPARATE COMPARTMENT
    FROM THE ONE IN WHICH THE FIREARM IS STORED.

    5. IN ALL CASES, INDIVIDUALS WILL COMPLY WITH ALL FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL
    LAWS AND REGULATIONS CONCERNING FIREARM OWNERSHIP, POSSESSION, REGISTRATION,
    TRANSPORTATION, AND USE. FURTHERMORE, STATE LICENSE PERMITS TO CARRY CONCEALED
    HANDGUNS ARE NOT RECOGNIZED OR VALID ON NAVY INSTALLATIONS.

    6. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ALL SAILORS WHO OWN WEAPONS TAKE THEIR
    RESPONSIBILITIES SERIOUSLY AND COMPLY WITH REF A. VIOLATIONS OF THE
    REGULATIONS CONTAINED IN REF A BY MILITARY PERSONNEL MAY SUBJECT THEM TO
    ADMINISTRATIVE AND/OR DISCIPLINARY ACTION UNDER THE UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY
    JUSTICE. CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES MAY BE SUBJECT TO DISCIPLINARY ACTION OR
    ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION UNDER APPLICABLE CIVILIAN PERSONNEL INSTRUCTIONS.

    7. FOR FURTHER CLARIFICATION OF NAVY POLICY ON PERSONAL WEAPONS, REFER TO REF
    A, CHAPTER 0306, PARAGRAPH A-H. NAVY POINT OF CONTACT FOR THIS POLICY IS ERIC
    HAMMETT, OPNAV N46, AT (202) 433-9567 OR E-MAIL: ERIC.HAMMETT@NAVY.MIL.

    I was always concerned about my handguns being found in my vehicle at a checkpoint, but never happened.
