Dyess AFB Allows Concealed Handgun Transport in POVs

From our good friends at XBRADTC comes this very interesting bit of news.

Quoting now from the source:

… now permits authorized personnel that possess a current and valid Texas Concealed Handgun License or a reciprocating state concealed carry license to transport and secure privately-owned handguns in privately-owned vehicles within legal boundaries of Dyess Air Force Base.”While this policy change does not allow concealed carry on base, it does allow those who carry concealed weapons to transport them onto and off the base in their vehicles,” said Col. David Benson, 7th Bomb Wing commander.

I’m not sure if this had been in works before the Mohammedan massacre at San Bernardino, or if the good Colonel took quick and decisive action afterwards. Either way it’s a very good step in the absolute right direction. I only wish the Marine Corps had lead the way.

Speaking of readiness– How do you stand? What do you carry everyday? What is your training plan? What is your plan to fill in your gaps and vulnerability? If the massacre by Mohammedans at San B were a one-off, perhaps we could be forgiven some laxity. But it’s not. The massacre at San B and the other acts of directed and inspired violence that preceded it point to more in the future. We’d best get that through our heads.
