(bold and underlining mine)
"this is another feel good piece of law/authority to seem like they are following the 2nd Amendment" In 6 mos. do a freedom of information request and see how many commanders have allowed privately owned hand guns on DOD facilities!!
The arming authorities charged with determining whether to permit DoD personnel to carry privately owned firearms on DoD property:
a. May grant permission to DoD personnel requesting to carry a privately owned firearm (concealed or open carry) on DoD property for a personal protection purpose not related to performance of an official duty or status. Permissions granted under this section do not apply to carrying a firearm within federal buildings unless the arming authority specifically determines, after consultation with servicing legal counsel and in accordance with applicable DoD policy, that an appropriate exception under Section 930(d) of Title 18, U.S.C. applies.(1) All permissions will be in writing after verifying that the requester meets the requirements in this issuance. Written permission will be valid for 90 days or as long as the DoD Component deems appropriate and will include information necessary to facilitate the carrying of the firearm on DoD property consistent with safety and security, such as the individual's name, duration of the permission to carry, type of firearm, etc.
