This has nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment or the right to arms of citizens.

Dictating the who, where, when and manner of arms carrying for enrolled personnel is entirely within the express powers and the prerogative of the government.

I agree that the disarming of our "armed forces" is/was absurd and that now allowing them to be armed for defense is a good thing, but please don't present this as an advancement for, or even an example of, "gun rights".
