Not all bases, not all troops, not all the time. Not really a change.

I was at Ft Bragg last week, only the guards at the gates were armed from what I could see.

The directive that went out applies mainly to recruiting offices. It is not a general directive for all military bases. I am retired military. COs have always had the power to arm their troops if necessary. It is very rarely done. Even when I was a shore patrolman in NYC we were unarmed except on special occasions.

All troops go through basic firearms training. This is not the same kind of training as for LEOs, and not training for concealed carry, except the Coast Guard who are LEOs. They receive training in shoot/noshoot situations and boarding parties are trained in how to clear confined areas on board ships and boats.

I visit JBLM, near Tacoma, on a regular basis and the firearms rules haven't changed there for at least ten years.

Just a PS: about 10 years ago, a civilian employee at JBLM came on base and shot his wife (another civilian employee) dead, This occurred at the Post Exchange in front of hundreds of soldiers and dependents. So you can imagine why Base CO's are reluctant to allow CCL on base. Yeah you can make the argument above a good guy with a gun, etc. But there were a lot of good guys with guns there (including automatic weapons) and it didn't stop this nut.
