Call the base. They might honor the permit, or at least let you check your weapon at the front gate so you don't have to leave it off base or in your hotel.

I don't get it. If it was permissible the crazy Dr. at Ft. Hood might not have gotten off so many shots.
All gun laws fail the logic test.
PS, where are the "50 mm cannons
"? I'd sure love to shoot one of those....

Kind of ironic, IMHO.
When I lived in housing on base, we were allowed to have guns, but they had to be unloaded at all times. They also had to be registered with the Provost Marshall's office before we could bring them on base. We were not allowed weapons of any kind in the barracks. That was onboard MCAS Yuma, AZ, in the early ninties.
