Fort Hood now requiring firearm registration

FORT HOOD - A new policy requires anyone living or temporarily staying on Fort Hood register all privately-owned firearms.

Fort Hood commanding general, Lt. Gen. Robert Crone, signed the order into effect on Tuesday.

The order instructs all servicemembers and their families "living, residing or temporarily staying on Fort Hood register any POF kept on post with the Directorate of Emergency Services."

In addition, the new regulation requires soldiers living in barracks or in temporary housing must notify their immediate commander of the weapons and keep them in "respective unit arms room in accordance with Army Regulation 190-11 and Fort Hood Regulation 190-11."

The policy states that "All persons, whether servicemember or civilian, who intend to transport a POF onto Fort Hood must first register that firearm with DES." When entering Fort Hood, all persons are required to declare to access control point personnel that they are bringing a POF onto the installation.
