There is an active shooter situation at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas.

There are reports of victims.

The base is on lockdown–

UPDATE: At least one person is dead – the shooter is in custody.

UPDATE: At least two are dead…

More— The Air Force rules designate bases as gun free zones.

1) Be legally authorized to own and transport firearm within your state; be sure you are transporting per state requirements.
2) At the base gate, as you are showing ID, mention you are transporting a POW (privately owned weapon) and are either a) headed directly to the armory to drop it off or b) headed directly to the Rod & Gun club/range to go shooting if a member.
3) Go directly to the mentioned location.
4) If going to the Armory to turn in, clear the weapon safely at the clearing barrel the SFS use, then call the armorer to let them know you are ready to turn in. Unless you are a “regular”, it’s suggested you call ahead of time to set this all up.
5) There are VERY few other possible legal actions involving firearms on base. Some bases have gun stores in the BX; they have strict controls and will fully brief any customers.
6) Any Base specific questions should be directed to your installation’s Law Enforcement Desk.
Edit: As a side note – State CCW permits hold no force on military bases… weapons may only be carried at the permission of the base Commander. As a SFS member, I would CCW/Open Carry my own weapon to the base, mention to the gate guys I was heading in to work and carrying as always, get to the armory, turn in my personal pistol, then draw my duty weapon for the shift, then reverse the process to go home.
