    Why does the U.S. military keep guns locked up and tightly
    controlled on their (U.S.) bases? After all, the folks on those
    bases are arguably the best-trained, most responsible gun
    carriers in the entire population. Shouldn't they be able to
    "exercise their 2nd amendment rights"?

    Perhaps the U.S. military believes that having everyone carrying weapons is actually not ideal, and is not really the way to ensure a "polite society".

    Reminds me in a way of those "gun rights" politicians who are
    happy to prevent anyone from carrying a gun into, say, the House of Representatives... wouldn't they feel safer and more polite if their colleagues and random folks in the visitors gallery were all packing heat?
