Over a 10-year period there have been more than 230 instances of soldiers violating Army regulations by bringing an unregistered firearm to Fort Hood.
The Killeen Daily Herald reports that an open-records request revealed the violations occurred from 2004 to 2014. There were 45 reports of unregistered weapons last year, the highest number over that 10-year timeframe.
Army regulations stipulate than any service member and their family living on a post must register all personal firearms. The rules do not apply to those living off-post.
The latest news from around North Texas.
An Army report in January recommended changes to personal firearms policy, including that soldiers be required to register any privately owned firearm irrespective of whether a soldier lives in public or private housing.
