Fort Hood to require firearm registration

I can't say I didn't see this coming, but I am disappointed all the same. I had a glimmer of hope that the brass would make a good decision and loosen the firearm restrictions, but alas...

Soldiers assigned to Fort Hood will have to register their personal firearms with the director of emergency services... (more)

This would seem to include registration of privately owned firearms that are stored off-base, which is a constitutionally questionable measure.

Keep in mind, Maj. Hasan had been flagged by the FBI months in advance of this shooting, and this information had been shared with military intelligence. If they are unwilling to take action on a suspected Islamofacist terrorist, how will a list of soldiers who own firearms (all of them) help prevent future attacks?
