If he is going to bring a machine gun he has to have the DWP. Plus who is playing barracks lawyer? My state of residence is Illinois. Have I brought my own AR with evil features and no bullet button to California? Yes. Have I filled out the AWP, Yes. Is it 100% legal, yes. But no I do not keep my weapons on base because I would have to keep them in the Armory which is stupid. I keep them at my house in CA. But do I have friends who keep their weapons in the armory, Yes I do.
If you have a MAWP currently then you must be really buddy buddy with your base CO or he is willing to lie for you. I investigated this when I PCSd into CA in 2010. The current MAWP requires:
Official letter signed by the applicantís Base Commander, establishing that a bona fide necessity exists for use of personal assault weapons in military sanctioned activities. The letter must include a current telephone number for the Base Commanderís office.
The same letter is required for annual renewal in addition to:
Completed copy of Report of Use of Personal Assault Weapons in Military Sanctioned Activities (BOF 047)
Again, I see no way that any CO would sign the letter as there is no way that a servicemember would ever need a personal "assault weapon" for a military purpose.
