Thanks for the reference, thallub! What I'm trying to discover is, if it's a "felony thing" for a civilian to bring an unauthorized firearm on base, what federal statute or CFR applies that makes it a felony. It's my understanding (and I may be wildly off-base here) that such a regulation promulgated by a base commander, or even by the service branch itself, has no force of law for a civilian, that a civilian violating such a regulation at most would be escorted off the base and possibly (likely?) prohibited from returning.
I'm just trying to nail down the applicable code section under which the person would be charged.
