Disarming of the military a preview of what's to come?

According to this document from a military source, U.S. soldiers will be forced to register all firearms, even those privately owned:
    Requests to store privately owned firearms in family quarters or off-post must be submitted in writing to the assigned unit commander. ... Unit commanders must approve requests in writing. Requests will be kept on file in the unit arms room until sale or transfer of the firearm is provided to the unit commander.
The proposal also calls on the military to "account for and inventory the privately owned arms and ammunition by conducting inventories when inventorying Government arms and ammunition."

It's easy for Washington to justify forcing this kind of gun-control policy on active members of the military. But I can't help but suspect that this is just a preview of what's in store for the rest of us.
