It has been determined that publication of this CFR part removal for public comment is impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to public interest since it is based on removing DoD internal policies and procedures that are publically available on the Department's website.

DoD internal guidance will continue to be published in Army Regulation 190-14, “Carrying of Firearms and Use of Force for Law Enforcement and Security Duties,” available at​ProductMaps/​PubForm/​AR.aspx.

This rule is not significant under Executive Order (E.O.) 12866, “Regulatory Planning and Review,” therefore, E.O. 13771, “Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs” does not apply.
