I found this old Edwards Air Force Base perimeter sign while hiking in the desert looking for a crash site.

Very neat item - and what's a sign without a few bullet holes?

Not sure what the penalty for violating the internal security act of 1950 was then, but today if you cross that line you are screwed.

Use by the U.S. military[edit]

The U.S. military continues to use 50 U.S.C. § 797, citing it in U.S. Army regulation AR 190-11 in support of allowing installation commanders to regulate privately owned weapons on army installations. An Army message known as an ALARACT[14] states "senior commanders have specific authority to regulate privately owned weapons, explosives, and ammunition on army installations." The ALARACT refers to AR 190-11 and public law (section 1062 of Public Law 111-383, also known as the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011); AR 190-11 in turn cites the McCarran Internal Security Act (codified as 50 USC 797). The ALARACT reference is a truncated version of the public law.[15]

Amended[edit]

Part of the Act was repealed by the Non-Detention Act of 1971. For example, violation of 50 U.S.C. § 797 (Section 21 of "the Internal Security Act of 1950"), which concerns security of military bases and other sensitive installations, may be punishable by a prison term of up to one year.[16]

The part of the act codified as 50 U.S.C. § 798 has been repealed in its entirety for violating the First Amendment.[17]

The now-powerless Subversive Activities Control Board was abolished by Congress in 1972.[18]
