Is it ironic that many of the same people who are worried about the militarization of the US government are also many of the ones who want military recruiters walking around the grocery store with M16s?

Military being armed at a recruitment center isn't the same as carrying an M16 at the grocery store. But a properly trained military member carrying a side arm is no big deal to me. I am surrounded by CCW holders daily

It's not like its shoot outs every day.

I never said cut off. I know gun terms are hard for the uniformed to understand, but a side arm isn't an M16. I have no problem with side arms on a trained professional anywhere. As far as if they want long guns at the recruitment

Center, that's fine. You're lumping two separate things together and trying to make a good idea sound bad. All you're accomplishing is sounding dumb to people who know what you're talking about better than you do.

But how hard would it be to train them? And on a side note, why are our military members not trained in use of common defensive weapons?

Care to explain? Because you're the one that was confusing an M16 with a hand gun.

When you're asking when the cut off is. I had stated that they most likely wouldn't be carrying M16's at the grocery store, yet I have no problem with them carrying a side arm.

What a ridiculous question!

Who's asserting that military personnel should carry automatic weapons in grocery stores?

Who in the right mind is worried about the militarization of America, especially since naked emperor 0 is reducing the size?

Shall we also focus on the color of the tile in the grocery store!?

If you want to get technical, the M16A3 is a fully automatic version of the rifle that was made for the Navy and Special Forces. However, this trivia deflects from the poll!

Sailing ... answer my two questions, if you dare.

Sailing ... I recognize its hard to admit when you're wrong.

The poll question is nonsensical and you want to focus on trivia!

The key is our military members are targets at home and abroad and should be armed at least when in uniform. Period.

Sailing ... noted that you chose not to answer my questions, but rather continue to deflect from the real issue of our service men and women as sitting ducks.
