    2 years of military training makes you better at handling a weapon. Makes you more effective.  I don't see how it affects your probability of deciding to go take out a bunch of children. A gun owner who goes berserk is dangerous.  A better trained gun owner who goes berserk is more dangerous.

    Although maybe two years of training would make someone less likely to shoot their own kid while pulling out of a gun store.

    •  There's a lot more regulation (1+ / 0-)

      beyond just the service. A LOT.

      An unsuccessful shoe bomb attack resulted in nine years of inconvenience for every flier in the country. It would be nice to think [this diabolical act] might lead to some similar inconveniences. --mrblifil
