U.S. postal workers can’t wield guns, but disgruntled ex-postal workers can, and since the sullen latter know the former fact, we’ve seen scores of cases of miscreants “going postal” and slaughtering innocents. That wouldn’t happen were it true (and widely known) that on-site postal workers could wield guns. Unlike U.S. postal facilities, shootings at U.S. military facilities are rare, even though these bases are designed to train recruits to kill others quickly, because the bases are also replete with people who wield guns proficiently and defensively.
Ed.: Excluding MPs and some guards, soldiers are always disarmed except when on the firing line on a range.
|If you don't live with your weapon, how can you expect to become comfortable and proficient.
"Men, we are being attacked! Run to the closet, oo, here's the keys, grab your rifle and execute the refamiliarization drill."
"This is my rifle. There are many like it but this one.. not wait, that one.. er hey, what's the serial number on yours there Dave, think mine had a scuff like that. This one feels funny."
