I am in ( was ) college and I saw tons of ex- military straight out of Afghanistan/Iraq. One of them worked technical support and was in my drafting class ( autocad ). He was briefly called back to duty and return during the end of the semester.
Before that he was positive and talked in good nature. Usually about bar and being a "police officer and being careful not shooting anybody."He came back and his back was up against the wall clitching his hands like he had a gun in it ( clearly this was clear PTSD ) but he was hiding it.
Point being is that you have people who exit military and jump into policing ( despite them being a techie being used as an extra-body for a mission ) and people like him with that "method of thinking" is what we do not need in the police, armed-forces, and even federal government. However these people hide problems and eventually they come to fruition.
We need random psychological examinations for police officers, to test their mental response to prevent placing officers in the field who could create problems ( as with that guy who killed George Floyd ).
We need to better understand the mentality of a person using a weapon rather then preventing them from getting their hands on it. The reality gun control / safety reform. is the same thing as prohibition.
We see a problem that nobody solves.
We give a fake reason for the problem.
We make fake jobs for the problem.
The problem happens over and over again.
Yet we do not fire these people that are suppose to be experts in the problem.
We say "no more guns" and like lighting people buy tons and tons of guns, to a point where you literally could randomly find a gun lying outside in the open.
The drunks ( gun buyers ) go insane and makes people rush to buy any gun they can get.
We show pictures of somebody crying over the lost of their family member. Child, Meal-ticket, wife, brother, etc.
Nobody is saying how can we make people less violent. How could we solve peoples problems and put them in a less violent situation. How could we deter( pacify ) violence.
They just say "lets take away people rights to own weapons". People respond by buying more weapons.
Did you know officers was caught raiding the evidence lockers for guns, and drugs and then selling them back out on the streets ???
Did you know that chance is most people are not raised in a house hold or have a neighborhood with love. With more time going by and less belief of "love thy neighbor" we have more hostile people being born.
