The U.S. is awash in well-trained warriors fresh from the military as it faces off on gun control issues.

There are 5.1 million Post 9/11 vets alone, and they’re not all going to take new gun-control laws lightly.

Any servicemember knows their mission is to kill people, in the end, during conflicts, it’s why we’re there.

Even in my “soft,” non-infantry unit, a cadence we exercised to included a line, “Blood, blood, bright red blood it makes the green grass grow.” The warrior ethos is kneaded into the psyche from day one.

That’s a bit of context from a former service-member who never relied on a series of weapons for immediate survival or survival of my friends. From someone who never developed relationships with the tools of the battlefield; who never slaved to keep a weapon performing endlessly and without question. The maintenance and care required to achieve that security in the harsh gritty environments of Iraq and Afghanistan is profound.
