Perhaps one reason for “our” “success” in WW1 and WW2 was the marksmanship of the average civilian.
Today, there would be no such advantage.
Today’s gang bangers are lucky they don’t shoot themselves. Everything they know about guns comes from TV and movies.
One can only hope that “We, The Sheeple” are teaching their children “traditional values”.
“Let us hope our weapons are never needed – but do not forget what the common people of this nation knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny.” – Edward Abbey
