In my perfect world, someone with a military background could take "fast track" training that fills in those gaps and get their CCW/CHL. Combine this with an elimination of most gun free zones and you'd have a very effective emergency response solution. (assuming a good percentage of people opt in to do this and carry)
He made a cute remark about Full Metal Jacket. It clear shows he does not have a ****ing clue the type of combat our troops are engaged in or the type of training they go through. Door to door training where innocents and bad guys are mixed together is a very large part of their training. There is nobody more prepared to be in a crisis situation than the troops that receive this training and in many cases real life situation experience~
