You are speaking in hypotheticals. Adam Lanza was bent on murder and mayhem which can be carried out by many other means besides firearms of any grade.

The real problem is that he was crazy and it should have been easier for his mother to have him committed.

I got demoted in country for standing up for myself when my worthless piece of shit. Platoon sgt wouldnt. Didn't get along with the battalion co while on convoys. I get to stay in because I was more of an nco at e3 then the nco's that I had. Another one was because we came under fire by a sniper and we escalated from 9 mm to m19 and ended up leveling a major building to eliminate the threat and again our platoon sgt is a kiss ass witb no spine. So you need to know the facts before you judge cuz how I'm seeing them comments your no better than that worthless piece of trash that got to be fsgt on my last tour. I'm still in and got my stripes because the co of the 101 seen what the reasons were and was there for a lot of them. In other words ill put my career and life on the line for a brother in arms if things coming down are fobar and no one has the spine to do anything about it.

I feel a lot of these shooting issues could be avoided with a gun safe to be honestly. If you cant get to them you cant use them.
So I think the law should be changed to if you want them lock them up. And there are some that the owner can get into in a matter of seconds if need be.

9 out of 10 socialists agree, it's always someone else's fault. They are my guns and none of your business. Getting in my business isn't healthy.

Which demotion was this again?

So you started a counter-sniper engagement with an M9? What was the "major building" you leveled? Was it clear of all non-combatants before you poured fire into it?

I'm no better? LOL 20 years and E1-CW3. No demotions here, Turbo and I did tell higher to pack it when necessary. Know YOUR facts.

So the Div Com of the 101st saw that you were this amazing solder with 7 or 8 undeserved AR-15's and cut you some slack? Really...what is your unit and MOS??

Agreed. He could've gone McVeigh and made it a whole lot worse.

I've heard so many different variations of these stories. Usually they're the guys with the DD214 that say General Other Than Honorable in box 24 and box 28 would be Personality Disorder or Behavioral Issues. Listen high speed, you're failing to notice that there plenty of us on this forum who are either still serving or have served. There is nothing special about you. Absolutely nothing Audie Murphy. Before you attack other members, also notice that a good amount of them support the military. So stop making us look bad. You have provided no facts and just mere hearsay. Btw, Poges say fobar. Actual word is "fubar". My last year in was as platoon sergeant in a line unit...you wouln't last 10 seconds before I have your squad leader put you in the front leaning rest with a dry flash card in front of you. Want to take a guess on when I'd let you recover?

Yep. Last time I took a building down, it took 25MM HE, M1 HEAT, M2, MK19 and TOW 2A's. And that was a sh1tty Somali structure too!

I highly doubt he will tell you. Cowards who spout hate rarely back it up.

He's a good candidate for stolen valor or pownetwork.com.

He's been red label as a sh!t bird by military members on here. One thing we hate is "super troopers" coming on here with stories of glory and expecting us to believe them...anyone remember w8nonu?

I pick em out like a fat chick at a zumba class. This kid probably thought this was the R6 forum.

I read that ridiculous post he made again and noticed that he didn't even get the name of the weapon right. Only POGs and pretenders get it wrong.

Yeah I got confused with m19. Anyone, especially a grunt, knows the correct term is MK19 aka Mark 19. I don't know what military or soup sandwhich unit this kid is in, but if you're around the Battalion commander and mouthing off to him or disrespecting him, I'd personally counseled you in the woodline. I don't care how much you hate your higher command, especially at the lower enlisted level; you haven't earned jack shit or will ever know enough to say anything. You always respect the rank and never disrespect the person wearing them. You don't have to respect the person, but don't disrespect them. I'm known to say my piece and my opinion, but always in private and with tact. Dissentions amongst the ranks is a no-go. I can hate my command, but I will not allow joe to know or show it. As platoon sergeant, you can always take it on your young lieutenants.

Lt's are pretty funny when they show up to a unit. They don't know whether to sh!t or get off the pot. The first day, they're usually walking around with their chests puffed out. The next day, they look confused and lost.

Here's a no-shit true story for you. I was only a private at the time and fresh out of infantry school. A couple of weeks later we get a new young freshly commissioned butter bar. Right before formation, my platoon sergeant pulls the lieutenant aside and rips into him. I caught, "listen mother****er, this is my platoon. I run shit my way and you don't do shit without running it by me..." His face was straight and tone was just evil. The butter bar was so cofused and scared that he stood at parade rest for my platoon sergeant. I shit you not. Even I was scared and confused. The other guys standing around almost broke out laughing. There was a moment of silence until my platoon sergeant starts laughing. One of the best and funniest platoon sergeants I've ever had because he knew how to keep morale up. The stories with him are outrageous. During chow one time he went up to one of the Rangers from another platoon and asked him if he saw Animal House. As the sergeant was answering he stuff mashed potatoes into his mouth and smashed his cheeks in. Mashed potatoes all over the dude's boots. Epic. The days...
