…There is strong evidence that it is training its soldiers to be.
This is…almost impossible for even me to believe.
I am getting old, going blind, and generally falling apart in ways that suggest I might not be alive for another ten years. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that’s okay with me, I will say I’ve reached that part of my life where, in terms of priorities, my own life is no longer #1 on the list*. For example, in the incredibly unlikely event that I were to see something like the above in real life, I simply cannot imagine the circumstances that would impel me to take that shot – even if that were the only way to safeguard my own life. And I’m not even a cop or federal officer, sworn to the safety of others.
It seems, however, that our brave protectors do not share my squeamish reservations.**
*Almost. Very close. But not #1.
** While Law Enforcement Targets is definitely a real company, I have been unable to get the “No More Hesitation” link to open. The best I can do is a “server is too busy” error message. Given the number of places this has suddenly shown up on the gunblogosphere, that doesn’t mean it’s a fraud. Doesn’t mean it isn’t, either.
