This from the same asshats that would put us in town in a foreign country with one buddy, guarding something and were told to "fake it" with empty mags. So if a crowd shows up, I have little recourse but to take a beating, and they end up with two M16A2's.
Or transporting 240 M16A2's, 4 M2HB's and 6 M60's with the E-5 having THREE ROUNDS in his 1911 and the guy with him and his M16...ZERO.
While I am pro-military, there are some REALLY STUPID rules out there.
If that is his attitude....with all due respect, he has no freaking clue.

There have been many officers that have made good account of themselves in battle and leading our troops and making sure the troops got what they needed. But some have failed miserably as civilians.
Two officers turned politician that I respect were Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy. I guess respect for the Constitution is a learned behavior; these two got that and acted accordingly.
Petraeus may have been a fine battlefield officer, but he doesn't seem to be able to make the transition to civilian, and his views on gun control are contrary to the oath he swore to on enlistment. I can overlook some things, but THAT is not something I will overlook, not ever.

I remember Army basic training in 1978. We did guard duty on empty buildings. I had a 20 round magazine in my pocket loaded with 3 live rounds.
