The Pentagon proudly announced that their murder-suicide rate now surpassed deaths in combat: ‘In order to make folks feel safer, what we need is more guns – and that means more civilian deaths. More guns, but in the right hands. We need to be arming US marksmen with mental health problems, not ill-trained Afghanistan insurgents. Give a Taliban fighter a gun and he’s more likely to fire it in the air while dancing around a burning Stars and Stripes. Give a US marine a gun and he’s gonna do some damage’.
