I carried an M-4 in the Afghanistan desert for almost a year. If you feel you need this or another weapon of war like it to protect your home; you need to re-evaluate the way you’re living your life & make fewer enemies. These have no place in civilian hands.
I’m amazed, shocked, humbled & a lot of other adjectives about the traction this tweet has gotten. I was just adding my 2 cents along with a lot of other vets today. I don’t claim to speak for anybody else but myself, just a regular dude stating my opinion.
A lot of people have agreed with me, a lot of people have not. I appreciate & respect everyone’s right to do so. I can’t begin to keep up with all the comments and sub-arguments going on, I hope we can all have a civil dialogue and hear each other out.
And there’s been over a dozen hacking attempts made on my account this hour 👀
Gun people trying to explain to us that the AR-15 and the M-4/M-16 are nothing alike...
