Certainly no offense taken, Aloysius. I'm an old fart talking about something that happened a long time ago. You young troops are experiencing something unique to these times, and I respect you all so very much. I just hope and pray that the system, especially the Veterans Administration, is better equipped now to handle the needs of your generation better than it was ours.

Haven't you figured out that the Armed Forces of the US are rabid anti-gun fanatics?
Gun control is hitting what you aim at

AFS, if you are asking me that question, then the answer is no, I did not know that. Sure was not like that during my time in uniform.... course that was a long time ago also.

I have a close family member that believes exactly this. And they'll find her with a bloody death-grip on the telephone 20mins later, awaiting that fine government official ... to take temp, prod and swab her. Can't seem to make a dent in that one.
Only the trained government official will protect you. You should rely on them and never do it for yourself.
Yes, track down the agency, dept. or poor sods who misspent funds on this farce. Write to the congress/senate. Write to the top five newspapers in the country. Hope for the best.

I am from another age and another war. I have carried since I came back from Nam in 1970. Never once lost my cool while packing. My 2A rights are as important to me as are the rest of the Bill of Rights. Aloysius, thank you for your service. Stay safe and protect yourself.

While I'm not advocating the way the message was being presented, or even the whole message in general, these films are produced for the lowest common denominator.

I think the point I'm trying to get at, is that even though the message doesn't apply to you, it can apply to people who live on base and who might not have registered their weapons with the armory. I mean young PFC Smith, who just turned 21 and finished his second tour may well need a message like this to ground him back to reality, and not go out and buy a gun because he's seen how bad things can get. Guys like you, who probably carried before they left, know the responsibility of carrying before they go, and don't let emotions or combat experience influence that decision
That said, I don't think the video will be that effective, but it's better then sending battle hardened soldiers into the wild with no decompression.

And a great portion of the military force is made up of National Guard members, who plan on coming back to be members of the community. Hopfuly they will all get CCW.

Last I checked, responsibility and common sense didn't fall out of my head onto the floor when I changed my clothes.
