Expand LEOSA to active duty/retired military?
So while reading the verbiage in the LEOSA, I was thinking, why would this not apply to active duty military while off duty? Most AD military have extensive training regarding weapon safety, proficiency, and we even train for active shooter scenarios. Now I understand those with PTSD, legal issues and other stuff should be excluded. I think AD should be able to carry concealed in accordance with the LEOSA while off duty. COMMENTS?
Re: Expand LEOSA to active duty/retired military?
"The Military" is a rather large scope and Military use of force laws are nearly inapplicable to armed self defense not in relation to Military duties, and the handgun training regarding "the military" as a whole is severly lacking then again a lot of LE handgun training is not much better.

Many of the people I've found to be in the most need of training in use of force law have been prior Military.
I mean come on, the Military ROE typically calls for warning shots which has Landed some prior service types in some deep doodoo in the world outside of Military postings.
Now, if the Military were to come up with a specific course to address these issues, and have a pistol course similar to what the Corps was using in the High Risk Personnel Course, then I would feel better about the idea, but as it stands right now there are few Billets, ratings, MOS' etc that I could see with justification to be part of LEOSA. NCIS (the real thing not the Crap you see on TV) and like personnel? Sure. But the Military as a whole? No way, not without more specilized training.
