    Also law enforcement and the military is basically where that argument falls apart.

    The argument doesn't "fall apart", Idol, if you're willing to grant the re-formulation wherein it is pointed-out the general citizenry

    finds criminals among it's ranks with much greater frequency than it does Military personnel.

    Have you ever used/fired one?

    What, precisely, do you know about them?

    When I was in middle school, firearm safety was a required course.
