Gun Control & The Draft

I grew up hunting and fishing.

Most of the business our small community had came from the hunters that paid money to hunt on the land in our community.

We never had the problems we have today.

When I was in the Navy, I struggled to deal with the discipline, but I hung in there and eventually I was discharged.

If you had asked me back then if I would support a draft, my answer would have been NO!

But kids today aren’t raised like I was where you learned how to safely handle firearms.

I believe a mandatory 2 year draft would accomplish several things:

  • It would teach them how to safely handle firearms
  • It would teach many who advocate for war in our political system the horrors of war and that, ultimately would bring our troops home from these endless wars that are little more than conquests for our politicians bragging rights.
