It different to have a 18 year old get a gun and use it to protect our country then it is to have the same person go out and buy a gun!! Remember this for all the righties out there... the 18 year olds that going any of the armed forces do use guns but under supervision of their commanding officers and above!! So they don’t have any supervision in the society so it’s a lot different!! You can compare this from apples to oranges!! One is supervised the other isn’t!! Period!!
