Increasing Suicide Rate?
Liberals are “concerned” that lowering the age of those in the military who could have guns after separation would increase the military suicide rate. Why, that's jist turribl! Seems to me if they're in the military, whose business is to kill people and break things. They SHOULD be allowed to carry guns in order to accomplish that. Of course, in their jobs in the military, they CAN carry and use a gun. But when they come home to Colorado, they can't get one unless they are 21! Do they really think somebody contemplating killing themselves will care about breaking a law against buying a gun? This antiquated requirement completely ignores the fact that they are highly trained to use guns, and are dependable in their use. A Greely politician is trying to change that, sponsoring legislation to lower that age for underage members of the military, or those honorably discharged from same. I doubt the bill will go far in the Democrat-dominated Colorado legislature, but it's a step in the right direction. (Greely Tribune)
