In an article on Yahoo, a group of General Officers, to include McChrystal, Wesley Clark (USA), Eric Olsen (USN), Norman Seip (USAF) and Stephen Cheney (USMC), have all joined with former congresswoman Gabby Giffords and her husband Mark in opposing the National Reciprocity Bill. The generals (and admiral) were quoted as stating (through McChrystal) that Congress no longer speaks for the American people and that approval of the reciprocity bill would weaken our national gun laws and allow untrained and potentially dangerous people to roam our neighborhoods. As a military veteran I have the utmost respect for the rank of these individuals, but find my respect of these particular individuals is below that of dog crap on my boot! During the interview, the groups lauded their knowledge and expertise of weapons as the basis for their claim about the "horrible" condition of our laws. My thoughts immediately ran to the following possibilities: 1) Sucking up to liberals for a possible political appointment at a later date. 2) Monumentally deluded as to their status. I imagine it has been over a decade since any of these personages was ever involved in any type of "action" involving weapons and have made their decisions for that same decade from their insulated offices guarded by their security staff. 3) Military viewpoint only and absolutely NO experience in the self defense or concealed carry world. 4) Just arrogant misinformed self deluded as to their own importance. Yes I realize these gentlemen have sacrificed for their country, as have I, but their opinions are as out of touch with the American public as the liberal left. I believe they are so isolated from the American citizenry that they have no idea of current statistics or situation of most Americans.
