Not sure about violent criminals: what would we do, arm them and trust that they'd use the guns on the enemy ?
I am a felon.You are so ignorant in saying that.If we were invaded or if I was drafted I would be proud to fight for this country.You are talking about a percentage with mental problems who may do that,that being said there are people who have clean records whove commited some of the most attrocious war shaynepatrick
Okay, then I'm talking about THAT percentage. How does one determine ? You may be a model patriot (except for being a felon). But the best indicator of future behaviour is PAST behaviour, and if you were a VIOLENT CRIMINAL (reread my post), I don't want you armed. Sorry.
No. The draft and the selective service is just a pool of people to choose from. They still have to qualify for the service with a physical, police checks and citizenship and a written test.
Contrary to popular conceptions, the military does not take just anyone.
No , think about it
i would think not
I sure hope not.
