    Might not need a gun to protect your kids in a bank robbery

    If the robber has a toy gun and you have multiple tours in Iraq under your belt.

    He's very lucky it wasn't a real gun. That could've ended very badly for him. There's a fine line between bravery and stupidity.

    Why didn't he use a gun to just shoot the robber? Oh wait, he is military stationed overseas. So obtaining, possessing, and traveling with a handgun is probably such a hassel for him it isn't worth it or even possible.

    Oh, wait - that's right. He's stationed overseas, along with his family, so they were on leave in Sarasota.

    Yes, during the several years I was stationed overseas, I gave my firearms to my father for safekeeping. Provided I was visiting him, I was armed, at least at home. I couldn't get a CC here in the Springs back then, as I was neither stationed nor living here, and hadn't even known at the time that OC was legal.

    He will probably get an Article 15 for risking government property getting damaged.

    lol, no joke. LOR for personal endangerment.
    An individual should not choose the caliber, cartridge, and bullet that will kill an an animal when everything is right; rather, he should choose ones that will kill the most efficiently when everything goes wrong

    I half expect to see him confined to base for exhibiting a "wild" and "recklessly dangerous" non-compliant attitude unrepresentative of the "professionalism" of the Armed Forces.

    Unless his garrison commander has a pair, in which case he may very well receive an upcheck in his service record.
