    Guns are bad, because they kill people. We let the military have them, because it's their job to kill people

      Why would you want the military to be armed and yet be unarmed yourself?

    Because usually in a war, guns are needed.  Or do you prefer nuclear bombs?

    Let's see:

    Military personnel have very tough training in when to use guns and when NOT to.

    Military personnel are NOT allowed to just take guns wherever they want to.

    ----

    In the Army, firearms are stored under lock, key, and sometimes guard, and god help you if one goes missing—the post shuts down and a frenzied search bordering on a religious quest begins. After basic training, soldiers are required to go through a few hours of refresher training with practical drills before they are even allowed on a range for individual shooting qualification. These are ranges that are heavily monitored, with a monumental emphasis on safety.

    What might be shocking to people who have not been around the military is that if a soldier cannot qualify with his weapon, he is not allowed to carry or shoot it on live-fire exercises or downrange.

    ----

    How many civilians could qualify under those rules ? NOT many at all !

    What about nuclear weapons?  By that logic they should be publicly available too.
