53. Why should you fall into a specially licensed category?

As you are retired, you are not longer engaged in active law enforcement and no longer receiving regular firearms training. Are you currently providing protection for a celebrity or politician? If not, I see not logical reason why you should feel justified to include yourself into a special catagory superior to the avergage citizen.

You are just another citizen now, nothing special about you. Whatever status permitted you access to a "modern" arm is now in the past. Or, is it that you afraid to surrender your modern weapon and revert to a firelock?

At this point in your life, your modern firearm serves little pratical purpose other than to defend yourself, something you seem eager to deny others.

What of military veterans? Have they not been trained as well?

Oh, and I would like to see proof of your 3-star CAR (that which doesn't betry your personal identity of course), or at least some detailed descriptions of the actions for which you were awarded the CAR.

I know what this means, so pony up.
