3. Say what you will about Controllers, but they got that part right.
A gun -is- a power-bestowing device, and often, people who are unused to having that power may become exhilarated by it. It is much the same in how casinos hook new players; New player wins big, loves the rush, comes back for more, and they can't control themselves. A firearm establishes a position of power, in this case apparently unknown prior to this class, and while I admire the enthusiasm, it must be tempered with wisdom and control, not simply a power-rush.
