Our Future Generations, Will They Exist?


Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “Learn from the mistakes of others. When you insist on making them all yourself, you won’t live long enough. In fact, you won’t live long at all!” ~ Soldier’s Proverb

Our Army, rather than ramping-up small-arms training for all soldiers, is purchasing thousands of ostensibly non-lethal “rifles” that fire pepper-filled balls.

These are presumably for riot-control “missions.”

Yet, I thought we had armies for fighting wars, and police for dealing with riots. Apparently, not any more!

Soft-headed, liberal politicians, and denizens of the Pentagon alike, obviously aren’t comfortable with American soldiers shooting real bullets, launched from real rifles and pistols, at real enemies.

Instead, we’re now asked to shoot nothing more harmful than pepper-filled balls! Liberals foolishly, mistakenly, naively believe that we can have “casualty-free wars!”

This paradoxical, but persistent, preoccupation with “non-lethal control” in military circumstance is the reason our most dangerous, most fearsome, most ruthless enemies around the globe fear us less and less with each passing day.

Instead of quaking in their shoes at the mere thought of angering the USA (the way they used to), they must now be howling with laughter at this latest addition to our “arsenal.”

Liberals’ logically inexplicable, but deeply-ingrained, weakness when confronted with decisions to kill amoral, evil monsters who masquerade as cause-obsessed, human beings, places us all is grave danger!

History does not deal kindly with the weak-willed, self-indulgent, self-deluded, and unprepared. Such nations, and individuals, are quickly and unceremoniously relegate to the dustbin of history!

We are all here this day, only because we had audacious, courageous ancestors who were willing to fight for their lives, and by extension, ours.

Descendants of those who were unwilling to fight, aren’t here. They never existed!

When we, in this generation, are unwilling to fight for our lives and for future generations yet unborn, but instead continue to self-indulgently delude ourselves (as evidenced by the foregoing), our memory, and our posterity, will never exist either.

And probably shouldn’t!

Very disappointed in the article. The Army is not “disarming.” This is yet another tool in the tool kit. Special ops has used riot control agents successfully to capture high value targets alive when women and children are present. Tear gas, smoke grenades, all part of the non-lethal tool kit, but doesn’t replace lethal force when needed. A large portion of the (too small) Army is now National Guard, who have riot control and anti-looting as part of their missions. (LA riots, post Hurricane Katrina ring a bell anyone?). Not all force is or should be lethal. As much as… Read more »


You couldn’t have said more succinctly. The Politicians are getting ready to take us all down. Do you understand MOLON LABE.


Might as well issue sling shots and a bag of marbles. Probably a lot cheaper. One second thought the marbles might really hurt and we can’t have that.

Especially if our Constitution,in it’s entirety,is restored to it’s rightful place,I’m ever hopeful.


Or, maybe, they are purchasing those rifles for another use altogether. A more domestic use.

Ding, ding, ding. At least in the beginning. The coming elections should be interesting.


That was also my first thought. Preparing our military to control the civilian population? The question would also be, Lefty Antifas and confiscators or Patriotic 2Aers WTSHTF.

@Connie, Perhaps the National Command Authority should order the entire Military to conduct regular and ongoing U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights classes from the Joint Chiefs down to the newest E1. The NCA could do it with a whispered word.
