- Establish an Active and Reserve CCW program modeled after the one currently used for retired law enforcement.
- Prac app portion of the CCW program to consist of additional classroom studies and shooting tables added to the current pistol marksmanship setup. This is where use of force and shoot/don't shoot scenarios get run. As it is with rifles, the current tables establish score for badge rating purposes, with additional tables being on a pass/fail basis.
- Update the T/E to have the pistol as a standard sidearm for team leaders and above, corpsmen, and weapons section gunners. Update number of pistols in the T/E accordingly.
- Arm duty personnel down to the level of barracks duty NCO.
- Set up a weapons locker in every duty hut. In the event of an attack, the DNCO, DSNCO, or OOD should be able to form and arm an Ad Hoc fire team within moments of first encountering a shooter.
- Allow personal firearms and ammunition to be stored in DOD approved locking containers on base housing.
- Have the CCW program a requirement for recruiting school, possibly other MOS' that interact frequently with the public, like PA and CA folks.
- Considerable penalties for ND's and other assorted negligence.
Anyways, I'm not going to be replacing Dunford when he bumps up to the CJCOS slot. and I'm sure half of these ideas would make people scream. But I'd like to think it's halfway workable.
And that's my armchair generalship for the weekend.
