    How much more out of touch can this guy prove himself to be? He'd be lucky if Delta doesn't greet him in his home for a surprise party in the middle of the night. He's willing to call for it to get other people to do his dirty work but doesn't have the balls to try it himself.

    So, Admiral McRaven Just Called for a Military Coup, Kinda

    Not surprising. After Obunghole got rid of all those brass who did not tow his line all that was left were lib suck ups. Hopefully Trump can weed those out and the lower ranks would refuse to obey such a order.

    He might wear that SEAL trident, but I think the men under his command feel differently than he does.

    It’s beyond my comprehension how someone in the military can be anti 2A.
    It does seem to be mostly officers though.

    I don't know...I work with more than a few anti-2A enlisted fools. But they are not "tip of the spear" (neither am I), I bet they have not touched a firearm since basic and for many of them that is approaching 10 years.

    McRaven is not the only one either, this is old but Mark Kelly, David Petraeus, Stanley McChrystal, Michael Hayden, Thad Allen, Wesley Clark and Other Veteran Leaders Launch New “Veterans Coalition for Common Sense” to Urge Elected Leaders to Do More to Prevent Gun Tragedies - Giffords

    Like to point out to these armchair Generals that they can't even control Afghanistan or Iraq so how would they even hope to take control of a big swath of the middle of the US? Yeah I thought so. And I can tell them they can kiss any replacement parts or completed M1 Abrams goodbye as General Dynamics plant outside of Lima Ohio is in a heavy Republican district.
