Comment Re:Hillary! and guns? (Score 1) 706

I actually agree with that. I'm a gun enthusiast with 16 years of military service and I have no interest in seeing assault rifles, nor any other type of gun, taken away "just because". But I see very little from her on specific gun types and more on making sure only responsible, mentally healthy people can have access to them. I fail to see how that's unreasonable...

No one has said anything about taking away "muh gunns"...they just want to make it harder for people to get them who shouldn't have them.

“I know we are a smart enough nation to figure out how you protect responsible gun owners' rights and get guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them,” Mrs. Clinton replied.

There are many benefits for the government to have "soldiers" doing the cyber stuff as opposed to hiring civilians, though I'll spare repeating what many others have already said in other comments. However, for the military to be able to find hackers AND in-shape bodies significantly reduces the available pool of candidates. These guys will never see combat and therefore have no reason to adhere to the same physical standards, though I do think they should be trained in at least some of the aspects such as basic rifle marksmanship, drill and ceremonies and other non-physical disciplines. I understand your statement about not having "different" type of soldiers, but in this case there's just no getting around it. Maybe they could put them in different uniforms (sweatpants, perhaps...HAH!)?
