Let me start this by saying the obvious: I am not on Senator McCain’s Christmas card list; he is not on mine; and we’re both no doubt very happy about that.

Honestly, the outside world is not your Xbox. People do not wander around with heavy weapons, waiting for the right moment of social disorder to set them off. Doing so causes talk.
PS: Every Republican politician and pundit knows this instinctively. Even those of us who never served in the military. That it took the Obama administration so long to work this out for themselves is profoundly… diagnostic.
