What makes Navy SEALS elite? Matthew Berkus Matthew Berkus, former Hospital Corpsman at United States Navy Answered Apr 5 · Upvoted by Henry Baker, former Naval Flight Officer, SELRES at United States Navy (1994-2008) and Aaron Spaulding, former Boatswains Mate/ Small Boat Unit at United States Navy Originally Answered: Why are Navy SEALs so elite? A Navy SEAL Master Chief put it to me like this (I am paraphrasing, obviously):

Why are Navy SEALs, or for that matter, any special operations soldier more capable?

Special Forces take quality individuals and give them a high quantity of training.

The Master Chief said: Look, shooting a rifle is shooting a rifle, small unit tactics are the same across the board. A Marine Corps squad is going to know the various maneuvers to break contact just the same as a Navy SEAL platoon. Marines shoot rifles just like Navy SEALs. etc. What is the difference? The difference is that the Marine grunt will have shot 2000 rounds of live ammo, the Navy SEAL will have shot 20,000. The Marine squad will have practiced small unit tactics a dozen+ times, the Navy SEAL platoon will have practiced it hundreds of times. He said that a 16 man SEAL Platoon will fire more live ammo during a few months of training than a 43 man Marine Platoon will fire all year.

The person who does more of something will, generally, be better at it than the person that does less of it.

Will gun owners fight a civil war if the second amendment was repealed? Barry Gold Barry Gold, former Web Programmer (2003-2008) Answered Jun 5 No.

Not because gun owners are sheep who would turn in their weapons. Not even because — let’s be frank — the people who really care would just hide their weapons.

The reason is simple: before the Second Amendment can be repealed, you need to get 2/3 of the House of Representatives, 2/3 of the Senate, and 3/4 of the states to agree.

That means not just the mostly urban states like California, NY, Massachusetts, etc. It means you have to get a good chunk of the South and the Midwest to agree. And a lot of people in the South own firearms. They aren’t going to elect people who will approve that amendment.

And the Midwest is mostly farms and open country. People out there own firearms for a good reason: they need them. In LA, I can call the police and get a response in maybe 15 minutes. If you’re out in the country, you’ll wait over an hour for the Sheriff’s deputy to get there, if there’s a deputy available right away.

Those people aren’t going to vote to repeal the 2nd Amendment.

So the only way the Second Amendment gets repealed is if there’s a huge — and I mean HUGE — shift in public opinion. Not just “liberals” getting more het up about gun violence, but many more people who don’t own guns and don’t see any reason why they would ever want to.

Not going to happen in my lifetime, I don’t think. Maybe 100 years from now. Maybe never.

How many guns bought using the gun show loophole have actually been used in gun crimes? How do supporters of closing that loophole expect it to be enforced? Isn’t that law a toothless tiger?

Want some hard facts?

The Bureau of Justice Statistics in the Clinton administration (no friend to gun owners there) did a HUGE study in 1999. They interviewed 18,000 federal and state inmates - each incarcerated for a crime in which they used a firearm.

The question asked to the inmates who were willing to participate in the survey was: “from where did you acquire your gun? “ How many - what percent- do you think replied that they got their guns from a gun show? Take a wild guess.

OK, enough suspense - the number was 0.7 percent. 7/10ths of 1 percent! The vast majority of the inmates got their guns from friends, fellow gang members, family members, and from illicit sources, i.e theft from vehicles and houses. Big shock there, right?

The gun show “loophole” is myth, and that falsehood is perpetuated by the anti-gun media relentlessly. Tell a lie often enough and people will come to believe it, said Hitler’s chief propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
