In the article " Fort Carson solider arrested for allegedly firing gun at people outside bar" by Maria St. Louis-Shancez what matters is that a man trusted by the US government tried to kill someone. The fact that this man was in the army, navy, or marines he thinks he can fire a gun at civilized people which is against the law and this man should know his laws very well. The man should be severely fined and punished for his actions in the act of almost killing a citizen. This is very scary to think that someone that was hired to protect our country almost killed someone. He had also had felony's in the past which i think that the government should take more precautions, so that people will not do this and not hire people that have had criminal records.

  1. It's hard to say what would cause this man to do such a thing, but one point that draws my attention is where it occurred -- outside of a bar. Life of an Army/Navy man or woman can be very stressful at times, and people react to stress differently. Some people bottle it up, while others talk about their problems. The man may have had a few too many drinks and hit his breaking point. I do agree with you that it's a scary thought, and he should be punished severely. It's a really dangerous situation, and it's unpredictable. Can you think of any procedures that the US government can put into place in order to prevent situations like this from occurring?
