re: #11 Destro

I don’t know why the issue of body armor came up.

All I said is modern weapons make it easier for women and children to utilize said weapons - I offered no morality if that is a good or bad thing - only a utilitarian observation.

Light weight weapons, easy to maintain, means civilians need less training and less strength to wield and use them.

Weight of equipment just kind of crept in, as sometimes happens here. As for the weapons, I’d agree they need less strength to wield, but an AK still needs a lot of training if its user is to use well.

More later.
