They Should Have Joined the Marines

Adam Lanza had talked about joining the Marines since he was seventeen. Jacob Roberts, who shot up a mall in Oregon, likewise wanted to join the Marines. Too bad for them that they never did. They would not have had to kill themselves after killing civilians. They could have done so in Iraq or Afghanistan while wearing a Marine uniform and be lauded as heroes defending our freedoms by fighting terrorists “over there” so we don’t have to fight them “over here.”
