hummmmmmmmm! well you just pass a law to trim The Posse Comitatus Act and yep, there you go. How many people have been killed on military installations in the last year by servicemen? I think this is a fair question to ask, well here in the land of Creative Writing aka, ATS

What's an "average" handgun? What's it shooting? 9mm, 9mm+, .357, 40, .45, 5x7mm, something else? What's the range?
Who is the "average" shooter? Do they have any prior military experince and if so as what? Most military and police have been through the gas chamber, so they aren't unfamiliar with tear gas and trying to maintain thought and process with it. How often do they practice? I know several civillian shooters who practice often once a week. There are a variety of pistol courses available, including under stress, at night, while moving....many are "better" than police.
Didnt see any serviceman jumping on this fool to stop him yet they died.
adding, I think you dont understand The Posse Comitatus Act and why it exists.
