I found myself screaming at the television screen this morning while watching a segment focusing on the availability of military vehicles to the civilian market. They featured (and POV criticized) the offering of an M75 APC on eBay. Statements were made by the "reporter" (whose name I didn't catch and I cannot find the segment posted on FOX's website yet) and agreed to with approval and tongue-clucking by talking head Steve Doocy that "civilians have no need to own military vehicles." I get a real allergic reaction to statements that begin, "civilians have no need to own . . ." (Insert collectivist appetite of the day, semi-automatic rifles, "assault magazines," 3-D printers, etc.) I would be interested to have a statement from the Military Vehicle Preservation Association (MVPA) about their position on this outrageous segment, and have emailed them for their reaction.
LATER: For those of you who Facebook, you might want to let Doocy understand the depth of his stupidity: https://www.facebook.com/SteveDoocy
