Yup, that's the scary part. The Coasties doing the boarding aren't trained as law enforcement, or even given special firearms training. My emphasis concerning 43north's post:
"Most of those young coasties wouldn't know what to do if they had to use those weapons. THAT is what makes me nervous. Soldiers are forced to patrol live fire zones like NOLA w/o mags but these guys roam around marinas and boats where there are LOTS of tripping hazards. Were their weapons loaded? This is a disaster waiting to happen."

Weapons training includes Military as well as Law Enforcement response. They are not the CowBoys of the Coast.
